Two Projects for Elul – Carnival & NEW Rosh Hashanah Lapbook!

image

Yup, I’m resurrecting the Carnival of Jewish Homeschooling, and I hope you-all will come along for the ride.  Here’s some information and links to past carnivals.

Or, just round up your best blog posts about teaching your kids – whether or not you homeschool full-time! – and submit them here.


So what else is NU around here???

A brand-new Rosh Hashanah Lapbook is on its way, with VERY special original graphics (unlike the one at left) created especially by Ted (my super-talented husband).

This will be a “paid” lapbook (like the ones I made for Tefillah and Pesach) meaning you PayPal me whatever you think is reasonable, and I send you print-quality PDFs along with basic instructions.  You provide the content:  ie, find books to read and discuss the topics with your children in any way that fits your family’s beliefs and observances.

Components I’m including in this fabulous lapbook!

  1. Months of the Jewish Year
  2. When is Rosh Hashanah?
  3. Rosh Hashanah… in the Torah
  4. Names of Rosh Hashanah
  5. Honey Comes From Bees
  6. Round Challahs for Rosh Hashanah
  7. A Shofar is a Ram’s Horn
  8. Rosh Hashanah Recipe Cards (including my honey cake recipe)
  9. Greeting Card Template, Sample Greetings & Envelope
  10. Tashlich – Crumbs in the River
  11. What’s in My Machzor
  12. Scales:  The Book of Life
  13. Symbolic Foods on the Table
  14. Akeidas Yitzchak (The Binding of Isaac)
  15. Sounds of the Shofar
  16. Unesaneh Tokef: Teshuvah, Tefillah, Tzedakah (Repentence, Prayer, Charity)
  17. Forgiving Our Friends

If there’s anything you’d like to see included, ask me now… or else stay tuned.  It should be available by about the middle of next week, in plenty of time to let you work on it before Rosh Hashanah!

Yay, to a busy, fun month of back-to-homeschool!!!  (though it’s true; we haven’t exactly been AWAY…)

Ancient Auction Secret: If Chinese auctions are racist, why do Jews love them so much?

Ah, Jews, Jews, Jews, Jews.  You sure do love your Chinese auctions, don’t you? It seems that even in an era of political correctness, within certain circles, this term just will not die . And frankly, I’m mortified. I’m not Chinese, but I have family who is Chinese.  Some are Korean, as well.  I guess this makes us more ethnically diverse than many Jews, but I suspect most Jewish families are moving in this direction.  Still.  Even if we don’t know a single Chinese person, we should still stop calling it that. First of all… is it actually racist to call it a Chinese auction? I figured I’d let Chinese people decide.  But when I turned to Google to find out how Chinese people feel about Chinese auctions, what I found was mostly… nothing.  Silence.  I did find some debate (presumably among non-Chinese people) over whether it was too far in the direction of political correctness to refer to these as a “silent auction” or (as in some parts of the States) a “tricky tray.”  (Ok
