You’ll get the chance to create your own ready-to-bake-challah, get tips from a professional chef, and engage in the priceless opportunity to partake in the mitzvah of challah.

Here’s a sneak peek at our challah presenter and noted food blogger, Chani Apfelbaum, AKA Busy in Brooklyn!

How did you get started as a food blogger?

I’m a very creative person by nature. I’ve always loved to host and create a beautiful presentation at each meal; that’s how my love for food developed. Until the birth of my third child, I worked in web design. Eventually, I stopped working outside my home and began looking for another creative outlet.

My husband, who is in marketing, suggested that I start a food blog; he came up with the name, and the rest is history! In the beginning, I featured foods I grew up with or my adaptations from other cookbooks, but these days I compose my own recipes. My blog has been running for six years now.

What is your most requested recipe?

I’d say my hassleback salami. It’s a staple in many Jewish households today. The funny thing about that is that the food that terrorized me most as a child was salami! When I was growing up, my mom used to serve us salami sandwiches every Friday. Unbeknownst to her, my siblings and I would sneak outside and chuck them into the incinerator one after another. Then, when I was a newlywed, my husband introduced me to fried salami. I learned that when you heat salami, all that congealed fat melts and it becomes crispy and delicious. Salami is a traditional Purim food (it’s hung like Haman), and I feature it in my Purim recipes each year.

One year, I came up with the hassleback recipe and it was an instant hit.

What are your top three challah tips?

1 – The more you knead your dough and work the gluten, the more elastic it will be, yielding a fluffier challah. I like to knead my dough for at least ten minutes.

2 – To ensure a good rise, feed your yeast with sugar to activate it before you add any other ingredients.

3 – Streamline the process – and minimize the mess – as much as possible. One way to do that is by placing a plastic tablecloth over your work surface. That way, if flour flies everywhere, you’re not stuck cleaning it out of every crevice. Instead, you can just roll up the plastic and throw it out.

Do you ever do anything interesting with your challah dough?

Sometimes, I stuff my challah with marzipan. We call it “rainbow cookie challah” because it tastes like three-layer rainbow cookies.

Join us at the JCCMP Mother-Daughter Challah Bake for more tips and new ways to use your challah dough!

Student Spotlight: Nina Lichenstein | Stonecoast Review


What do you write?

I have an academic publishing background, but recently decided to take a creative turn, because academic lingo felt too conforming, distant, and pretentious. Since I had dabbled in personal essays for a while (a column about being an ex-pat, a blog, etc) it was the “natural” place to start this creative journey.

I have a couple of memoir-type projects in the works, but a novel has also been brewing in me for several years (read: I’m obsessed). Since I have little experience writing fiction, I have a few short stories in various stages that I keep returning to, when I feel brave, to warm me up for the big dive of tackling the novel.     

Is there an author or artist who has most profoundly influenced your work?

My answer to this might seem diffuse, but my literary influences are too heterogeneous both in languages, cultures, generations, and genres that I can’t isolate one, or even a few. I will say that I have felt profoundly influenced by the writing, language, and ideas of Norwegian, French, English, and Israeli authors, and that without these influences I would not be who I am or write (or strive to write) the way I do today. I will admit that I am all over the place, in more ways than one.

Why did you choose Stonecoast?

See last answer! But all kidding aside, it was the fact that Stonecoast encourages what I call trans-genre exploration and interests, that is what really spoke to me. Also, I had heard exceptionally great things about the program, and it didn’t hurt that I had just moved to Maine…  

What is your favorite Stonecoast memory?

Haha, even this is kind of fluid: Since I am a first semester student, and have only attended one residency so far, I expect I am just at the beginning of building and collecting favorite Stonecoast memories. But I will say that the feeling I had during the summer residency was that I had landed in a really special tribe of amazing and eclectic minds that I felt privileged to be counted among. And that feeling is a fond memory.   

What do you hope to accomplish in the future?

A Norwegian author I admire, Jon Michlet, recently passed away from cancer at 73. On his deathbed, full of morphine, he finished his 48th book, and it was his best one. I hope to continue developing and engaging as a writer until the end; to be disciplined enough to finish the books and stories I have in me, and to make a difference in the writing lives of a few students.  

If you could have written one book, story, or poem that already exists, which would you choose?

You’re killing me with the choices…But, I found The Story of a Brief Marriage by Anuk Arudpragasam, to be like a perfect, tiny, gem, on so many levels; I would love to have been able to write something like that.

Featured Work

A Little Man Named Leo

The following is a work of fiction exclusively for Stonecoast Review.

“I can still give pleasure, you know,” the barely 5’ tall Holocaust survivor told Nora, in his thick Polish accent. His eyes beamed at her, his chin held high as if to give the impression of a certain stature, after all. “I know how to make a woman happy, even if I am not as virile as I used to be in my youth.” An 85-year old widower on dialysis, Leo lived in a small efficiency apartment in Federation Square, a housing complex for the elderly Jewish population in their community. Nora paid him a visit now and then, after her teenage son had interviewed him for an essay project, matching survivors with teens. So we will never forget. In Leo’s over-heated living room, faded black and white photos of his family lined the walls, all of who perished in the camps—his mother, father, brothers and sisters. His grandparents were killed too, as were his aunts and uncles. A photo of the Polish woman who saved him hung next to theirs.

Leo was an enchanting man with his gentle manners and positive outlook on life, despite the brutality he had experienced as a child during the war. He was sociable and loved to shower his women friends with chocolates and flowers, even if it wasn’t Valentine’s Day. Now his rosy cheeks were full and warm, and his blue eyes sparkled with anticipation, as he crossed his arms, resting them on his distended belly under high-waisted blue sweatpants layered over a loose-fitting gray sweatshirt. He looked like a little happy gnome, she thought, his bald, round head encircled by a monk-like tonsure of short, gray hair. He always smelled clean, a mixture of baby powder and Old Spice. “I am sure you can,” Nora answered with a smile, not wanting to diminish her octogenarian suitor’s desire although she did not want to encourage his advance either. She thought he was brave, and decided not to change the topic, despite feeling awkward. She was in her mid-40’s and just divorced, and Leo knew to seize an opportunity when it presented itself. An indefatigable optimist, he had escaped the Nazis at age eleven by jumping out of the cattle car transporting his family and their entire village to their deaths, and then he spent two years hiding under the basement stairs of his Polish neighbor’s house—a righteous gentile—who brought him scraps when no-one was looking, under the guise of feeding her rabbits. When the war ended, he had trouble standing up straight after hiding on a bed of moist hay, camouflaged by a stack of empty crates; his body full of flea-bites and his hair scraggly and knotted and infested with lice. He was thirteen in 1945.

Now, Nora and Leo shared a stuffed tuna Subway grinder, seated facing each other at his kitchen table covered with a plastic table cloth; a large blue log-book and a long, pink, plastic pill organizer sat in a corner. He had once shown her how he kept track of everything in that log: the dates, times and consistencies of his bowel movements, as well as his daily weight AM and PM, his diet, and his medications. The payment amounts for his personal assistants were also recorded there—everything had its place, information about the minutia of his daily routines available at his fingertips. Today, Leo told Nora that the indulgence of a little added cheese on his sandwich already felt like he was pushing his luck. He knew that restraint and order helped him survive. “You know, I’m seeing someone,” she said between bites. “I am flattered by your proposition, though.” With a coy smile he answered, “Just remember I’m here if you change your mind.”

The last time she saw him was a beautiful but chilly day in the fall. She picked him up from his home where he was standing outside with his walker. He was always ready early, never wanting to keep anyone waiting. Bundled in a warm and over sized fall jacket, a checkered woolen scarf neatly tied around his neck, his army green cap had ear-flaps covering his round cheeks. Nora helped him into the car, and when she stretched the seat-belt across his front, she noticed he was freshly shaved for the occasion. She folded up his walker and put in in the trunk. Then she brought him to the park nearby, where they sat side by side on wobbly, sun-bleached Adirondack chairs, bundled in the wool blankets she had brought along. Under the blue, cloudless sky, they shared a tuna grinder—without cheese —while ducks and swans and Canada geese glided quietly on the pond, and colorful leaves rustled in the tall, majestic trees. “This is nice,” he said. “In the spring I want to take you and your son out to Chinese!” “That would be great,” she answered. “We will look forward to that.

But Leo didn’t make it through that winter, because his kidneys stopped functioning, and his heart was too weak to support his slight but declining body with its massive memory. The night before he died, he called Nora from his hospital bed. Holding his little black book with all the phone numbers to his friends, young and old, he made the rounds to say goodbye. “I love you,” he said. “I love you too, Leo,” she answered.

Nina is a native of Oslo, Norway, and blogs under the name of The Viking Jewess. She is the mother of three grown sons who recently flew the nest in CT, which allowed her to migrate north to Maine. She has a background in teaching languages and literature, enjoys live storytelling, and dreams of starting/joining an impov group. When she isn’t writing and busy hosting at her AirBnB, she tries to find her zen doing yoga, and volunteers as an editor for The Telling Room’s online Stories page. Nina’s writing has appeared in The Washington Post, Brevity, Literary Mama, and Lilith, among other places. She is a first semester student at Stonecoast.

Outdoor PATRIOTIC Tassel Garland – The Scrap Shoppe

This outdoor PATRIOTIC tassel garland costs less than $5 to make!

I do love a good patriotic project, but this one is stealing my frugal heart!

At a mere $4 to create, this may be one of my new favorite crafts.

Allow me to introduce you to my new Outdoor Patriotic Tassel Garland!!

Making garland and buntings are a favorite pastime of mine, but I only have so many places to put them.

Inside, that is!

Now that I have an outdoor option I may hang them from every tree in my yard!

For this project you need 3 plastic rectangular tablecloths in each red, white, and blue as well as a clothesline.

You can find all of these items at the Dollar Store!

Or, if you don’t have one of those nearby, you can find them for a little bit more online (affiliate link).

Cut the tablecloths into 1 inch strips.

To do this easily:

1) Pull the tablecloths directly out of the plastic casing and lay it on a flat surface.

2) Unfold it one time to the right then begin cutting the strips. When you pull open the strip, the length will be the width of the tablecloth.

3) Continue to unfold to the right as you go.

Once you have cut all 3 tablecloths into strips, gather the ends of 1 each of a red, white, and a blue strip in your fingers.

Repeat so that you have 6 strips total in your fingers.

Fold the length of the strips in half.

Make a knot where the strips are folded in half so that a 1-inch loop remains.

Continue these steps until you run out of strips.

You should end up with approximately 45 tassels.

Thread the tassels onto the clothesline.

Tie the clothesline wherever you intend to hang your garland.

Since the tassels are made of plastic they should hold up outside for quite a while.

The strands rustle in the breeze.

It’s just dreamy!

While you can surely make these in any color scheme, I do love the red, white, and blue for summer!

They would be fun to coordinate for any outdoor party though.

Think birthdays, weddings, graduations, and more!

If you leave the garland outside all summer, it will probably be ready to trash by the end of summer.

But then you’re only out the $3 for the cost of the tablecloths.

And you can easily make another one for the next summer!

I hung my outdoor patriotic tassel garland over our hammock.

The tassels rustling in the breeze while you swing on the hammock is super relaxing!

Where would you hang your tassel garland outdoors??


>> See where I party! <<

Stepping Into The Zoom Spotlight: My Summer Experience Working At A Virtual Performing Arts Camp

By Elisheva Hirsch

This summer I had planned on being in the Poconos organizing night activities, helping counselors and leading cheers as a head counselor at NCSY Camp Maor, a performing arts overnight camp for girls. I have been a camper and counselor there the past three years and was looking forward to taking on this leadership position. But when the world turned upside down, it became clear that, in the interest of everyone’s safety, we would not be engaging in the usual on-campus activities this summer. Instead, founder and director Sari Kahn and assistant director Rena Rubin decided to create a virtual Maor experience called [email protected] We worked together with other staff members to convert and adapt the traditional Maor program to the digital space. I welcomed July by covering my bedroom wall with a plastic tablecloth co-opted as a green screen and Amazon Priming some cute blue light glasses — unsure of what to expect but excited to begin.

[email protected] garnered 45 campers (occupying a total of four bunks) from 25 cities across the United States and Canada. We sent each camper a “Maor box” that included a camp t-shirt, mask, green screen and other supplies they would need. Campers picked between concentrations of acting, singing and dancing, each of which culminated in a final performance. They also chose from a selection of master classes on art, dance, singing and acting which focused on improving skill and technique. Maor’s talented professional staff instructors (choreographer Rhonda Malkin is a former Rockette, play director Rachel Klein is an off-Broadway director — the list goes on) utilized the digital experience as an opportunity to explore new creative spaces with the girls. In addition to being a head counselor, I was the stage manager for the younger campers’ play; my excitement and awe grew daily as I watched our original Zoom play — a spaceship mystery which features the crew members communicating via video — develop into an incredible production. The schedule also included daily bunk time, shiur (Jewish studies learning), and other activities I helped create and run: electives, night activity, chessed, and other special programs. Our goals when planning were to reshape some classic Maor activities for Zoom usage and also take advantage of the opportunity to do things we couldn’t otherwise do at an in-person camp. Some of my favorite memories from camp were the guest workshops from Broadway actors and actresses; our partnership with a Brooklyn public school our assistant director teaches at for a social justice dance program; and writing, filming, and acting in a Murder Mystery night activity.

I am so grateful that I had the opportunity to participate in [email protected] this summer. The performing arts have a unique power to uplift spirits and connect us with each other and ourselves; in Maor, they bring a diverse group of Jewish girls together, creating an energy and atmosphere that is truly indescribable. I learned this summer that this holds true even across state lines and time zones, when new campers fit right in with the old. Although pulling off such an extensive and unprecedented program on such a short notice was hard and stressful at times, it was all well worth the effort seeing the joy it brought so many girls who really needed it during this difficult time, myself included. And hey — if you ever need someone to run a Zoom garbage bag dress fashion show, you know whom to call.
