I hope you all had a very wonderful celebration of Yom Teruah!
We hosted a small party for our congregation. This time the setup was for 15 instead of just four like the photo shoot.
You know it's a good potluck when someone bakes homemade challah and brings five different honeys to go with it!
The sounding of the shofar!
DIY Torah portion chalkboards were a gift from one of our guests.
This was my choice. :)
The burning menorah. So beautiful.
Scripture readings and other printed things.
Since giving is central to Yom Teruah we put together Action Packs for Voice of the Martyrs. These are basic items (soap, t-shirts, blankets, socks, etc) that go to persecuted believers in places like Syria, Sudan, Iraq, and Pakistan. Get involved with the important work VOM does and support those who are faced with hardships we can't imagine for our faith!
Our shofar mostly lives on the mantle. Someone always asks about it.
Because have you ever seen a menorah in front of a tassel garland before?
