When I’m planning for an event I’m hosting–whether it’s a holiday celebration or a meal with friends–it only starts to come together for me once I’ve connected to the inspiration behind it.
How do you keep track of Jewish holiday dates for the year?
For me, I used to look at certain Jewish websites. (You know the ones.) The thing is, I never felt connected to the imagery presented around each holiday, nor did I feel inspired.
So I created the Jewish holiday calendar I’ve always wanted.
This is part four in a four-part series for the Jewish Food Hero blog on self-care while traveling. (If you’re just joining us, you may read the other posts in the series here: physical self-care, self-care with children, and mental self-care.)

Yael Schuster is a chemist, runner, mother, and entrepreneur who wants to inspire you to see the beauty of science in every aspect of your life.

Yael is giving away a copy of her book to one lucky reader, so be sure to read the giveaway details at the end of the post. Let’s get to know Yael and learn from her.

Today I’m excited to share the new Jewish Food Hero tagline, and tell you more about what it means for you.
Penny Blumenstein is a renowned international philanthropic and Jewish leader. She’s the president of the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee (JDC), Vice Chair of the Community Foundation of Southeastern Michigan, and a recipient of the George Romney Award for Lifetime Achievement in Volunteerism.
I’ve long admired Penny’s commitment to service and the important work she does with JDC. I’m so honored to have such an inspiring leader share her thoughts with us. Let’s get to know Penny and learn from her.

In today’s post, we’ll be talking about self-care while traveling with children. I’ll be offering some tips for both taking care of yourself and your children’s well-being.
One of the things I’ve discovered is that our self-care habits tend to take a back seat to other priorities when we’re traveling or in a new environment.
In fact, it’s when you’re taken out of your routine that you need self-care more than ever.
