It's called Modern, Classic & Jewish
While going through my conversion to Judaism, I jumped right in and began hosting holiday celebrations at our house. I blogged about some of them here and here and here. In doing so, I came across a problem: a lack of great, classy, simple, modern housewares for Jewish homes. Don't get me wrong, there are websites out there filled with judaica in every incarnation...but the vast, vast majority of it would not fit in my home.
Every time I wanted to find something to purchase for our home-- like a passover seder plate, hanukkah candles, or a hanukkah card-- I spent hours combing through endless options that were never quite right. It was frustrating. I wanted a blog that would narrow down the options and highlight jewish housewares and decor that fit a more modern style. One that would be more at home in Martha Stewart Living than your grandmother's house. I felt compelled to make one myself.

I have posted twice so far, but I'm still in the early stages of getting it going. I know that all of you who read this blog are not Jewish and will not be that interested in the new blog, and that's okay. But, I hope that you will still check in here for sporadic personal posts and updates and that you will share my new blog with your jewish friends.
Thank you! And happy friday!
