  • The Weekly Dish from the "Forward"
  • Though July is almost over, here's what's in season
  • This is a really cool project that is inspiring my own
  • Vegan fare is growing in popularity in Israel
  • Some vegetarian recipes for the nine days (Tishat Hayamim) - the first days of the Jewish month of Av, when many Jews give up meat - to be discussed in more detail in a separate Commentary piece
  • I treated myself to a copy of this book, which I've mentioned on the site before, and about which I am very excited
  • I look forward to Monday mornings because of this
  • If you're in Houston, come to Brith Shalom's Shabbat morning service this week, and stay for a (free) Italian-themed luncheon!

  • Jewish food news from the Forward
  • A review of a "new" cookbook we mentioned previously 
  • I am very excited to announce that I will be starting as the new programming and communications associate for Congregation Brith Shalom at the end of the month!
  • A great piece on the fear that accompanies transitions
  • An interfaith campaign in response to global climate change
  • And this week's shout-out goes to the Houston Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA), where I recently became a foster volunteer. Through this experience, I brought home Pickles, a chihuahua mix I ended up adopting last weekend. The SPCA is a great organization that works to find temporary and forever homes for animals in need through local chapters in cities around the country. You can learn more about becoming a foster in Houston here, and more about adoption here
