Rosh HaShana - Happy New Year, everyone!

Well, I want to wish you all a happy, healthy, sweet new year. Nope, no typos there, just friendly wishes for everyone!

However, Dave found this funny business card for me to post a while ago, and I thought it would go well with our seasonal sweet theme. (Halva does mean sweet, after all, as we all surely recall.) Anyway, a friend came to our house for Shabat, and brought us some delicious, sweet Halva from the shuk (Jerusalem's Mahane Yehuda Market). We do love Halva! But later, Dave noticed that the wrapper said:

He found it quite funny that they seemed so lacking in self confidence. 

On the one hand: We rule! We are the Halva Kingdom! 
And on the other hand: Do we make Halva? Well, we make kind of halvas. Yeah, they're pretty close. Come, try some!

I can personally vouch that the Halva we had was absolutely scrumptious! Here's hoping that this year,Halva Kingdom will feel better about themselves, and change their wrappers accordingly. And here's hoping that we all have a year as sweet as that Halva! Yum, this is making me hungry.

שנה טובה ומתוקה לכולנו!
