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!
