We’re getting excited for Passover! Will you and your loved ones be celebrating? I’d love to hear how in the comments below!
Last year one memory that stuck out was going to an Orthodox Passover service in San Diego. A vegan meal was provided by the Temple which was nice! Since this temple was Orthodox, there was a clear partition between the men and women, so when you walked in the ladies were on one side and the males on the other. Bear went straight up to the front of the men’s section and really absorbed the whole experience! Front and center in the action! At the end, the Rabbi asked who he was – impressed and enthused by Bear’s curiosity and passion. Side note: Bear happened to have a string – similar to the Orthodox tzitsis (a string/fringe that hangs down from the waist, derived from the commandment in Book of Numbers). To be honest, I have no idea where this came from, he either made it knowing what it was or just by accident had it? The Rabbi also noticed this and complemented it. How cute are these photos..
If your wondering what all this religious speak is about, check out this blog explaining it. As I’ve mentioned before, Bear is thrilled about his Jewish heritage. It’s so innocent and sweet! Though it’s exciting and significant to him and I have a deep connection and appreciate for my Jewish upbringing, what I value about the holiday is honoring the celebrating tradition for it’s festivity and culture. I really like creating rhythm and ritual for Bear by marking the time and moment. If you missed my blog recapping our 2017 Passover Sedar, check it out! Such yum food and great photos!
