Do a Mitzvah and You Could Win $100!

good-deed-giveaway

What better time of year is there to focus on doing mitzvos bein adam lechaveiro, good deeds between man and his friend, than during the three weeks and leading up to Tisha B’av?

Our sages teach us that the Bais HaMikdash, our holy Temple, was destroyed due to baseless hatred between Jews. Thus, these three weeks of mourning the destruction of the Bais HaMikdash are an excellent time to bridge the gap between fellow Jews by going out of your way to do good deeds for another person. Sometimes an action which only takes a minute or two of your time can make a person’s day.

Stop and think to yourself. What can you do to make someone else’s life better? How can you improve the life of your friend? What do you have to give that could be of service to another person? Everyone has something they can do or something they can give, that will help bring the Beis HaMikdash closer. So make your mitzvos a priority this week, and then come back and tell us about it.

While the reward you get for doing a mitzvah is definitely enough of an incentive, we want to hear about your good deeds so that it can inspire others to do more mitzvos as well. One of our readers will get an extra reward: a $100 eGift Card to ArtScroll.com!

They Won’t Be Bored This Summer: Kids Cooking Made Easy + Giveaway!

Scroll down to the end of the post for instructions on entering a giveaway for a free copy of Kids Cooking Made Easy!

This summer, keep your kids busy in an educational and fun way: introduce them to the kitchen!

kcmep

My mother always said that hungry children are cranky children. Bored, hungry, cranky…these are the less exciting aspects of having children on vacation for three months. But we have a solution: introduce the kids to the joys of cooking with Kids Cooking Made Easy!

There’s a great educational aspect to cooking and following a recipe. As explained by the authors, Leah Schapira and Victoria Dwek. “Kids Cooking Made Easy is a picky eater solution,” says Victoria Dwek. “Kids either become more open-minded when they see how something is prepared, or they learn to prepare their own favorites.” Aside from kitchen skills, learning to cook has hidden educational benefits. As Leah Schapira points out, “Children learn about math and fractions when following a recipe.” They also learn to read and follow instructions – all while having a good time!

Chock full of exciting summer recipes such as Teriyaki Beef Sticks, Peach and Mango Salad and Creamsicle Sorbet and fun crafts and edible activities such as Edible Sand Art and Homemade Button Candy, this book will be a delight for your children and a lifesaver (or at least sanity saver!) for you.

Click here to purchase Kids Cooking Made Easy.

Here’s a sample recipe for you and your kids to enjoy. Make sure to scroll past the recipe for a chance to win a copy of Kids Cooking Made Easy!
