The New!

The New!

Jewish moms, SURPRISE!

After several months of late nights and hard work, I am SO THRILLED to be launching the new!

In honor of this site’s 10 year anniversary, a few months ago I decided that the time had finally come to create a new-and-improved I pray that this new site, which unites the website and the blog, will enable to inspire even more Jewish moms in their holy mission raising the next generation of the Jewish people.

But, the truth is that if I hadn’t received a ton encouragement and a ton of help, you would not be seeing this new site today.

From the bottom of my heart, I need to thank:

My husband, Joshua: Who slowly but surely convinced me over the course of several weeks that the thousands of Jewish moms who visit monthly deserve a better website. In fact, they deserve the best website possible.

Yaal Herman: Who is a gifted web designer and a dear friend of my husband’s for over 22 years. It was Yaal who convinced Josh that a new website was not a luxury- it was an absolute necessity. Yaal’s guidance and extensive professional advice throughout this project were totally invaluable.

Betty Herman: Who is Yaal’s wife, and one of my most loyal and enthusiastic readers. If Betty wasn’t a fan, then I doubt that Yaal would have nudged Josh to nudge me. (This is starting to sound like Had Gadya, but it’s really true!)

Miriam, Deena, Eliana, and Naama at Illuminea: Who designed this clean, user-friendly new site and who were always a true pleasure to work. A rare combination of genuine friendliness and professional excellence.

Sheva Chaya Shaiman and Shoshana Motzen: Who, with a lot of patience and a ton of talent, created the artwork for this gorgeous new banner.  I LOVE IT!

You JewishMOMS!: Who enable me week after week to fulfill my personal life’s mission that is taped at eye-level onto my computer lest I should ever forget “My Mission: To inspire Jewish mothers with creative projects that inspire me.”

And lastly: Hashem: Who over the course of the past decade has guided me and helped me to become an inspired mom who can inspire other moms, spreading across the globe and cyberspace “Inspiration from Jewish Mother to Another.”
