Of all the holidays in the Jewish year, none is more fun for children than Purim. Kid-friendly Purim activities include baking hamantaschen, delivering mishloach manot, gift baskets, to friends and neighbors, dressing up in costume, and shaking a grogger.
As Jews, we are given an awesome gift; Shabbos. Shabbat is the best day of the week. On Shabbos, we get to take a step back from the chaotic, busy lives that we all live and appreciate everything that we have been given.
Caring for plants is fun and can be done any time of year. In honor of the Jewish holiday of Tu B’Shevat, the Jewish New Year of the Trees, we offer a few winter, indoor suggestions for nurturing a green thumb in your children.
