Over here at Kveller we spend a lot of time talking about breastfeeding and how to make the perfect noodle kugel. Though it dawned on us that we haven't carved out that much space to talk about a…pretty important topic: God. So, in May we'll be rolling out a series of pieces all focused on that all important "God talk." That is, that conversation you're forced to have when your child asks, "Mama, what's God?" or when you decided it was time to let your child know what you believe. What we… >> Read More

Love (or anxiety, if you haven't figured out a gift yet) is in the air as Valentine's Day fast approaches this Thursday.

That's right, we want to know how you met your one and only. Whether through a matchmaker, Jdate, the bar scene or a chance encounter at the DMV… >> Read More
One thing we haven't talked a whole lot about on Kveller is the quintessential milestone of a young Jewish person's life: the bar/bat mitzvah. Alina just opened the floodgates with her post about…deciding to not throw her son a standard bar mitzvah. On the other side of the spectrum, Kveller's editorial assistant Molly just uncovered a number of pictures from her own bat mitzvah that are... how do we put this... absolutely amazing? And now we want to see some of your pictures. The good, the bad,… >> Read More
