|an extra smaller challah joined the 2 loaves, like a family of challah!|
Blessed are you, LORD our God, King of the Universe, who brings forth bread from the earth.
With trumpets and sound of the shofar
blast a sound before the King, ADONAI
This month is my favorite month (I also have other favorite months, but this is one of them, especially this time of year!), so when I was aware that we were nearing the beginning of the month, I was watching for the new moon of Elul!!
I like how the shofar goes well as a centerpiece on the table.
We blow the shofar on Shabbat, and during Elul, so it has a double place on this Shabbat!
And a happy Shabbat to set a place for my daughter, as she was home for her summer holidays!!
I think the Challah came out extra shining to reflect my heart at being happy for my daughter being home on Shabbat!
I made a dish with one of our local special citric tastes, Kabosu. It is like a lime but round in shape
and with a unique fragrance similar to a lime but a little different. People where we live use kabosu on everything, and it is one of the specialties of our Prefecture!
|Kabosu, like a lime, but as you can see they are completely round. Other tastes include ginger, oregano, salt, olive oil, and in this recipe apricot jam!|
|I think the Challah came out extra shining to reflect my heart at being happy for my daughter being home on Shabbat !!|
Blessings and Shabbat Shalom, a new Shabbat, by the time this is posted!!
Would anyone want to share a `shofar` scripture in this month? Something fun for Elul I might make a post of some to follow in this week, please share any, or another scripture that is on your heart if you are moved to!!
