Yesterday, I volunteered for Maimo's Yom Chesed. Close to 500 people volunteered at a variety of projects to help the local community. Shifra and I worked on a project preparing Chanukah bags for the Jewish food pantry to ensure all local families can celebrate the holiday!
I mailed out my Christmas/holiday cards this week. With Chanukah stamps...conflict of holidays?
My kids love to learn cursive. I know it's a dying art...but they love our lessons on Friday. This week, we learned lowercase f. All of a sudden, I hear a kiddo singing..."I like big f's and I cannot lie" I nearly died laughing...how he knew the song and how to riff on it is beyond me!!
Mom and I headed back into the city during Thanksgiving weekend for a show and some culture at the MET Museum.
One of the exhibitions they currently have is all about Jerusalem from 1000 - 1400. We were both excited to check it out.
But first...I had to stop by the Egypt exhibit because it must be one of my favorite parts of the MET. I fell in love with it all over again being there as the sun went down...gorgeous!
The exhibit was really interesting. Tons of amazing artifacts. So much gold! They had an impressive collection of old books: bibles, qu'rans, and more. It was really interesting to see how Christian the city was in those years!
