2014 Parnassah Expo Looks to Shatter Records

Using the common phrase, “The sky is the limit,” may be a major understatement when it comes to the ambitions of the Parnassah Expo, brainchild of the Parnassah Network and its founder, Reb Duvi Honig.

Italian Holiday

No one will ever ask me for this piece of advice regarding a trip to Venice because this is not something that happens to normal people. Nevertheless, an unsolicited piece of advice: Do not fall into a Venetian Canal. If you swallow any of it you will need shots and if it’s Winter, you will be freezing.

Falling into the canal—in my one set of

Travel to Cadbury World Is Cocotastic—and Kosher

It’s easy to imagine that if the ancient Israelites had been familiar with the cocoa bean, God might have promised them a land flowing with milk and chocolate. He didn’t, but such a land does exist. In the English city of Birmingham, a 90-minute train ride from London, Cadbury—the company that popularized modern British milk chocolate—welcomes half a million

How Eddie’s Kosher Travel Became # 1

Discovering Korea

“What’s a nice Jewish girl from New York doing in a place where she can’t find a nice Jewish boy?” What was I doing there? I asked myself this numerous times throughout my six months studying abroad, especially after I realized I could no longer just pick up a burger from the local Glatt Kosher restaurants. Now that I’ve returned and can eat all of

Family Travels in Jerusalem

This summer our family was fortunate enough to take a trip to Israel and spend the majority of our time in Jerusalem. Before the trip, I consulted with friends who have traveled to Israel with kids and scoured the internet for recommendations of the best activities to do with children. Depending on what your goals are, you can craft your itinerary in any

Where is Gonen?

A reader asked: “I see on the maps that Gonen is well located, so why have I never heard of this community?” The answer is that, despite the government’s new “Israeli” name, everyone still refers to the neighborhood by its original name Katamon.

Katamon was established just before World War I. The neighborhood initially became home to Jews
