I did so little to prepare for Pesach because we were not home, AT ALL, for any part of Pesach!
Detailed blog posts will be forthcoming! (b'li neder!)
Meanwhile, here is a taste of how we spent Pesach:
We went to my Rav's home for Leil HaSeder (Seder night) and the first chag (holiday).
As soon as chag was over, we drove to Sde Eliyahu (a religious kibbutz in Emek Beit She'an) and spent the night at my friend's home.
The next morning, we went to Sachneh (Gan HaShlosha -- a national Park in Emek Beit She'an) for the Israeli Jugglers Convention. We were there for five days (four nights), including Shabbat.
Then we went to The Muqata for Sh'vi'i L'Fesach (the 7th day of Pesach).
I do not know how long it will take me to "recover" from our vacations, but they were TOTALLY worth the effort!!
Please daven (or send happy, healing thoughts) for RivkA bat Teirtzel.
With love and optimism,
