Ella's tallit is done
Yesterday, I also made the Cholesterol Death Kugel with which we usually break our fast. But this time I made the noodles. I used semolina flour for the first time. The semolina makes a really stiff dough. It was hard work to roll out. The pasta dough didn't want to go through the pasta roller, so I rolled it out by hand. It's a good thing that I'm strong.
We are breaking the fast at a friend's house. I'm grateful to not be reponsible for the entire meal.
Yesterday, I received an email from a cousin wishing me an EZ fast. The concept made me laugh. It made me think of doing an EZ fast at a drive through synagogue.
Many friends taper off their usage of caffeine before Yom Kippur to avoid the inevitable horrible headache. I just assume that the headache is part of the biblical injunction "V'initem et naphsoteichem"
making your soul suffer.
Best wishes for a meaningful holiday to all of you.
