B”H Would you walk away from a successful career in broadcast journalism – producing interviews and interviewing… wait, listen to this, celebrities like Gweneth Paltrow, Madonna, and Johnny Depp on a daily basis? My guest did. I have Heather Dean on the show! Heather is now the host of aish.com’s weekly podcast, “At Home in Jerusalem” where she gets to talk to some of the most influential people in the Jewish
B”H She went from being “the bride who knew nothing” to becoming “The Queen of Kosher.” Ladies, I have Jamie Geller on the show! You know Jamie right!? If you don’t, you will soon, and if you already know Jamie, you will love her even more. Yes, we all love Jamie Geller, particularly because she is real about the kitchen. You know that place where you have to go make
B”H Some pink fashion to inspire your winter days… Because everything is so much prettier in pink! Plus, we have the winter blues around here with an ongoing cold that does not leave our household. Pink is making me so happy right now. And hey, Adar is coming, so we have to be…. HAPPY! (Remember this post from 2015?) Now, I couldn’t just be showing you this, without talking about the
B”H This episode is a synopsis of my talk at the Nishmah Shabbaton in St. Louis, Missouri. Many of the participants asked me to put together a synopsis so they could review our conversation. I thought it was a great idea. So I recorded here most of what I shared with them, although I excluded many personal anecdotes and jokes. You can also download a transcript here. I hope you
B”H Do you enjoy writing, tweaking words, or communicating in the written form?

B”H Has your child ever come home from school sad because there is someone who is making his life miserable? Other than the teacher that is. We’ve all been there, haven’t we? It is so painful to see our kids in pain. And sometimes all we want to do is rescue them. Social dynamics can be hard – not just for kids, but hey, even for adults. Let’s face it.
B”H Recently, I was working on something inspiring to say during candle lighting at a Shabbaton that I will be leading in St. Louis and I came across a super cool story that happened at the turn of the millennium and that somehow I had not heard before (most likely because I was not lighting Shabbat candles regularly at the time). But, as you might know from this post, Shabbat candle
B”H Is there a gap between what you thought you’d be as a parent and where you are as a parent? Do you worry that you’re messing up your kids?

I have Randi Rubenstein on Jewish

B”H Parashat Bo: When Your Children Ask… I have a special episode for you today – second episode this week. This episode is on the topic on parenting based on this week’s Parasha – Parashat Bo. I write a monthly column for The Jewish Herald Voice and I figured I’d share sometimes the pieces that I write there here, for those of you who like audio and/or who don’t live
B”H Chodesh Tov, everyone! You know I wished it was Rosh Hashanah, so I could talk about this dress, but hey it’s only Shvat, which means it’s almost Tu B’Shvat, so let’s run with that! After all, who needs to wait till Rosh Hashanah to wear this cute Pomegranate Dress!? Pomegranates are one of the seven species of the Land of Israel, right? You heard about it here first: The Pomegranate
B”H Are you an over protective mother? Do you allow your kids to do age appropriate things independently, despite the risks that might be involved? What is age appropriate? As a society we do not know any more. Do you let the fear of some terrible thing happening – what my guest calls “Worse First Thinking” – overcome you? Welcome to Jewish Latin Princess. I’m Yael Trusch, your host. I

My guest today has nurtured her musical talent from a very early age. I have composer, singer and performer Franciska on the show. Franciska grew up in Moscow of all places, in an observant Jewish family. And as
B”H The Zara Home Sale… what can I say… Ad Infinitum! There is so much to choose from and all so pretty. Not nearly as affordable as their clothing sale, yes, but I have to say, when it comes to linens Zara has excellent quality. Here are some of my picks from the Zara Home Sale. I also want to highlight these as some of my favorites on the table
B”H The Zara Sale – The moment you’ve all been waiting for! Well, not really. At least I hope not! (Don’t know about you, but I’m waiting for Moshiach.) In the mean time, in case you want to get something special for the momentous occasion, indeed the Zara winter sale is on! Ok fine, I’ll stop already. But there are some really good tzniut picks, as well as a huge
B”H Imagine you were the only one who had recorded on video a monumental event that changed the course of your country’s history? By “accident”. My guest today is Alexandra Zapruder, the granddaughter of Avraham Zapruder, the Russian Jewish immigrant living in Dallas, who recorded the Zapruder film – raw unedited footage of President John F. Kennedy’s assasination. Divine Providence? I think so. What does Alexandra think? How did Mr.
B”H As we wrapped up the Hanukkah Holiday, I was thinking of Jewish education – not our children’s but ours. As I’ve mentioned before Hanukkah (Chanukah) is connected to the word chinuch, education in Hebrew. I often hear women sigh in dismay at the level of Jewish education they’ve managed to provide their kids via a Sunday School/Hebrew School program, AND then sigh at their own level of education. They wished
B”H Are you a hot mess when it comes to motherhood? Be honest. It can be totally overwhelming and yes, even those of us who thought we had it all under control before we had children, well let’s just say, things change! How do we become a better version of ourselves, how can we be more present and not totally overwhelmed and as they say in yiddish – suflaygen?
