B”H Hello everyone! I love it when my readers read my mind! As I was working on this post, I received a message from one of my lovely readers … “Yael, could you please share with us more about the custom of baking challah in the shape of a key the week after Pesach (Passover)?” You asked and you shall have my dears!
B”H Hello everyone! Welcome to another installment of Wednesday Wink, JewishLatinPrincess’ series on Divine Providence (Hashgacha Pratit). Divine Providence means that G-d is involved in every detail of our lives, albeit His involvement is concealed within nature, or the natural order of creation. Thus, nothing in our lives is “coincidence”, although it may very well seem like it. ¡Hola a todas! Bienvenidas a otro episodio de Guiñada divina en JewishLatinPrincess.
B”H Hello everyone! Now that we’re all back to normal life, I have exciting news to share. Today I’m visiting the blog Design Megillah! As many of you know I’m crazy over interior design and so I’ve been reading Rita’s blog for a while. I can’t be more thrilled to be featured there today. ¡Hola a todas! Ahora que estamos todas de vuelta a la normalidad, tengo una noticia emocionante que compartir con ustedes. Hoy

B”H Hello, everyone! How is Pesach going? It’s the second day of Chol Hamoed Pesach (intermediate days), so I wanted to share five small things that save my sanity on this busy holiday. Our family’s Pesach custom is to not use processed foods on Passover, so pretty much everything is home made. In addition, it’s all made with vegetables that can be peeled. The food is actually super delicious, but preparation is
B”H I’m all about done so I want to show you quickly the Passover Centerpiece on our table. Everyone has showered and we are pretending to rest. Hopefully naps will happen very soon. It will be a long night tonight and a most important part of tonight is to engage the children. That’s why we do all those different things during the Seder. The entire Seder is framed around this
B”H This is the home stretch right before Pesach and I’m feeling it. But I’m still smiling, my friends… still smiling. Estamos en la recta final antes de Pesaj y lo estoy sintiendo, pero me sigo sonriendo amigas, me sigo sonriendo…Welcome to another installment of Wednesday Wink. Wednesday Wink is a series on Divine Providence (Hashgacha Pratit). Divine Providence means that G-d is involved in every detail of our lives, albeit
B”H It’s two days before our beloved Menachem’s upshernish – third birthday and haircutting ceremony- and it’s Erev Shabbat. So it’s quite busy around here. (Oh and the kids finished school at 12 pm today! ) An upshernish five days before Pesach is somewhat of a challenge. I decided to make a small(ish) event in our back yard, so no-chametz on this birthday. No cookies, or cakes but no worries,
B”H Today I’m super thrilled to begin a new series here on JewishLatinPrincess titled Wednesday Wink. Wednesday Wink will be a series on Divine Providence (Hashgacha Pratit). Divine Providence means that G-d is involved in every detail of our lives, albeit His involvement is concealed within nature, or the natural order of creation. Thus, nothing in our lives is “coincidence”, although it may very well seem like it. Hoy estoy super emocionada
B”H Shavua Tov my friends! The month of Nissan has arrived! Did you know that the month of Nissan always falls in the Spring season (in the Land of Israel) because the Jewish calendar is adjusted in a super cool mathematical way, so that it should be that way? (More on calendar in my post here.) So, even if some of us are not feeling the Spring weather, apparently Spring is
B”H I recently found these blue pointy shoes at the clearance aisle in DSW and gifted them to myself for the upcoming holiday of Pesach (Passover). The Talmud does say that a woman needs new clothes and jewelry for the Holidays. I take this mitzvah very seriously ;-) Recientemente me compré estos zapatos puntiagudos azules que encontré en rebaja, como regalito de Pesaj. El Talmud dice que la mujer necesita

Thank You! Gracias por todos los lindos comentarios y respuestas al artículo en JewishWoman.org. Ha sido muy lindo llegar a una audiencia mas
B”H About two months ago, my friend and makeup artist, Rivki, booked me to help her style her booth at a JCC Women in Business Fair. Having worked with her before and being that she’s client pretty much perfect, I gave her a quick resounding yes and got to work. I remembered this post from Candice at Lots of Lovely. I wanted to re-create Candice’s bar cart concept, as it would add
B”H Shavua Tov, my friends! It’s finally starting to feel like Spring around here. Yes! However, I’m not sure if it’s the blooming trees or the dust that came with the pre-Pesach decluttering, but I got hit by major allergies, last week. Nothing a little medicine can’t help with ;-) and we’re moving along… ¡Shavua Tov, amigas! Finalmente, parece que llegó la primavera por aquí. ¡Yey! Aunque les cuento, que no
B”H I hope you had a nice and joyful Purim! This week we heard beautiful tips and words of inspiration from Patty Zrihen Makeup Artist. (In case you missed it, you can read the post here.) As a follow up to that post, I wanted to share with you a few “beauty tips” that we learn from our Purim heroine, Queen Esther. When evil Haman threatened to annihilate the entire Jewish people, Queen Esther risked
B”H Welcome to another JLP Profile! JLP Profiles feature Jewish Latin women, who infuse their physical endeavors with spirituality in a unique way. If you missed the first JLP Profile, you can find it here. Today, I’m thrilled to introduce you to an old friend, Patty Zrihen. Patty is a talented makeup artist based in Miami, FL. I had the honor to have Patty do my makeup on my wedding day,
B”H I’ve missed you! Thank you for all the sweet messages regarding my absence from JLP blog. Not to worry, JLP is in full force. Let me give you an update on Purim. Mishloat Manot are ready… ok, sort of. Nothing is too formal or elaborate this year around here. ¡Las he extrañado! Gracias por todos los mensajeros cariñosos, anticipando mi regreso al JLP blog. No se preocupen que JLP
B”H Happy Rosh Chodesh Adar! The Talmud tells us that once the month of Adar enters, we increase in simcha (joy)- “Mi Shenichnas Adar, Marvim B’Simcha“. I have much to be joyful about this month, and in Rosh Chodesh in particular, because I got married to my dear husband on Rosh Chodesh Adar. Yes, tomorrow is our tenth wedding anniversary! (This month has two days of Rosh Chodesh– today, the last
B”H Shavua Tov, my friends! How is everybody doing? Are you feeling the busyness of this time of year as much as I am? I’m holding on to my dear calendar/agenda because it’s getting pretty busy around here, and I must keep sane. So let me tell you about my new surprising discovery, which will be another tool to keep my sanity. ¡Shavua Tov, amigas! ¿Cómo están? ¿Sienten cuan ajetreado
B”H I’m a big fan of a fruity drink like a bul (pronounced “bool”) or sangria. In Puerto Rico we call it “bul” (“bulles” plural) rather than punch. If it includes wine and other alcohol then we just call it “sangría.” I make it for any festive occasion- a women’s gathering, bridal shower, birthday celebrations, and so on. It’s pretty much no fail and always a hit (and you all know from
