My Makeover with Rivka Malka!

One of the highlights of my trip to Baltimore this summer was meeting up with speaker and transformational life coach Rivka Malka Perlman. I loooved spending time with Rivka Malka. The thing about her that most inspired me was that her life is NOT perfect. Let me explain. Like many of us, I’ve watched Rivka Malka’s videos over the years. And she always looks SO gorgeous, SO flawless. Like she does in this photo below: And then I got to her home. I guess I thought it would appear as flawless as Rivka Malka in this...

Am I Flunking Summer Vacation?

Until 4:30 PM yesterday afternoon, I felt like I was managing this summer vacation thing pretty darn well. We Weisbergs spent July in Baltimore and in Ontario at my husband’s family’s cottage. My kids enjoyed time with grandparents and cousins and swimming at the neighborhood pool/lake and going on fun outings here and there. And then, on August 1st, we returned to Israel. Which meant I had a month to fill somehow. My big kids would be very busy with friends, and getting ready and then going on the big annual youth-group camping...

Meet Singer Evyatar Banai’s Wife and Children (4-Minute Music Video)

Evyatar Banai, one of Israel’s most popular musicians, made news when he became religious and married his wife, Ruth, a Danish convert, 12 years ago, after meeting her at one of his concerts in New York City. If anything, since becoming religious, Evyatar Banai has become even more popular, with a huge following of religious as well as secular fans. I suspect that Banai made this special video featuring a day in the life of his family in order to give his secular fans a rare peek at the inside of a religious life–a JewishMOM...

What Mothers Look Like by the End of Summer Vacation

Even if I didn’t know the date, I would know we are in the home stretch of summer vacation just from seeing the worn out faces and tired eyes of mothers across Jerusalem. This morning I was walking along the street with 20-month-old Yonatan, when I found myself walking right behind one of those mothers with three young kids: a newborn in her carriage, a 2-year-old girl riding on the back of her carriage, and a 4-year-old son walking beside her carriage. Right after we crossed the street, the 2-year-old daughter, for some reason, got off the...

When You are Forced to Do Something You Don’t Want to Do–New-Orleans Style

At my mother-in-law’s cottage I spent many hours doing one of my favorite things in the world–reading old New Yorkers. And while there, I read one article called Starting Over by Malcolm Gladwell which I found truly inspirational, about the fate of the New Orleans evacuees from Hurricane Katrina in 1995. I found this article so hope-bolstering because I think all of us have been in situations when we, like the Katrina evacuees, were forced to do something we didn’t want to do. You got fired from a dream job. Your daughter...
