Rosh Hashanah.

G's family (and G) are Jewish, and we have been celebrating the new year. We spent the first night of Rosh Hashanah at G's parent's, but it was chaotic and I only was able to take one food pic. However, it was of the Matzah Ball Soup, which is one of G's mom's specialties. Brilliant as always.

G's mom makes really excellent soup. It has a deep chickeny flavour and the matzah's are always light and fluffy. We also had brisket and stuff. Good times, but it was noisy. Why? Well....

That's really a bit complicated. G's brother has a new baby that is beautiful with a solid scream. Her other brother has a daughter who is 7 (I think) and likes to cheat at games, causing one of the other young nephews (who's 5) have a complete freak out (because he's very honest and good-natured). They were screaming. G's mom has a terrible cold, had lost her voice, her ears were plugged and she couldn't hear anything. Family was visiting from Israel. Two large, sweet and large border collies were running around. Chaos.

But it's nice. I am so far away from my family, and it's nice to be able to have people who are constants. However, we hoped that the second night of Rosh Hashanah, being served at our house from our new kitchen, would be less chaotic.

And for the most part, it was.

That's all fine. What, however, do you think about Obadiah Shoher's criticism pf Rosh Hashanah as aholiday that has nothing to do with New Year? Here, for example http://samsonblinded.org/blog/petty-paganism.htm
