The 40 Year Old Bat Mitzvah

Sybil’s Way

Posted in learning hebrew, Uncategorized by Juliet on October 15, 2010

Sybil Zuckerman is the oldest member of our adult B’nai Mitzvah class. She is a very motivated, enthusiastic student and her Hebrew reading is smooth, articulate, and simply lovely.

She practices a lot!

Sybil said: “Put your worksheet next to your toaster. In the morning, while you’re waiting, read through. By the time the toast pops, you said it at least once.”

I did it today and since I like my toast on a very dark setting, I got one round of my Torah portion in! What a great feeling of accomplishment before 7 a.m.

(The other thing I learned is that while the rest of the world is fearing carbs, Jews are still eating toast.)

I had already heard good news as I checked my voicemail messages while walking the dog at what Celebrity Fit Club drill sergeant Harvey Walden would call “0-Dark-Thirty,” so I think it’s going to be a great day.
