    You too. Too bad we can't follow the mitzvah to get so plastered we can't tell Mordechai from Haman--guess we'll leave that to the guys.

    • I am jonesing for the kind of hamantashen I had as a Brooklyn kid: big, soft yeast dough, glazed with egg. All I can find here are the kind made with cookie dough--and the poppy seed filling is too smooth. Was a bit disconcerting to walk into the same bakery that had pački and King cakes for Fat Tuesday and see apricot hamantashen today!

    Happy Purim

    I wish I could be happier this Purim. Both the JCC that my daughter used to work at and the JCC that my son in law worked at have received bomb threats and had to be evacuated on the last two weeks. This would be the Osher Family JCC in Palo Alto, CA and the Addison Penzak JCC in Los Gatos, CA. I am, literally, sickened by the ugliness of rising anti-Semitism and frightened as well. Neither work for JCC's at present, but they still have many, many friends there and feel deeply connected to the community. This is almost unimaginable. Can someone please pass the hamantaschen (prune, please)?

    The day school in our neighborhood Reform temple (where we belong) got a bomb threat a couple of days ago. If Islamic terrorists were responsible, churches would also have been targeted…which they weren't, but mosques were. It's the alt-right being increasingly emboldened to commit acts of bigotry in general and anti-Semitism in particular without consequence, as a result of their chosen candidate winning. (More specific than that I cannot be on this particular thread).

    York PA JCC had one last week. It is next door to our temple. So very upsetting

    I love apricot, but am on a ketogenic diet trying to drop the letrozole weight. Might just have to cheat once

    Happy holiday all! Have fun.

    Hugs, Susan

    The one suspect that has been arrested so far for some of the JCC bomb threats and ADL office bomb threat is a known left-wing former journalist. This is a fact. Please do not accuse Trump supporters without facts to back you up.

    i am not accusing Trump supporters. i am, however, convinced that the "permission" to express racist, anti-Semitic and anti- immigrant views in overt, and dangerous ways is a direct result of Trump's attitudes and views. That others may be using this, even if they don't share Trump's views, as an excuse for their own sick purposes is even worse.

    Shana Tova! I haven't been on bco much. My DD and SIL were here for a week for Sukkot. They left this morning. It was to have them here. I'm one proud mama!! My youngest daughter (19) made aliyah in May before her gap year ended. She was in the states for 2 months this summer, working at camp back east and visit her sister and grandmother. She went back to Israel the end of August and now is doing her national service. Next year, university.

    Here's to a great 5778 for everyone. Karen

    Hi ladies - I just found this thread!

    Hooray. It's good to have a place to share.

    Did you know we have some specifically Jewish resources here: http://sharsheret.org/

    I was thinking.....maybe we could post our Hebrew names for a davening list for a refuah sheleimah? What do you think?

    I'll start us off.... שרה שולמית בַּת שרה

    Welcome, hollydolly!

    I do recall listing our Hebrew names some time ago. This thread goes through periods of activity and inactivity. Mine is Liba Shana. An early Shabbat Shalom to you all (or Gut Shabbos in the Yiddish tradition)

    Mom passed away in the early morning hours of Thursday January 18th. We had the levaya that afternoon. I had the privilege of being with Mom the last 4 days of her life and my husband and I were at Mom's apt with her when she passed away. Karen

    Hello! Have any of you had hereditary genetic testing done? I just got my results and found that I am 96.4% "Ashkenazi Jewish" with .7% Nigerian, 1% Engllish and 1.7% Central Asian. Both my parents were Jewish, my mom from Lithuania/Latvia and my dad from Poland/Russia. I already knew I am a Tay Sachs carrier, but I do not believe I carry either BRACA gene. I was just surprised at how homogeneous I am. Both my children are adopted, one from Brasil, the other from Mexico and their genetic backgrounds are much more diverse. Have any of you done this type of hereditary testing and are my results unusual?
