ClockOn March 13th, most of the United States and Canada will be adjusting their clocks backwards for Daylight Savings Time (DST).   We wanted to remind you that MikvahMinder will automatically make these adjustments for you, as long as you have configured it to do so.  

To verify that MikvahMinder will automatically adjust for DST:

  • Log  in to your MikvahMinder account
  • Go to MikvahMinder preferences
  • Make sure the checkbox next to 'Automatically Adjust for Daylight Savings Time' is checked.  (See below)

As long as your time zone is set correctly, this feature will work anywhere in the world!

Shabbat Cosmetics may only be used within the following Halachic guidelines, in accordance with Rabbi Blumenkrantz’s opinion.

All cosmetics used on Shabbat must be powder, so use the back of the brush to break them up into fine powder. (See #2 below)

  1. Face must be dry and clean from any other makeup. Spray moisturizer spray and allow to dry.
  2. When using the powder, turn the container over and use the loose powder from the cap. The powder may not be picked up with the brush from above the cake.
  3. You must use a separate brush for every color so you are not blending two colors. No sponges, applicators or fingers may be used. OUR BRUSHES ARE CUSTOM MADE TO ENABLE THE BEST RESULTS.
  4.  You cannot blend two colors together to create a new shade.
  5. You cannot use one product over another. Use the blush first and then the broken powder foundation around it.
  6. You can reapply the same color with its own brush as often as you like. Spray moisturizer sprays again to moisten and set.
  7. You can remove makeup with makeup remover or wash your face with the diluted cleanser only (without cotton or pre-soaked pads). Rinse off with water, dry with a paper towel, and then with a towel.
