Shabbat Shalom!

Please note: this blog is not updated on Friday nights or Saturdays. Comments made during this time will be put in a queue, to be moderated after Shabbat.

(Pictured, clockwise from upper left corner: Crudites/Matza well with hummus-filled pepper bucket, rice baseballs in celebration of this week's Red Sox victory, challot from the bakery(Thanks Mom!), camel cookies, graham cracker well, Machpela cake. The back row is a subset of the many containers I've filled with fresh water, in anticipation of the pending hurricane.)

Tonight's menu celebrates the Red Sox victory, as well as the weekly parsha.

Shabbat Shalom!

Recently published articles about parshat Chayei Sarah that I've enjoyed:

I'd like to extend my thanks to Jon Abbett and his family, for sponsoring Shabbat Morning Kiddush at our shul "with thanks to the Almighty for the kindness He has bestowed upon the 2007 World Champion Boston Red Sox."

Unrelated, but something cute and fun: Dira 6 Eliyahu Hanavi music video
("dira"= Hebrew for "apartment")

I also enjoyed Ezzie's favorite video by Sir Ken Robinson, a humorous and insightful 20 minute rant on creativity. (He says: "My contention is that creativity now, is as important in education as literacy.")

Ezzie also points to a beautiful and inspiring post by The Corner Point called Human Becomings. It moved me so much that I forwarded it to our school's kindergarten teachers and two people who are planning to teach at the kindergarten level.

Shabbat Shalom!

Wow. I am SO IMPRESSED by your chayyei sarah menu! And I thought I was so cool for doing Moshe- and luchos-shaped challot for Shavuos.

I admit I got thrown off by the shabbat shalom message and didn't look further. I thought you were taking a break!

Okay, I can start reading
