In secular society, January 1st is the official start of the new year but for Jewish people world wide, Rosh Hashanah marks the new year and new beginnings. For me, Rosh Hashana is one of my very favorite Jewish holidays. It is generally celebrated in September or early October. We cannot give you an exact date since the Hebrew lunar calendar is only 354 days verses 365 days in the solar calendar so the days don't line up the same every year. For example, Rosh Hashana 2018 begins on the evening of September 9th whereas the next year the holiday starts on the evening of September 29, 2019. This often coincides with the onset of a new school year. Growing up, when we went back to school shopping we also picked up a new Fall outfit for the High Holidays. To this day we buy a school calendar (September – September) rather than the traditional January to January calendar. It seems more organic, more intuitive. Continue Reading →
OMG! Ok, these Dinosaur menorahs may not be strictly Kosher (because the candles are not in a straight line) but they check both the unique and absolutely fabulous boxes! Here is the kicker, you need to order them TODAY, or if not today, very soon for them to arrive in time for Chanukah. This year, 2015, Hanukkah begins the night of December 6th! According to Lisa Pierce, of thevanillastudio, most of these menorahs will ship in 2-3 weeks but as we get closer to Chanukah, and the word about these dinosaur menorahs starts to get out, our gut is that she may get swamped with orders. Whether you choose a Menorasaurus Rex, Menociraptor, or Triceratops, all of these menorasaurs are Hand-crafted made to order! Constructed from repurposed plastic toys and metal candle cups, these dinosaur menorahs are fully functional and reusable for Chanukah fun far into the future! They are available to order in gold and silver and are generally 10″ – 15″ long and 5″-8′ tall. And yes, we are definitely adding these to our Hanukkah posts.

This week has the potential of being a profoundly spiritual week for millions of people across America. Not only did Jews across the world celebrate Yom Kippur, a day of atonement and repentance, a day reflection and meditation, Pope Francis landed in Washington, D.C and immediately began sharing his message of love for all. Today we sincerely hope that the Pope's message will remind us all, no matter our personal religious faith or affiliation, to find the courage to make our lives a blessing, today and everyday.
