Shabbat Shalom! ~ Contest: Win A Pair of Earrings ~ Happy 4th Night of Hanukkah!15th December 2018


Have a wonderful weekend celebrating family, friends, and the 4th, 5th, and 6th nights of Hanukkah!

Shabbat Shalom


Win this beautiful pair of earrings by Darrel’s Designs. They were custom made for Jewish Gift Place. I was at the Philadelphia Buyer’s Market of American Craft and I admired Darrel’s jewelry but only saw one or two pieces with a Jewish star on it. He said that he could put a Jewish star on anything, so I picked the pieces I liked and he made them for me!

A random winner will be chosen next Wed., 12/20/17. Just reply to this email and answer this question:

How are you celebrating Hanukkah this year?



In next Wednesday’s newsletter, I will be sharing my discussion with Demond Johnson. He participated in the mezuzah contest a few weeks ago which asked, “Let me know where you would hang it or who you would give it to.”

Demond JohnsonDemond responded, “The Mezuzah truly is a beautiful piece! If in fact I did end up winning this amazing gift, as much as I would love to hang it above my home door, I would bless my beloved mother with it and allow her to display its beauty in her home!”

All of the responses I received were incredibly touching (congrats Weslee for winning it!) but something compelled me to learn more about Demond. I followed the link to his website, where I learned that he was the President/CEO of A2 Fitness Professionals in Ann Arbor, MI, that he served in the army for 20+ years, he worked with contestants of NBC’s The Biggest Loser, and that he is on the board and participates in many wonderful organizations and causes. I was curious to learn more about his Jewish upbringing. Check back on Wednesday to watch the interview!


I hope you are enjoying the 3rd day of Hanukkah! Have a wonderful weekend!

Light, Peace, and Love,
