The 40 Year Old Bat Mitzvah


Posted in Uncategorized by Juliet on October 20, 2010

It’s back! Fundraising is in full swing not only at regular school, but at Hebrew school, sports, Girl Scouts, and other activities.

Longtime readers may remember my frustration with “Makes a Great Gift!” fundraising catalogues stuffed with cookie dough and costume jewelry.

This year, Eva’s elementary school switched to a different catalogue. They also added something new, which I love: cash donations count as one item per $10 given. I’d rather write a check, get an income tax deduction, and know that the school gets 100% of the donation.

This new catalogue doesn’t have “the black page” but they do have “the latino page”:

The “Jewish page” is actually a half-page and is adjacent to the madrecita zone.

The choices are either Chanukkah wrapping paper or a decorative tin (dreidels) with sugar cookie mix. I decided to play ball this year and ordered the tin.

How are the cookies? I’ll let you know in 6-8 weeks.
