Spoiler alert! We are using these Mini Purim Cupcake Wrappers for our mishloach manot this year. The picture above is approximately how they will look, although we might use healthier content. Here we used mini marshmallows and “Clicks” which have some sort of flour/crunchy filling inside. These mini Purim cupcake wrappers are a little bit […]

Zachor It Purim Game

Last year my sister’s family (in particular my niece), made this cute game for Purim, which they gave out instead of extra mishloach manot (that is, they fulfilled the mitzvah, and then these were for fun.) The game is called Zachor It! based on the Spot It! game. The idea of the game is that there […]

A Temple in Flames Book Review

I meant to review this in the summer during the 9 days, but given what was going on then, I found it too heavy to review this book. That is not to say that I did not find it to be interesting and a useful resource, just given its subject matter, it was too difficult. […]

Dreidel Crayons for Hanukkah

Jonah magnet project
