    When a Jewish-American family descended from Texas shop owners emigrated to Beer Sheva, Israel, it is no wonder that a new word emerged in their English-Hebrew-Yiddish lexicon. “Schlopping” – an amalgamation of schlep, love and shopping – became a hallmark of the mother-daughter relationship of Sheryl Mendlinger of Boston and Yael Magen of Swampscott, and serves as the foundation of a book the pair co-authored.
