A New Friend Made

Those who know me well know that I love Jewish history and tradition. I have often wished that I had Jewish background so that I could understand the symbolism in the Word better.

I was blog hopping of families adopting from Ethiopia and stumbled across Standing At The Crossroads. As I scrolled down and saw Messianic Keepers at Home, I started shouting inside…(yes, I’m weird.) Adopting…homeschooling….Messianic Jew…on a homestead in Montana… Can I seriously just go move in with her?

I emailed Gail and told her I would love for her to teach me. Gail, being the kind hearted woman she is, didn’t brush me off as a weirdo and said she’d love to! She actually has a blog just for that! It is Beit Simcha - House of Rejoicing and she would love to answer questions! Any questions that you would have? The family and I came up with some at dinner the other night. (coming your way soon Gail!)

Here is my favorite Jewish article in my house.

It’s an old menorah from a temple in Poland. I have read a lot about the stories of the Jewish people from Poland during the Holocaust so this one had particular sentiment for me. As my new friend, Gail, said….the stories it could tell.

On another note, the oldest daughter had a fight with a glue gun last night…not sure who won.
