What others have said about The JewishMom.com Blog and weekly newsletter:
My dear and beloved Chana,
I admire you so much. I admire how you connect motherhood with faith, and your sense of humor, and your Yirat Shamayim, but more than anything else, I admire how you understand that Jewish women are God’s princesses, and that our children are the means through which we express that royalty…Hashem is so proud of you, and so am I.
With much love,
Rabbanit Yemima Mizrachi
“I am now officially ‘addicted’ to this blog. It is the only regular email I receive (and I receive many) that I always read cover to cover…Chana Jenny, you humbly allow yourself to learn and grow, and you take your viewers/readers along with you on that journey.”
–Rishe Deitsch, Editor of the N’shei Chabad Newsletter
Dear Chana, I feel like almost EVERY SINGLE video peptalk you give is about EXACTLY the thing that was bothering me as a mother that week. What I love about your blog is that you are just SUCH A MOM! You have the exact same problems as me.
–Neta, Mother of 3, Ramat Beit Shemesh, Israel
Dear Chana, I love your stuff! I love your postings so much that I often forward them to the mommies of the Montessori nursery school running out of 2 log cabins in my back yard.
–Naomi, Nursery School Principal, Johannesberg, South Africa
Dear Chana, Your blog reminds me that I am a member of a blessed, wonderful, world-wide community of really, really brave Jewish mothers.
–Yikrat, Mother of 7, Jerusalem, Israel
Dear Chana, When I get angry at my eldest daughter, I tend to ‘lose it’ with her. You taught me how to stop at the start of my ‘rant.’
Lianne, Mother of 2, New York, NY, USA
Dear Chana, I love your blog! It has strengthened my relationship with my toddler and with my husband. It has also strengthened my faith so much and teaches me to believe in myself. Words cannot express the gratitude I feel towards you!
Love, Sara, Mother of 1, Toronto, Canada
I love reading your newsletter because you talk about real issues in a real way. This blog is tremendously inspirational.
Sharona, Mother of 6, Jerusalem, Israel
Your weekly posts are often the only thing I look forward to reading via email. Your newsletters certainly cheer me up on a horrible day after coping with work and caring for a baby. Although we don’t know each other, I spout your advice and stories like I’m quoting a friend. Thank you for being there for me,
Liba, Mother of 1, West Hartford, CT, USA
Dear Chana, I have been faithfully following your blog and inhaling your mommy peptalks since I found the blog about a month or so ago. You are fantastic.”
