I read a lot of blogs, many of them written by fellow Jewish mommies, so I wanted to create a carnival of some great articles, so other people can enjoy their wise words of wisdom. When I was ending primary school back when dinosaurs roamed the earth, we sang My Yiddishe Mama as part of our end of year show. I wanted to kick off the party with a quote from that song “Oh I know that I owe what I am today; To that dear little lady so old and gray; To that wonderful Yiddishe Mama, Mama of mine.”
Love ‘em or get guilted by ‘em, us Jewish folks all have or had one, and we owe them so much.
(I would like to dedicate this first edition to my own mother who sacrificed so much to bring us up, and if I say so myself, she did a darn fine job)
This is my own post about watching my son practicing laying tefillin before his barmitzvah.
This carnival is not a huge one but quality always wins out over quantity, but I am hoping that in the future there will be many more quality submissions. Please go here to submit an article for the next Yiddishe Mama Carnival.
