Leah, Yocheved, Ephie and Yael!!!, Donna, Elise, Lisa, Dina, Esti, Hilda, Iris, Jason and Wifey!!! (so sorry forgot your first name), Jill, Judy, Lori, Malki and Malkie, Nancy, Miriam, Rachael, Sharon, Susan, Zessie and everyone else whose name I haven’t mentioned – THANK YOU!!! You all made Monday night the most special and amazing evening of my professional life. Meeting, talking, hugging (lol – you know me, I can NOT help myself!), and laughing with each and every one of you was utterly amazing. I am so touched that you snatched up tickets within hours of our party announcement – so totally cool!!! I am all teary at the thought of it, seriously. I really love you all so much. From Philly, to all parts of Jersey, to Jericho and 5-towns, and Queens and BK and more you came! Did I say I love you all yet?!?!?

We are planning a new and exciting event soon. Until then enjoy these pretty pictures (you are all so beautiful – I am kvelling!).

The Joy of Kosher team celebrating together (Melinda Strauss, Tamar Genger, Jamie Geller, Shifra Klein, Shlomo Klein).

Lots of book signing.  Thank goodness for the Mike and Ike candies near by to keep me going.

Some younger fans enjoying my Pretzel Crusted Chicken.

Stacey Bender my amazing PR manager.

Everyone at the party walked home with a bag filled with goodies.  Not only did they get a copy of the NEW Joy of Kosher (did you get yours yet? Order it now!!)  They also got Mike and Ike Candies, Goldenberg’s Peanut Chews, French’s Mustard, French’s Flavor InfuserKind Bars, Gefen Whole Roasted and Peeled Chestnuts, Gefen Wonder Melts and Joy of Kosher Magazine.

Meet and greet.

  11. I just want to say THANK YOU, I just started following a liberalized Kashrut diet, I’m just starting on my journey to converting, and I’ve been dying for quick, easy recipes that follow kosher cooking. I’m a flight attendant in the USA and I bring food with me while I’m working and not only do I need healthy foods but I need food that meet my new religious ideology. You have recipes that I love to cook like Coq au vin, and Chicken Tacos. I know they’re from a few years ago but I just found them on YouTube. So thank you again I’m in love with your cookbooks and videos

    • WOW – how amazing — I wish you the BEST of luck and success on your journey. I am so happy you found us. Please keep in touch and let us know how all is progressing and how you are enJOYing the yummy food.
