Six Word Saturday: 30 Adar 1, 5771

Why the weird dates? Click here to find out!  And by the way – OMG, the real Adar is almost upon us!  If you know or care what that is…

Other “weekly challenges” I participate in:

Music to a homeschooling Jewish mama’s heart – seeing these words on the “slate”:

“Now it is tim(e) to dauvan.”

I guess I’ll explain a little:  I don’t usually, but 6ws attracts a diverse crowd.  “Davening” is our daily prayers.  It takes about half an hour, and it’s actually getting longer as the year goes on and I incorporate more and more bits of the full prayer service.

I’m always worried that some combination of my incompetence and inexperience – combined, perhaps, with adding too much before they’re ready - will quench the kids’ love of Judaism altogether.  This is not something I grew up with, so I’m very insecure about getting it wrong.

So when I come out to find this lovely chorus drawn on the slate, their mouths and hearts filled with smiles and songs, it really is music.  Instruments and all!


  1. It must feel amazing to see the kids embrace it.

    Thanks for playing 6WS!
