My brain seems to be on vacation this week. I thought I already sent this out to you! Thank you for your patience.

I decided to take a look at the Blessing of the Children this week. It is a weekly Shabbat ritual and a simple thing that can have tremendous and long-lasting impact on your children and on your family. I am not emotionally prepared to speak publicly about the horrendous event in Sandy Hook, but I know many of you are holding your children a little tighter and trying to bring more goodness into their worlds.

Blessing Over The Children
It is a long standing tradition to give our children a blessing every Friday night as Shabbat is beginning. This tradition stems directly from the Torah and continues to be packed with valuable meaning for today.


Here is where you can find me chatting about Jewish things. Stop by the forum and chime in:


Thank you for reading.
