Me, Me, Me

hannah-katsmanIlana-Davita interviewed me at her blog, as part of a series on Israeli bloggers.

At least one reader caught my name in the current issue of Parents Magazine in an article on parenting around the world.  Thank you to the many readers who contributed to the lively discussion on What Defines Israeli Parenting, one of the best discussions on this site. The reporter  mentioned the “quiet hour” Between Two and Four, along with Robin‘s comment about pressure to have at least three children. The article will go online eventually. By the way Robin is in a contest; please vote for Robin’s photography here, no registration required.

My review of Mitzvah Girls, by Ayala Fader, will be published in a journal in October. Unfortunately you’ll have to pay to read it online, buy the journal or actually go to a physical library. Eventually I will post my thoughts here along with publishing details. The review, along with some technical blogging issues and our successful blogging event last week, is why I haven’t been blogging much.

The Rebbetzin’s Husband has posted Haveil Havalim, which included one of my posts (in keeping with the theme).

Wishing all of you a good week.


  1. (How weird, this latest post hasn’t shown up in my reader yet.)

    I loved the interview, and the Parents article was an interesting take on parenting styles around the world.

    It can be so hard to juggle different blogs, I’m barely keeping up with my own blog and my online shop since I’m competing in a major photography competition this week (I’d love it if you came by, tomorrow’s the final day to vote!), and my poor shop blog hasn’t been getting nearly the attention it should.

  2. So sad that my parents magazine subscription finally ran out! I somehow kept getting it years after I stopped paying for it, and my parents would bring it when they came to visit. I’ll have to ask them to pick one up. Congrats on all the great work!

  3. I really enjoyed that! Thanks to both of you.

  4. My MIL is here visiting and brought me a bunch of Parents magazines, which for some reason they keep sending to her. And lo and behold! Your article! It was great, although I can now see how difficult it must be to try to narrow down an entire culture’s view on parenting to one or two soundbytes.
