We interrupt the news for some ‘at home’ talk. I really want to write more about what we are doing here at Beit-Shalom, but that is going to be a challenge until after this election. Between academics, sharing the truth about Israel and calling people to repentance and to wake up to the judgment that is imminently hanging over our nation, it is difficult to find time to write about the everyday stuff of life. But I am going to try.
We are still trying to get into the groove of academics. None of us is used to any kind of real schedule, so it is a real challenge. Having Dave here at odd times due to his work schedule is also a challenge, but we are getting there.
I am still trying to improve my Challah braiding. The top Challah below is probably my best yet for the six-strand braid.
These are raisin Challahs. I took each of three “snakes” and rolled them flat. Then I coated them with sorghum and raisins and pinched them together to make three raisin “snakes”. These I carefully braided together and then swirled into the pans. I forgot to get photos of these after baking.
This next one I only used 2 “snakes” because I saved one for Elias to use.
Here is Elias’ Cobra.
