It has begun.
And it is crazy.
I’ve had baby showers coming out of my ears and Sister’s wedding plans. Work is crazy and I don’t know what will happen in two weeks. This means that what I should probably have started three weeks ago… has to be done in a week. Sounds like fun. Don’t be jealous.
I’ve ordered some greeting cards. I’ve started considering maybe doing a “Third Night RH/Shabbat” dinner on the 30th. Need to ask The Boy and his roommate to see if I can use their place to hold it, however. But being guys, I think a quick glance at intended menu will tilt them to yes. Also, if you are in the area and don’t already have a Yom Tov invite, please send me an email and I’d be happy to have you (once I receive The Boy’s permission).
But, what am I most nervous about? Helping with Children’s Programming at shul. What would you want your 9-year-old to learn about Rosh HaShannah? What’s a good physical activity to break up an hour-long child’s service that’s still educational? How do I ‘teach’ something to a kid when I never encountered Judaism as one? These are all whizzing through my mind while skimming the materials provided to us. I’ve taught public school before; why is Hebrew so difficult?!
