I love this time of year. Any excuse to celebrate with the family makes me very happy. Ally is home from Spring break and heard from 2 more colleges. She got accepted to both and even received a merit scholarship from one. A few more to go and then she will decide where she will spend the next 4 years.

We leave this week for Israel. It is our first trip. Bobby is staying home while the girls spend some mommy and me time together. I have a very full schedule planned. We have been watching The Ten Commandments since I can remember and now we will actually be there during that time in history. Do you think we will see the red sea part while we are there? ( ha ha). We have ONE book signing scheduled IN ISRAEL APRIL Thursday 8th at 6:30 PM Steimatzky Store, Dizengoff Street 109, Tel Aviv . We are looking for a book publisher in Israel to translate it into Hebrew..so if you know anyone.please email me at jill@jillzarin.com? I will try upload photos from my hotel at night. I am meeting Lisa , my sister, there. She will be doing her radio show www.lisawexler.com from Israel everyday. If you have any suggestions you can post them here.

If you have a favorite PASSOVER MEAL. please share with all of us. We put some of our favorites in “Secrets of a Jewish Mother”. I hope you have placed your preorder so you will be the first to read it! If you want an autographed postcard from Gloria, Lisa and me, email me your receipt from amazon to jill@jillzarin.com.
