Happy Lag B’Omer

posted by Homeshuling

There were no Lag B”Omer bonfires in our town. So, we made our own. I almost can’t believe this is my backyard.

I am definitely going to incorporate this into our family tradition next year. Thanks for the idea and the photos (visual aids are ALWAYS helpful!).

This was our first, but I’ll definitely do it again – it was so much fun. We invited my kindergartner’s whole class to come and join us.

Can’t believe there is a Jewish excuse to build a bonfire in one’s backyard. One word: AWESOME.
When the boys are big enough appreciate that, we’re definitely doing it too. Thanks for the idea. :)

It’s definitely worth waiting. We had one baby there, and we had to all spend a lot of time running interventions to keep her from walking right into the fire.

We did the same thing! That’s a neat fire pit thingy – where did you get it? We used a little old-fashioned grill (the kind you can use on a balcony) , with considerably less panache.

We borrowed it from a friend, but I’m going to ask her where she got it, because I want one too!

I hate to ask such a mundane question, but do you know where the suction-cup bow and arrow set came from? I want a few for next year’s big Family Education do at my shul. The set at Back to Basics Toys is 35 bucks.

I don’t know where they came from, but since she bought 3, I’m sure they weren’t very expensive. I’ll ask for you-
As for the fire pit, my friend who owns it doesn’t remember where she got it.

ok ok I’m embarrassed to say where the suction cuppy bow and arrow set came from… but it was the only place i could find it and I was feeling the uncontrollable urge for some Yochanan ben Zakkai bow and arrow action in the backyard… my rare appearance in … walmart ! in the “wild west” toys section! 6 bucks…

Teaching the Four Questions to young children
One of the greatest privileges of being a kindergarten teacher in a Jewish day school is having the opportunity to teach children to recite the four questions. Unlike almost anything else I teach them about Jewish ritual, this is "real work." The candles will get blessed, kiddush will be recited, an

Guess what's Kosher for Passover (this will change your life.)
I'm not exaggerating. The bane of my Passover existence has been pareve baking. I cook a lot more meat during the holiday than I do the rest of the year, which means a lot more pareve desserts. Which has, up until now, usually meant margarine made from disgusting ingredients such as cottonseed oi

Why I love the New American Haggadah (and it's not just because I got to have a martini with Nathan Englander.)
I'm not a haggadah junkie. I know many Jews whose shelves are overflowing with numerous versions of the Haggadah - from the traditional Maxwell House to the not-so-traditional Santa Cruz - and whose seders are an amalgam of commentaries, poems, and (alas) responsive readings, from these dog-eared, p

Best Hamentashen Ever, even better. And, a Purim opera.
This time of year, I'm always excited when I look at my google analytics and see that people have landed at my blog by searching for "hamentashen recipe". I love the idea of people all over the world making my great-grandmother's fabulous hamentashen, the same ones my mom made with me and that I mak
