It’s true, it’s harder to keep kosher than to not keep kosher. It’s harder to prepare a Shabbat meal than to veg out in front of the TV watching Seinfeld reruns.  And it’s harder to read the Torah portion than to read Harry Potter.

So why do we do it? Why do we lead a Jewish life? Why do we insist on running up the stairs when the vast majority of the human race is taking the easy way out on the escalator?

Because this is the life that G-d wants us to be living. And also because, as Jews, we are blessed with the ability to hear the music playing underneath our feet as we climb up this ancient and holy staircase.

And this is our mission as Jewish moms: to raise our children so that they will also hear the  subtle yet incomparable melody that emanates from shoe-level as we climb this Jewish Stairway to Heaven.

So, Jewish mom, what are you going to do today to make being Jewish a little more fun,  a little more melodious, for your child?

    It really hits the spot and puts our life and life choices in perspective in a FUN way! Thank you and I’ll be sharing this with many moms. This is like the concise Jewish Mary Poppins version.
    Personally I’m going to start B.N. by showing my kids how much fun I’m having doing all the mitzvot…at least from 7am to 8am and from 4pm to 8pm for starters. Thanks for the reminder.
