Cinderella, or: Anger management

Cinderella lived life hopping mad;
Such was the effect forced mopping had!


Festival of Shavuot (Pentecost)

The Jewish festival of Shavuot begins tonight at sunset and ends at sunset on Monday. In terms of religious restrictions, this festival is similar to Shabbat (the Sabbath), and I have therefore scheduled some blog posts (following this one) to go up in the meantime – I hope you enjoy them!

  1. I had to read the description of the form twice to figure it out!! I think this is a playful form and one that I’ll have to consider… seems it would lend itself to maxims/proverbs…

    1. I don’t think it’s considered fully “gone”, Pete, but for the time being all children are back at school (although I think the rocket fire has closed some schools down for the time being).

    1. P.S.

      Shavuot is one of the three major Jewish festivals – which in Hebrew are called ‘chag’. (Same word as the Arabic ‘hajj’.) On such an occasion, we say, “chag sameach”, which means: “happy festival”.

      You can find pronunciation and other info on Wikipedia HERE.

  2. My first Shavuot, and a holiday I had never heard of before a few weeks ago. In my readings I find that a lot of non-Orthodox don’t celebrate it mainly because there are not a lot of customs or rituals surrounding it, but for me I find there is a bigger connection to the holiday than for some of the other, more well-known days. I plan contemplation on my conversion, reading the Book of Ruth (a convert!) and off course eating cheesecake for my meal. πŸ™‚

    1. cheese cake for conversion sounds like a religion I might join. Enjoy πŸ™‚ (A friend of mine wanted to become a nun after so many years sitting za-zen – only she could not decide which religion. I guess cheeses cake might have swayed her too.)
