  1. Behrman House Celebrates 100 Years

    What does a one-hundred-year-old Jewish publishing firm do to celebrate a big birthday? It publishes a book!

    Behrman House: A Century of Jewish Publishing (Behrman House, 2021), described as both classy and quirky, tells the story of three generations of Behrman family ownership that began in New York City in 1921 and continued uninterrupted through ten decades, creating books that “set an esthetic standard other publishers had to meet.” [1]

    In that time, the firm that began as a modest Judaica bookshop on Manhattan’s lower Fifth Avenue selling prayerbooks and ritual objects grew into a trade publisher and the leading creator of Jewish educational materials, one that has counted among its customers most of the Reform, Conservative, and Reconstructionist synag

    Esther Didn't Dream of Being Queen

    By Allison Ofanansky, Illustrated by Valentina Belloni

     

    Once upon a time, in a kingdom far, far away, I was an orphan girl who became queen.

    No, I'm not Cinderella. My name is Esther, and my story is not a fairy tale.

    It's a Meshuggah World. Might as Well Play With Your Food.

    It's a meshuggah* world, so we might as well have some fun.

    And, really, who doesn't like to play with their food?

    Nothing is more Jewish than a plate full of food. In these stressful times, we can find comfort in food - in a low calorie way. 

    Created by Bill and Claire Wurtzel, Meshuggah Food Faces brings us an irreverent table full of funny faces to make us smile and find moments of inspiration in the simplest of places. 

    Bill is an artist and jazz musician, so improvisation, even with food, comes naturally to him. He began making food art to amuse his wife when they were married in 1961. Claire is a longtime educator, and together they conduct workshops using the food art as a jumping off point for learning about nutrition.

    Whether for a friend, family member, or yourself, we all deserve the gift of
