What 's Nu?*

The Glossary of Jewish Terminology is constantly updated to reflect every Jewish term used in this site.

The Current Calendar is updated regularly, and contains calendars for the current three months.

October 2, 2016
I've finally added a long-overdue page on Trop (Cantillation): Chanting Hebrew Scripture! This page doesn't teach you how to chant it, but it explains what it's all about and has links to places where you can learn it.
November 1, 2015
I've finished updating the entire site to the new format.

While going through it, I updated some of the links, and made some minor updates to the Genealogy page.
September 20, 2015
I've added some new links to some excellent prayer audio on the Chanukkah Blessings page and the discussion of Birkat Ha-Mazon. The links I originally had stopped working a few years ago, and this audio from SiddurAudio.com is much more appropriate anyway.

I have also updated the format on all the pages in the Times section.
September 13, 2015
I've started to make some changes to the format of the pages, making the text narrower so it's easier to read on the wider monitors that are now commonplace. So far, I have only gotten the Words and Deeds sections, but the rest will be coming soon!

While I was updating those pages, I also cleaned up some of the outdated links on them, particularly on the Yiddish page.
March 1, 2015
Just in time for Purim, I have posted an improved hamentaschen recipe. I've been tinkering with my recipe for several years, and have finally locked down the changes, creating something that tastes just as good but is easier to measure, easier to roll, and less prone to pop open while cooking.

I have also updated the discussion of Passover food to reflect the increased acceptance of quinoa as a kosher-for-Passover food option.

Finally, I updated all of the lists of dates on all of the holiday pages, and have cleaned up all outdated links on all pages.

*For those who don't get the pun: "nu" is a Yiddish word equivalent to English words like "so?" or "well?," and can be used all by itself to mean "What's new?"
