07:03 am: Teddy's camp questions
Hanukkah, challah, and circumcision.

Yep, Jewish camp.

So we're going to get a Menorah. We used to name the candles (or that's the way I thought of it, anyway) as we lit them, which was my favorite part of the celebration (that and latkes with applesauce). I might use that as a writing prompt here, actually.*

And we're going to bake some challah, which I'm looking forward to.

We're not going to do anything about circumcision.

I am going to do more research on Judaism, however, as I want to be able to answer Teddy's questions more thoroughly. His biggest stumper, so far, is why some things become (and stay) traditions. I don't even know where to begin the research on that one. Maybe talk to a rabbi? My searches of the interwebs have not been satisfactory, which I assume is because I don't know how to pose the right questions.

* Naming, not applesauce.

I know it's a little late, but Joy of Cooking has the best, easiest challah recipe! Inge

I've always used the one from the Zoom catalog

I don't think there's any such thing as easy challah, is there? What with three risings and the braiding and all?
