Our Rosh HaShana

Rosh HaShana, the Jewish New Year.
A wonderful time to celebrate as a family the year that has passed and to contemplate the year ahead! We had a very special evening together.
There was the noise of the shofar being blown, the dipping of apples into honey, the blessings we read and shared to one another for the new year, and the dancing around the living room that followed.
Here is a small glimpse into our evening.
May it be a fruitful new year!

Daddy and Shalev blowing the Shofar!
(We went a little cheap this year as these are simple handmade shofars that i put together using toilet rolls, masking tape and a party blower. But they sounded AMAZINGLY authentic!!)

Shana Tova!
Have a blessed New Year!

We're home....

Yes, indeed we are home!

We actually returned about 2 weeks ago, but have only now had the oppurtunity to tell you all.

Since being home we've been unpacking, re-settling, and enjoying much fellowship and summer fun with friends and as a family.

Its was just such a special trip away, and we all enjoyed it immensely, but it is also good to be home again.
We havent yet managed to open the cds with our photos on from our trip away, so i dont have any (as of yet) to show you, but here are a few photos from our picnic at the beach last wednesday evening.

Its been super returning to Israel for the late-summer, its not too hot and not at all too cold.

Much love from the four of us!
