Recently at my son’s birthday party, my mother asked for help purchasing a veil for her upcoming wedding. I instinctively turned to Amazon and found a simple, elegant one for under $15. “Make…sure it’s two tiers,” my mom reminded me, “so that the groom can place the veil over my face.” My mother is getting married. She entered widowhood 11 years ago when my beloved father died suddenly and tragically at the age of 55. His death was a shock to our system. In many ways, it… >> Read More
Dads are reputed have the best, and corniest, jokes (why "dad jokes" are a thing). One dad totally took this meme to another level on his Instagram--which you can see below.

Adam Sandler is a favorite of those of us who lived through his glory days on SNL and in films like "Happy Gilmore."

It's Father's Day this Sunday, which means it's time to make some plans if you haven't already. Regardless of whether you make big or small plans, it's always fun to watch a movie together as a…family--or even as a couple without the kids. Some of these, of course, are not appropriate for young kids, but OK for teens. I rounded up some of my favorite films with Jewish characters, actors, and themes that you can stream on Netflix. Check them out below: 1. "Anger Management" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=79uuJdcC8wQ I mean, who doesn't… >> Read More
Now that everyone has a smartphone of some kind, it's become insanely easy to record special moments. This is a game changer for parents, because instead of having to get a big, bulky expensive…camera, parents can take videos of their kids whenever they want--and have them to watch forever, basically. One dad made use of this--recording his daughter on her first day of school every year. Kevin Scruggs would often ask his daughter, Mackenzie, questions like what she was looking forward to or what the best part of… >> Read More
