Winston's New Kippah

You may recall one of my earlier posts about Winston when LO asked if her favourite teddy bear was Jewish. Since then, Winston has become a regular part of our Jewish community. He attends Shabbat services with us, has been to Hebrew school, and he even golfs with our Rabbi.

Not long ago, LO decided that his regular golf clothes (khaki pants, a polo shirt, and a baseball hat) were not nice enough for Shabbat clothes, so off we were to buy Winston a new Shabbat outfit. And no respectable Jewish bear could be caught at shul without a kippah...right?

LO was simply kvelling at Shabbat services over her little bear's new kippah and made sure that everyone saw it. (Me, on the otherhand...I still have that feeling of disbelief that I was actually sitting somewhere sewing a kippah onto a teddy bear's head.)

Special thanks to "Tante Ruth" for crocheting Winston his new kippah! Winston (and LO) love it.

Shabbat Shalom from the Orieyentas and the bear with a kippah.

Now that is funny! When he becomes Bar Mitzvah, will he begin to lay tefillin, too?

You mean his Bear Mitzvah, don't you. ;)

Talk about KVELLING. This was so wonderful and I can't tell you how much I/we have enjoyed it. I'm "saving as new", of course, to show all our guests at our annual tashlich luncheon. It's such a great photo too.
Love to all,
Tante Ruthy

(and don't think I didn't notice "not single anymore Mom".)

LOVE it. Malka calls it her "poo-pah" Maybe "baby" or "Dolly" or "Elmo" would like one - BRILLIANT idea!
