hi! glad to see this thread .... 

 

for the pp looking for an inexpensive siddur, i'll give a shout out for the koren-sacks siddur. it's orthodox, but i think might also be accessible to many who identify as cons/recon (i love love love the translations, and the commentary is quite different than what you'd find in artscroll, for example).  i got the personal UK version on amazon for about 10 €. it is so nice to have a tiny and complete siddur.


hi!

I was wondering if any of you mamas might have, or know where I could find, a pattern - or book of patterns - for knitting or crocheting kippa. I'm particularly looking to make a frik for a 3-5 year old. Thank you so much for your help!

Just checking in to say Be Happy, it's Adar!

 

I've not really been on MDC since the Yiddishe Mama's tribe was moved. I shouldn't be here now since I'm up to my eyelids in schoolwork. We finally sold our house and moved back into the city (to a two bedroom apt. BLEH)- but we are six blocks from Dd #1's  school and  Dd#2 will be going to preschool there in the fall.

Hi everyone!!! I thought I posted here way back when but apparently I didn't. I will try to keep up with this board but I forget to come back sometimes.

What's everyone doing for Purim? any MM themes or costume themes? We haven't decided yet.

Hello everyone! This is my first post, and I thought it might be a good place to post this (and if not please point me in the right direction) as I am really seeking to find a "tribe"! This is a message I wrote about seeking a community to live in, I guess it'd be easiest just to paste it here...

 

Seeking a Jewish Community… We are a family with children seeking an agricultural/permaculture/smallholding type of Jewish community. We decided long ago that the 9 to 5, work-a-day, suburban world is not the way we want to live. We want to raise our children (and ourselves!) on the land. We have looked into many communities, but have not yet found a fit. We have realized that we need to be seeking a community with a shared spiritual path. We plan to build our own home, have the family dairy cow, grow our food. We would like to share this lifestyle with others. We've made up a list of skills and abilities that we possess and want to be able to use to the benefit of a community... stone masonry stone carving wood carving blacksmithing growing and using herbs making medicinal tinctures growing fruits, vegetables, etc. leatherworking sewing pottery tending livestock teaching children We have an avid love of learning, especially old trades. Both of us constantly study, whether it's philosophy, spirituality, history, art, geography, sustainable living (gardening, building, power, etc.), almost anything we can get our hands on. Our homesteading/ sustainable living hero is John Seymour. We will go anywhere in the country for the right fit. I’m sure there is much, much more you would like to know about us, so please ask away!!!

 

Thank you for reading, and please let me know if there is a more appropriate place for this.

Yes, very much like a kibbutz I suppose. Any ideas?

Lovely to meet you!
I've signed up to mothering because I have lots of things on my mind that my non Jewish friends don't understand fully, so I'm here hoping for advice and friendship! smile.gif We live in the UK .

I am looking for advice. I am not Jewish, I have a client who is and she recently gave birth to a baby girl. This is not her first child so I think she has plenty of kid stuff. I was wondering what would be an appropriate gift to send her. Our relationship is one of personal trainer and client so we know each other well but not intimately, e.g. I've never met her family but I hear stories about them all the time.

Would love to get some input. Thank you.


Now that I am a mom I no longer have time for knit.gif,teapot2.GIF,read.gif

you could look at a source like this:

http://www.moderntribe.com/judaica/gift_ideas/for_baby

all depends on how observant they are, how into their religion, or not, they are.  but that link might give you some ideas.  or you could just buy a non-Jewish related gift.  Same as you probably would a Christian friend.

Thanks for your input! I ended up sending customized cookies from William Greenberg Desserts, a kosher bakery in NYC where she is from originally.
