When Mistakes Can Be Good for You - Parshat Nasso

Yesterday, I messed up. I was completely insensitive to someone I love. But here’s what happened afterwards…

Mismatched Shoes, Anyone?

Mon, 15 May 2017 12:00:00 EST

Dear Readers, Tell me honestly, has this ever happened to you? You were at an upscale event and looked down at your feet only to notice that you were wearing two different shoes! You painstakingly chose your outfit, carefully pairing it with matching accessories, only to later realize that you were wearing gorgeous earrings, but they were mismatched! Mortifying, right? Nope, not anymore! In case, you haven’t heard, the very latest trend in fashion is to wear mismatched shoes and different earrings. What may have previously been thought of a terrible fashion faux pas (or, as ridiculously absent-minded!) is now actually a very fashion-forward statement. Isn’t it amazing how trends change? Isn’t it even more amazing how we change along with them, and how something once thought of as unacceptable can become the new norm? While accessories are entirely benign, there are many areas where moder

Do You Like Standing Out or Fitting In? - Parshat Bamidbar

When Do You Celebrate Your Anniversary?

Thu, 04 May 2017 12:00:00 EST

Dear Readers, Are you married? Do you remember the day that you “tied the knot” and made the biggest commitment of your life? I wonder if you remember any of the details of that special day, like how you wore your hair or makeup, or the exact style of your bridal gown. While these details may be superfluous, I’ll bet that every year when this month comes around, you remember that your anniversary is approaching. And no matter how many years pass, when that special day finally does arrive, you celebrate it appropriately. This week, we celebrate the arrival of the Jewish month of Sivan. This month is important for the Jewish people as it commemorates when we actually became G‑d’s chosen nation, His “bride.” Rosh Chodesh Sivan is distinguished as the day on which the Jewish people arrived and camped before Mount Sinai. Six days later, on the sixth of Sivan, our marriage “ceremony” took place. We awoke to the awesome background concert of thunder

One of the worst things for a relationship is casual neglect. Here’s how to prevent a relationship from slipping into autopilot mode.

What Is Your Mission Statement?

Thu, 27 Apr 2017 12:00:00 EST

Dear Readers, A mission statement is a clear declaration of the aims and values of a company, organization or individual. Every successful business has one. Some mission statements are inspiring. They declare the company’s social consciousness to create products that are pure, free of chemicals and don’t harm the environment. Others emphasize the company’s exceptional customer service, value and quality. By articulating the company’s purpose, mission statements serve to guide the decision-making process and provide paths towards reaching an overall goal. Which makes me wonder . . . what is my mission statement as a wife, mother, writer and Jewish woman? And, if I would focus more on it, would it keep me better on track? In this week’s Torah portion, G‑d introduces the concept of shemittah, a Sabbatical year: “When you come to the land that I am giving you, the land shall rest a Shabbat to G‑d. For six years, you m
