Thank You for Your Support


There’s something about the Thanksgiving season that stimulates a reflex: we start to enumerate our blessings. I have an incredible list of personal thanks to G-d for all that I have. And as I write to you now, I feel so thankful for the JoK family we have built here together. Every person who visits this site deserves credit for building this family. As in every family, each person is different, each has a different voice. Every recipe and every comment you bring makes us stronger, for you offer your unique perspective, opinion, kitchen tip or words of encouragement. With G-d’s help, we have created this kosher cooking kitchen universe together and I am so appreciative.

It’s important that this virtual kitchen we’ve built together has all the bells and whistles of your dream kitchen, and that requires solid communication lines. So for your last chance to win a free turkey let us know in the comments below what you want to see more of, what you like, what you want, what you wish we had, what you’d like us to feature. The sky is the limit, my friends. Give us your ideas about the site’s functionality, recipes, topics we cover… anything that you want to see on in the coming year, anything you want us to expand. We are here and we hear you. Please also add a note to let us know if you have bought my latest book, Quick & Kosher Meals in Minutes, and/or subscribed to “Joy of Kosher” magazine. Please be assured that our winners are picked at random and purchase is absolutely NOT required to be eligible to win. It just makes us feel good to know that you want to support this enterprise, and we hope it will encourage others to support us as well.

Here’s why. You know we don’t charge anything for our website. For the almost 5,000 recipes you see posted here (and we try to grow it each day for you so that when you search, you NEVER want for a recipe, and you can find one that suits your needs perfectly.) When you buy our magazines and books, you are telling us that you appreciate what we do and you want to help keep it going!

With Chanukah just around the corner, this is the perfect time to give a special cooking gift to someone you love. Buy a subscription to the magazine for yourself or for someone that you know will just love you for it! Right now, a one year subscription is only $18 (Chai!) The regular price is $24, so that’s 25% off! And there’s a Chanukah sale on my latest book, Quick & Kosher Meals in Minutes. It’s now only $18 (regularly $34.99 – that’s almost 50% off) and that includes FREE shipping anywhere in the US. These are great as Chanukah gifts, hostess gifts, bridal and wedding shower gifts, teacher gifts, welcome to the neighborhood gifts, etc. Stock up now – while these sales are going on. You can give them out all year long. Purchasing our books and magazine lets us know you enjoy what we are doing and helps us continue.

So thank you for being you! Thanks for coming to the site, for taking the time to write how we can better serve you, and for joining us at our table. Tamar, Hadassah and I are thankful for you this Thanksgiving as we are every day, because without you, we wouldn’t be here. We’d be talking to ourselves, we’d be cooking alone. We love the family that you have created with us and we look forward to sharing even more with you in the future.
