Celebrating Israel with Israeli Salad
This past week the kids and I ventured into the Temple Isaiah Kitchen and created our OWN Israeli salad in recognition of the holiday Yom Ha’atzmaut.
After washing our hands and going over kitchen rules, we ALL took turns chopping, and making the salad, while learning what this holiday means to us as a large Jewish community. Also, what it means to us as American Jews in Los Angeles. How can the Israel Independence day affect us? What can we do to celebrate it?
These were all questions that were posed and the answers we’re insightful and also some hilarious.
I think/hope what the kids took away is a greater recognition and pride in being a Jew. And even by doing the slightest things like making and eating an Israeli salad, pita and hummus (which is not pictures, but we had later at snack), you can show your pride and support for Jews everywhere.
Thanks for taking the time to read this blog post and I hope you enjoy the pictures!
