HaShavua, 5-19-17 ~ Iyar 23, 5777
What a week!
In honor of Shavuot, we have been learning about grains. On Tuesday we went on the bus to Vital Vittles kosher organic bakery, and saw bread being sliced. We also saw machines that mix dough and mill wheat berries into flour, just like we did in the kitah that morning! We used our milled flour in this week's challah, together with our garden herbs. We enjoyed the bakery's cinnamon rolls as a treat, and they gave us fresh wheat rolls for the next day's snack.
On Wednesday, Megan, Nadav's mom, came to show us how to weave on our kitah's loom, and brought us mini looms for our own weaving! Over, under, over, under, our little fingers moved.
We enjoyed Melita's music and movement on Thursday, and welcomed Nate's dad to town on Friday at Ma'agal Shabbat.
Mazal tov to Ori, Nadav's Ima, on her Ph.D, and to Sarah, on her brothers' bar mitzvah!
Shabbat Shalom Umevorach,
Judy, Ruth, and Krissy
