I'm a mother of six and a breastfeeding counselor. I also write and maintain two websites:
At A Mother in Israel I write social commentary on parenting, Judaism, and life in Israel.
At Cooking Manager, I share tips on kosher, easy, healthy and frugal home cooking. CookingManager.Com also has a Facebook page with updates and discussions on home cooking.

All three sites have active communities. I hope you will check them out and leave a comment!

I also am active in the Israeli blogging community and helped run two well-attended events for bloggers.
