Best of the Week

As Labor Day Weekend approaches (and Rosh Hashanah!), let’s take a look at what you may have missed this week over at MJL.

While not widely known in the Ashkenazic community, many Sephardic Jews participate in a special seder on Rosh Hashanah that goes beyond apples and honey.

With most kids back in school after this weekend, here are some Jewish-specific issues that many parents confront every August/September.

With Rosh Hashanah services coming up next week, here are some suggestions on how to engage your kids while at synagogue.

As a kid, one of my favorite Jewish customs was going down to the river near my house and throwing bread in the water for Tashlikh. Learn all about this awesome custom.

Finally, sign up for our brand new daily e-letter, Jewniverse. It really is going to be a highlight of your mornings.
