I wanted to wish all of us a very happy and healthy New year. שנה טובה!!!!!
Going to visit my son's Yeshiva this Shabbat
We have a Shabbat Horim (Parents Shabat) this Shabbat. I have no idea what to expect, food wise. I'm a bit nervous that there aren't going to be any good food options for me. Yeshiva and healthy food don't really go together. I'm bring fruit with me so that I have a healthy snack for Shabbat afternoon. The biggest problem…
What are people making for Shavuot?
