So who are you guys?
Hey there! We're willing to bet that we have much in common with you. We're a just a family, always looking to be more intentional in the ways in which we teach our children - and in this specific instance, the way they connect with the weekly parsha or Torah portion. If you're looking for us to get more specific than that, no worries. Just scroll on down to find out more.
Rabbi Dr. Josh Wise
Rabbi Josh is first and foremost, an abba to his small tribe of kids. During the day, though, he is the middle school assistant principal for general studies at a huge yeshiva day school in Brooklyn, NY. He's a total math-guy, happy to answer any math-related questions you might have, and who finds great pleasure in learning new magical formulas in Excel. He layns like a boss, will never ever turn down an offer of Chinese food, and can often be found at 4:30am running on the treadmill in preparation for a 5K that he has not yet signed up for, but thinks about semi-often.
Jen is a freelance writer, editor and designer, who spends more hours a day in her minivan than she can publicly admit. The best job she ever had - besides for mommy - was art teacher, followed closely by cake decorator and camp counselor. She's pretty much figured out how to make a good loaf of sourdough bread, she half-heartedly goes walking almost every day(ish), and she's finally learning to use her sewing machine after it has sat on a shelf for way too long. Her next new skills will hopefully be knitting and possibly some guitar playing. You can find her sporadically blogging at thecrumbfactory.weebly.com.
