Rocking Mimouna @Magen David Synagogue

I learnt last night that Mimouna comes from the word “Emunah” which means faith. 


The Mimouna is the celebration at the end of Passover. 


It is a custom from the Jews who lived in Morocco who celebrated hand-in-hand with their Arab neighbors in peace and harmony


this celebration of faith, friendship, and peace that has now become standard in Jewish communities far and wide. 


In the light of the anti-Semitic instances yesterday with the caricature in the garbage New York Times and the Shooting at the Chabad synagogue in San Diego (exactly 6 months after the shooting at the Pittsburgh synagogue), I say:


Let us have faith in the one true G-d that he will redeem his loving people of all religions and utterly punish the haters and anti-Semites for the evil they are.

Haleli @Mimouna with Magen David Synagogue

Praise be our G-d, the Master of the Universe.


May he bless us with an abundance of good for the New Year after the Passover commemoration of our exodus from slavery to His redemption and the Holy Land of Israel.


Blessings, Peace, Health, Prosperity, and Joy!


What a lovely event with the community of Magen David Synagogue in Maryland.


My heart is uplifted by the song, dance, friendship, and faith in the Almighty. 😉

Happy Chametz Time Again

Thank you to Congregation Magen David for a wonderful end of Passover party.


The family, new friends, music, singing, dancing, and food made for a truly joyous evening.


Happy and thankful for the opportunity to be a part of it. 


Now counting up to Shavuot and the giving of the Torah. 


The Jewish people rock! 😉
