I admit it. I‘ve got it too. We live in a digital era. With every new upgrade of your mobile and shrinking of an I-pad, you are expected to become more and more available to, well, everyone.

Family Day in Israel

Family Day in Israel

11 Feb 2013
In 1951 an 11-year-old Israeli girl named Nechama Frankel wrote a letter to a newspaper. She proposed that Israel establish a special day for mothers. As refugees from Poland, her family was used to honoring mothers and celebrating Mother’s Day as an important occasion. Nechama suggested that Mother’s Day be celebrated on the birthday of Henrietta Szold. Szold was an Israeli heroine. She founded the organization called Youth Aliyah. This organization rescued over 30,000 children from the Nazis. Sadly Henrietta had no children of her own. However, she spent her life championing children’s rights and was considered by many the mother of all the children her organization rescued.

What is Judaica?

What is Judaica?

04 Nov 2014
Judaica is all the objects used in the Jewish faith. These objects help us celebrate the Almighty and abide by his laws. For example, the mezuzah helps us to fulfill the commandment to write His name on our doorposts as written in Deuteronomy 11:20. The prayer shawl is used to complete the commandment to wear fringes on our garments as in Numbers 15:37-41. So when we ask, “what is Judaica?” we are asking about the very essence of how G-d is honored and obeyed in Judaism.
