The Best of the Week

Soooooooooooooooooooo…what happened this week? Funny you should ask, kids. Funny you should ask.

Plenty of Rosh Hashanah stuff for you to choose from. For all you foodies (because who isn’t a foodie), here is a recipe for apple cake. Supposedly, it’s for people who don’t like honey cake. I happen to like both. So take that MyJewishLearning.com.

Adding to the ever-expanding MyJewishLearning video library, Sway Machinery singer, Jeremiah Lockwood, explains to all of us everything you want to know about the shofar.

A confession. One of my goals for the summer was to make it out to Coney Island. In all honesty, I thought I would have made it 3-4 times. In actuality, I didn’t even make it once. A goal for next summer. And to throw it in my face, we just published an article about the Jewish history of Coney Island.

Finally, much-more-famous-than-me author, Anita Diamant blogged for us this week. Pretty cool.
