Women's View, Edition 25

Welcome to our February issue, the first of 2014.  Whatever the weather be it sunshine or frost, the wind blowing us away or gales lashing at our windows, this month’s issue with its wide range of subjects is certain to brighten your day.  Whether you are interested in Limmud, how to make your own, personalised challah cover, or you want a new recipe, Women’s View is sure to have something of interest for all our readers.  Remember, all our articles can be downloaded and printed off so that they can also be enjoyed on Shabbat afternoon when you may have a little more time to spare than during a hectic week.

Women's View, edition 24

Have you heard of the festival of ‘Thanksgivukah’?  Apparently it occurs extremely rarely, which makes this year very special.  For those who have not yet heard of the festival the explanation is that as Chanukah occurred earlier than is usual this year (November instead of December), the first day fell on the same day as Thanksgiving Day in America.  Therefore the American Jewish population had occasion to relive and celebrate two important events – one religious and one historical – the two together forming ‘Thanksgivukah’.

Its that time of the year again when the sky is lit up with fireworks and adults can relive their childhood joy as the multitude of colours explode in the night sky.  

Women's View, edition 22

Welcome back to Women’s View after a long summer break. With the children and grandchildren back at school (or perhaps at university) we return to full weeks when school runs and/or the travel to and from work can be troublesome and tiring and work may appear routine and lacking in interest.  If that is the case, why not take a few minutes to peruse our October issue with its variety of articles to interest and amuse, and an Events Diary with a range of events to suit everybody.

Editorial, edition 21

A sure-fire way to break the ice is to talk about the weather – it’s too hot/cold, too dry/wet, to windy/stuffy – and very rarely is everybody happy.  Right now we are in the middle of a heatwave and it’s a delight to see the bright coloured sundresses and shorts.  Schools will soon close for the long summer holiday and families plan to spend time together either in this country or abroad.
