I'm back...did you miss me?

Shalom everyone!
I am back in the US from my most amazing time in Eretz Israel. There is so much I want to share with you and so much I am still digesting from my all too short time there. It will probably take me several entries to write it all, so try to be patient with me.
First to let you know, my children, B"H, are well and have grown so much during their time in Israel! I have to tell you, I was particularly nervous about seeing my son because I know that he has grown so much spiritually. I just wasn't sure how it would be...I am not sure exactly how to explain it. Part of me was worried I wouldn't be able to talk to him, share with him...y’know, the whole phenomenon of the young people 'flippin' out' in yeshiva/seminary. Well, my worries were for not, B"H! He was a true tzaddik! Every word that came from his mouth was Torah to share with me, and still my beloved son, showing me the same respect and love he always has. The same goes for my daughter...ay, what can I say, B"H, may they continue to grow from strength to strength.

OH WOW! Ok, so I admit I bought this CD thinking I would check it out and pass it on to my daughter. She just loves Matisyahu but I gotta tell you, it ain't happening! I have to get here her own copy now! I am loving this CD! I liked Matisyahu's live at Stubb's CD well enough especially 'King without a Crown'. But the whole CD was not my total cup of tea. But this new album really has something so much more to it. The lyrics, music, everything is just on another level. He has obviously grown in many ways, it shows. Track 3 'Time of your Song' is my absolute fave! The whole CD is just amazing. Check it out, and buy an extra copy for your young people!

I'm the arrow, you're my bow, shoot me forth and I will go
And I know and I go and I go get up and go
Make me feel its for real tell me what you know.

Look, up in the sky! It's a bird! It's a plane! No it's airborne chometz! Who will save us from this plague? Rest easy Yidden, disguised as the average balabusta is none other than the scourge of chometz, Matza Woman! Yes, Matza Woman, stronger than a piece of furniture, faster than a speeding toddler, able leap tall piles of laundry in a single bound! Known by many aliases, Imma, mommy, mom, ma', honey, sister, best friend, she is in a neighborhood near you searching for chometz. In fact, you probably know her. hmmm.... maybe she is you. ;-)


Well, friends, family and misc. kind folks who read my blog, I am outta here! G-d willing my youngest and I are now safely on our journey to Eretz Israel to go home for Pesach and visit my beloved children, her siblings. This is my very first trip there and I cannot even tell you all the feelings that I am having. How does one react and feel when you go home? When you have never been there but you know you belong? I cannot wait to touch the Wall...I am told the Shechinah is there. My children tell me it is an experience like no other. :::sigh::: I cannot imagine, I really cannot. I can tell you this is a dream I have had my whole life. Oy...Abba is very kind indeed. B'ezrat Hashem (With G-d's help) We will be staying a week in Tsfat and then the second week in Yerushalayim (Jerusalem). That is where we will be celebrating the seders, G-d willing. I will try to email you while I am there, and take lots of pics. ( I have been threatened I will have you know, if I do not take lots o' pics.)
OK, gotta sign off here! Have a happy and kosher Pesach! B'ezrat Hashem, I will chat with you soon!
