Graffiti I can get behind – and a contest!

posted by Homeshuling

It was a wet sukkot this year, and we didn’t have the chance to invite our friends to join us in decorating the walls. But we managed one good day of painting:



Here’s Ella writing on the walls of the sukkah. Can you guess what it says?

sukkah graffiti

I’ll donate $10 to the tzedakah of your choice for the first person to get it right. Leave a comment with the answer (not in personal spelling) and your preferred tzedakah.

PS – It’s the second day of Cheshvan, and my second blog post of the month…..think I can keep it up?

Why, “beautiful season”, of course! And it looks like it was, despite the winds and rain.

I was going to guess “beautiful design” but “season” works better.

Wonderful! Given that it’s sort of sukkot tzedakah, how about Safe Passage ( Do you get new “walls” each year?

yes, most years, we get “new” walls (sheets from good will, this year.) since we didn’t really cover them this year, i imagine we’ll use them again.

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

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
