After three friends independently post comments about Passover on Facebook — and it's not even Purim yet — a reader wonders if she's behind the times because she hasn't started cleaning yet. Why the rush to move on to the next holiday?
Should you make baggies of mishloach manot to be part of this Purim gift exchange even if your heart's not in it? Or is there some kind of alternative to seem involved in the holiday without giving people snacks they probably don't want?
Ask Miriam Steinberg-Egeth, a local mom and involved member of Philadelphia's Jewish community. Wondering what's an appropriate gift for a Bar Mitzvah? How to deal with an annoying friend/parent/relative? How to find your soulmate? From dating to parenting, Miriam welcomes any and all questions. Email yours to email@example.com and put "Advice Well question" in the subject line. More from this author
