Hi, I’m Amital. Welcome to Organized Jewish Home!
I’m the mommy of five amazing small people: three boys (13, 10, and 7.5) and two little girls (6 and 3). I’m the wife of a wonderful dh. I homeschool my kids, I teach online classes at a college, and I have a PhD in psychology. I find it calming to organize and plan–getting things planned out helps me actually relax when I have some down time instead of worrying.
I have always worked toward simcha (joy) and shalom (peace) in my home by making lists and planning ahead. And that has worked for me – I’ve kept things flexible and changed it when it hasn’t worked. People asked how I do it and I’ve sent out copies of different checklists, info sheets, and other printables to show them. And after a dozen or so requests, Organized Jewish Home was born!
About Organized Jewish Home:
This site is focused on organizing and streamlining the work in an observant Jewish household. Anyone who is looking to plan their lives better can use what I write about here, though–take out what doesn’t apply to you. Just because my weekly planner page or goals worksheet works for me doesn’t mean it fits you as well–so change it!
I left all of the printables on this site as Word documents (and a few Excel) so anyone can easily download, view, and personalize them. I also do my best to provide links to other sources that might work for you in addition to providing my own. Personalizing these lists and plans is the key to getting them to work for you!
Just a few of my favorites:
- An overview of my awesome laundry system (My ever-growing laundry load is so much easier to handle now!)
- Parsha: a bunch of ideas for crafts, activities and food for EVERY weekly parsha – how cool is that?
- AaBbCc spoons (busy bag): my most popular Pinterest hit
