Ceremony was great, the Rabbi told of organizing Hillel at Stanford against the Westboro lunatics coming earlier in the year. And how they got 1000 people to be counterprotestors to ignore the 15 Westboro creeps. And it all being about community, to fight evil beyond our local focus.

Maybe it's sentimental, but while modern wine experience is fine, sweet grapey 11% Manischewitz is always welcome. In the old days we were always allowed it, at temple at Bar Mitzvahs or seders at home, irrespective of age. In our modern litigious society and police/nanny state, uh uh, no.

/Wines always say things like peach overtones, notes of citrus, all that. Manischewitz unpretentiously tastes like concord grape juice with that old 11%.

A good attorney (most likely Jewish, naturally) could make a case that the wine is part of the religious celebration and that children could imbibe with their parents' consent. I knew and used to hang out with the kids of the man who founded The Peyote Way Church of God (google it) just outside the Gila Valley in Arizona. It's had its share of publicity. And these are WHITE people, not Native Americans. It's a really complicated legal matter in the state because state law conflicts with federal law (much like the legalized marijuana laws in different states), but the DEA has been leaving them alone for years.

If people are going to use religion to be pricks and do things like not selling birth control to women, I think other people, and I include myself, should use religion as a reason to ingest things they're not "supposed" to.

I thought children of a certain age (under 21, but not like 3 years old!) could drink with their parents permission in the presence of their parents?

I don't feel like Googling it (it's 4am here!)... but that I always thought was legal.

Most parents don't allow it, but that is their choice.

I was raised Catholic, and even though they watered it down we were able to partake in communion which let us have wine at 13.

Watching Monty Python and the search for the Holy Grail in youth group was fun to

In-laws are here. Having 30 people over to the house on Friday. Something called Tashlich at Ocean Beach later today, which is the best part of the whole thing. Marrying into a Jewish family means that the number of holiday celebrations has doubled which is fine but I don't really understand or truly enjoy any of them. And the food is generally awful, starchy, sweet and flavorless. Generally feel meh about all of it.

Anything vegan is kosher.   This includes salsa, Sriratcha, garlic, lemon and spices.

Also consider making this for the next get together:  http://ladyandpups.com/2014/03/25/faux-smoked-meat-pastrami-eng/

Get used to it, because it's really great for the kids to have the big family holidays. And usually the temple will have kid-friendly events like Chanukkah parties, and Purim parties where the kids get dressed up as characters.

All the salt goes into the water for the Seder plate, so there's none left over for the rest of the dishes.

Well, I'm not prying Grandma Rita away from her noodle kugle or kashiva knishkas (don't know how to spell any of these dishes.) And the liver paste is downright nasty. Thank god she's not making gefilte fish anymore.

The pastrami looks pretty good but labor intensive. I'm usually the big protein cook for the family so maybe I'll try that some other time. Going to do the standard brisket with a sweet marinade again this year. I've done savory briskets before but I could tell that they were a little bit disappointed, the sweet brisket is like turkey at thanksgiving, they want it the way they've always had it.

The wife and I love the big holidays. I just went from 2 to 4 (or more) and since we just about always host it means a lot of work. Don't know if the kids are going to love it but we're trying it out. Older one (3.5) is at a kid service right now. Haven't done Purim yet but I'm waiting for my first reading of the whole magilla. I understand that I get to drink a lot.
