A year has passed and we are about to celebrate the Jewish New Year of 5778.

Two more days until we will be dipping apples in honey, and eat some pomegranate seeds for Rosh Hashanah of course. Around the Jewish New Year there are pomegranates all over Israel, so why not have them as table decoration or even a smoothie?!

Well, here is my Pomegranate-Tahini-Smoothie recipe, as promised to all my Instagram followers:

  • 1/2 Cup Pomegranate Seeds
  • 1/2 Cup Raspberries
  • 3 tbsp Tahini
  • 1 tbsp Chia Seeds
  • 1 Handful Baby Spinach
  • 2 tbsp Honey
  • 1” Ginger
  • 1 Cup Water

“You can’t dance at two weddings with one behind” says an old Yiddish proverb, which is used in a slightly different way in Hebrew nowadays as “You can’t dance at two weddings in the same time”.

Last year, my grandmother celebrated her 90th birthday and we went to Germany for the celebration which happened to be exactly during Purim. My son was learning all about Purim, the Megillah, costumes and more at his Gan, but unfortunately we had to take off just before the holiday. While staying in Germany he continually asked if there will be Purim once we get back and if he can dress up as a firefighter this year. With a heavy heart I had to explain him that the Purim party at the kindergarten won’t wait till we return and that he will have to wait until next year.

He couldn’t dance at two parties in the same time.

A year has passed, and it’s almost Purim. This year he can finally dress up as firefighter Sam, 3 times at least, with all the parties we have been invited (so far).

Purim is one of the most joyous and fun holidays on the Jewish calendar. Not only for kids. You all may know about reading the Megillah, making noise and eating Hamentaschen, but there is one Purim custom for adults you may not know about – GETTING WASTED!

Ad-lo-yada – “until he doesn’t know”

The Aramic word explains how drunk Jews are obligated to get: so drunk that they can’t tell the difference between Haman the cursed and Mordecai the blessed.

Adloyada became the official name for the annual Purim parades in different cities in Israel. Costume parties throughout the country happening at the same time.

Here are some pictures from 1934 and 1959 I stumbled upon, from “Adloyadas” in Jerusalem and Tel-Aviv.

What I love about social media is that you get to know people from all over the world. I “met” Yael from the Jewish Latin Princess on Instagram a few months ago. I am in Israel, she in Texas… but it’s 2016, well almost 2017, and collaborating with other talented, creative people around the world, who share the same passion for modern Jewish gifts, is made easy thanks to Mark Zuckerberg and others.
