Praise for Hanukkah Bingo Game & Hanukkah Boxes

I bought this as a Hanukkah gift for my best friend, who is on the path to conversion. After 10 years of gift exchanges, it was the first time I received an immediate and exuberant phone call. “This is one of the best gifts I’ve ever received,” she gushed. She said the kit was high quality and provided a fun framework for her to build tradition and celebrate the holiday with her 2-yr-old daughter.The Hanukkah Family Fun Kit is a great way to build and reinforce family traditions that all ages can participate in, understand and enjoy. If you’re one of those thoughtful gift-givers who tries to give the best gift possible, I highly recommend gifting this to your Jewish loved ones. It might even earn kudos as the “best gift ever.” – Terrence H.

When I opened my Hanukkah Family Fun Kit, I breathed a gigantic sigh of relief. My daughter’s party was planned for me. – Anne,  mother of 4-year-old

Praise for Celebrate Passover: How to Plan a Fun, Simple Seder

Ellen Zimmerman’s guide ‘Celebrate Passover’ removes the angst of hosting a Passover Seder and replaces it with warm encouragement, smart tips and easy to share educational tidbits. She did it again. Just like her Chanukah guide, she managed to give me confidence to host a Seder that focuses on enjoying being with family and creating memories.  — Mom of 5-year-old

Thanks! LOVE it! I think it’s great!!! – Janet

We loved the Family Discussion Guide! The questions got the kids and me talking about where all their cousins were for Seders and what different people do. Plus, it built anticipation and enthusiasm for our Seder. So helpful! – Mom of 7-year-old

It’s lovely!  The pictures, the organization, the stories, the ‘look’ are ALL fabulous!! – Buyer who bought the guide as a gift for a friend

 

Praise for Celebrate Hanukkah: How to Light Up Your Holiday  

This is a great guide! I love the pictures you used. The book looks so clean and easy to follow.  I love how you broke it up. I love that you give recipes and suggestions for where to find music. I NEVER remember which side to put the candles in and where to start lighting! Your book is a lifesaver!!” — Sarah Barrett, author of A Mom’s Guide to School Fundraising

I just got finished reading through the Hanukkah guide and LOVED it! I found it very straightforward and easy to read. I particularly like the step-by-step approach.

‘Celebrate Hanukkah’ is a great walk-through of the holiday, especially good for families with young children.

I’m a Christian, but I believe that we should understand Jewish celebrations. Your Hanukkah e-guide helped explain things I had wondered, like what candles had to do with the oil, and how latkes came into play. Very cool!” — Amanda Sue Howell, mom of 4
