The funny thing is, you’ll get a different answer depending on who you ask…
Orthodox Jews will tell you one thing
Conservative Jews will tell you another
Reform Jews will say something else entirely
As the old joke goes: two Jews, three opinions.
But who’s “right”? (SPOILER: It’s not a question of “right” or “wrong”)
In this post, we’ll demystify it once and for all… we’ll walk through the Ketubah signing process, the witness requirements according to each group, and most importantly – who you should choose as your witness?
The Jewish festival of lights is a great chance to relax:
Light a Menorah
Spin some dreidels
Eat delicious Hanukkah donuts
But more importantly – it’s a wonderful opportunity to get together with our family and friends and tell SHOW them how much they mean to us.
By giving them the best Hanukkah gifts that’ll make Santa wish he was born Jewish!
“But wait a minute… What are some cool Hanukkah presents I can get?”
Sit tight my friend… because I’m about to show you a bunch of unique & traditional Hanukkah gift ideas you can give during the 8 days of Hanukkah! (or if you’re super-generous, give one gift on each night of Hanukkah)
Ready? Let’s show the fat guy in the red costume what we’ve got!
Shabbat is officially in! Now, go grab a plate and enjoy a delicious Shabbat dinner with your family after a long week.
HOLD ON there tiger! Aren’t you forgetting something?
First, we do Kiddush and drink Kiddush wine.
Then, we do Hamotzi and eat a piece of Challah.
… And only then, we get to sink our teeth into the yummy Shabbos food!
Today, we’ll focus on the second part – the Challah… specifically, the Challah boards. Because you need to serve the Challah somehow, right?
But I’m not here to help you find just any Challah board (you don’t need my help for that)… Instead, I’ll help you find beautiful, modern Challah boards that you wouldn’t find in an average Jewish kitchen. Because who the hell wants to be average?
If you walked into a Jewish home during Hanukkah (please make sure you’re invited to one… otherwise that’s called “breaking and entering”), odds are you’ll see two colors stand out: blue and white (sometimes silver).
Remember the days you had to manually turn off the refrigerator lights before Shabbat?
I remember I had to unscrew the lightbulb, cover the switch with scotch tape and find all sorts of creative (read: annoying) workarounds.
Well, not anymore!
Thankfully, some of the biggest refrigerator brands came to the rescue and created Sabbath mode refrigerators to make our lives much easier.
In fact – the only problem now is that there are too many Sabbath mode fridges to choose from.
Everyone is throwing buzzwords, deals, coupons our way – all in the attempt to catch our attention.
Where do we even begin?
How do we know which refrigerators are truly Kosher?
What does Sabbath mode and Star-K even mean?
I spent 3 days writing this monster guide – to help you find the answers to all those questions and to help you find a brand new Sabbath mode refrigerator that’ll serve you well for MANY years to come.
