A Glimpse into My Daughter's Jewish Education



Tonight after gymnastics we went to dinner with some of Allie's friends and the girls were having a wonderful time just hanging out and being with each other. The following conversation occurred:

O (friend of Allie): Do you believe the Saviour has already come or is coming?

Allie: huh?

O: Do you believe the Saviour has already come or is coming?

Allie: who?

O: The Saviour
Allie: Huh?
O: The Saviour. You know, the Saviour.
Allie: Who? Mom?

Mommy Meryl: O honey, we don't learn about that at our Temple, we learn other things.

O to Allie: Like what?
Allie: Like Chanukah, uhhh Shabbat, matzah. . .

O's Mom: O, Jewish people believe in the Old Testament. You know, Abraham, Issac, Jacob, and . . .

Allie: The Gingerbread Man.
No, I'm not kidding. . .and if that is not blog fodder, I don't know what is!

ROFL! Oh you know! The Gingerbread Man!

And he said unto to the man "Run, run, as fast as you can! You can't catch me! I'm the Gingerbread Man"

I think it's in the Book of Recipes. ;-P

Oh my!! I'm curious how this conversation even came up in the first place! Very cute!

I grew up in a community that was 75 percent Jewish. So, whether we were of the faith or not (I'm a Protestant), we got the Jewish AND the Christian holidays off! I went to BBG dances AND Christmas parties. The Jewish family next door invited us to Seder dinner, and, of course, they came to Easter dinner as well. It was the best grounding in faith that any kid could hope for!
