Only in Israel, Only on Chanukah

Only in Israel, Only on Chanukah

Taken by my husband, Joshua, while cheese shopping this Chanukah at the Machaneh Yehuda market.


    • I meant since we buy a lot of cheese on chanukah, but that’s also true on shavuot and other times. i guess I liked the sound of the title;)

  1. Is it unusual to see tefillin worn at work?

  2. Thank you for your reply. I know nothing of these things. I want to thank Joshua for taking this picture though. It is now stuck in my mind. “these words” . . . we are to teach them to our children and talk of them in the house, or when out and about . . . when we lie down, and when we awake. We are to bind “these words” as a sign, on our hand – and as frontlets between our eyes. I see the Jewish mom . . . thinking, speaking, praying “these words” as she cleans the home, as she bakes the bread, as she cares for her children. Not just in the holy place, but also in her sacred home – just like the cheese man.

  3. Here it is! In Henny’s book . . . page 461! The nine portions of “sichah” – Henny taught, “It means to talk to Hashem every second. While you’re doing your laundry, while you’re doing your dishes, you must learn to talk to HaKadosh Baruch Hu. That’s what we’re here for.”
    (Quote taken from Emunah with Love and Chicken Soup by Sara Yoheved Rigler.) Pray all day long, even when you’re slicing cheese!
