Happy Jewish New Year 5775… Tizku Leshanim Rabbot! Ne’imot VeTovot!

01 Jewish Year 5772 VOR 10

******

01 Rosh ha-Shana 5

******

01 Rosh ha-Shana 3

______________________________

Tizku Leshanim Rabbot (“may you merit many years”), is the formal Sephardi greeting, to which one answers, Ne’imot VeTovot (“pleasant and good ones”). That’s a good place to start. To all of my friends keeping the holiday… my good wishes… MANY YEARS! Keep the faith…

20 April 2014. It’s Holy Easter! HOORAY!

00 Happy Easter 01. Happy Acolytes. 20.04.14.

______________________________

It’s a time of celebration and FUN… this is the central day for all real Christians. This is what our faith is all about. Don’t have a long face… this is a joyous time. That’s why so many people reject Christianity; it looks as though some believers were not only weaned on pickles, they’ve been their constant diet ever since. SMILE and pass the pierogies… we’re Christians… that’s what we do! … Yes, I WILL have seconds on the galumpkis, if you please.

18 April 2014. Easter’s On Its Way… Making Easter Eggs in Yekaterinburg

00 Easter 01. Assumption Cathedral Yekaterinburg. 18.04.14.

______________________________

They’re gettin’ ready for Easter in Yekaterinburg (that’s in the Urals… it’s where the Imperial Family suffered martyrdom). People at the Assumption Cathedral are making Easter eggs for the weekend services. Yes, Virginia, things are achingly NORMAL in the Mother Church… thank God for that! Get those last-minute things done… it’s almost here! Remember… the Easter Bunny’s legit… he’s on pre-Revolutionary Easter cards with “Christ is Risen” on ‘em… let your kids have some FUN…
