Frugal food shopping for the Anglo Israeli

What’s happening Sukkot 2013

It’s never too early to start thinking about the holidays.  If you haven’t done it yet, start preparing food for the freezer, make menu and guest lists, and figure out WHAT TO DO WITH THOSE KIDS OVER THE LONG VACATION!!!

Don’t forget the reason they are starting school early- they will be off from Friday, September 13 through Shabbat, September 28!

Fortunately, there are lots of Sukkot events for the whole family to enjoy.
