Being a Jewish housewife isn't all bagels and borscht.

There's a much deeper, sometimes darker, and often laugh-out-loud funny side to Jewish female life that's uncovered in The Secret Diary of a Jewish Housewife.

This is a book for spiritual seekers, original thinkers, and all those women who also grapple with life's big questions, like:

Why did God make teenagers?How can I be happy and productive, when life is so stressful?Why does my husband think his comments are amusing?What does it take to be a 'good enough' Jewish mother?Can there truly be a spiritual dimension to cleaning my bathroom?Does God still love me on those days when I've forgotten how to love myself?

This book gives the reader a profound glimpse into the more secret, and sometimes more spiritual, side of orthodox Jewish life.
