Jew Holiday!

Doing the Jew thing.

It's Shavuot! 

Will be very busy with family, eating cheese, cheesecake, at neighbourhood ice-cream parties (how awesome is that??) and offline during the holiday.

I actually really like Shavuot, not just because of the food but because it's when the Book of Ruth is read, and I love that 'your people are my people' thing, and also think it's the holiday that brings Jews and Christians together in a way. I like that a convert to Judaism was the spark in the lineage that led to King David.

Read more about the Book of Ruth here. 

Back early next week.
