Nope not a lick- I just have some of the prayers memorised. Hubs is fluent though! Teaches Hebrew all levels all ages at this moment. He is at a Bat Mitzvah as we speak of one of his students. He is responsible for helping the student write their sermon. I call him the "sermon doctor".
my reading is still very good, but my ability to hold a conversation in Hebrew no longer exists.
Ok then. Here are 2 true Brit Milah stories posted on the Andy forum:
1. We had son #1's here in the house with friends and family. I think my dad or some relative was taking the video( and no you can't see anything). Well that video ended up getting copied and used in a synagogue class to explain the ritual to students. Right before son#1 started the school we had to go "nicely request" that it not be used anymore. Poor guy; can you imagine what would have happened?
2. When son#1 was 3, we went to a good friend's son's bris and sure enough they also videoed it( what is it with the male persuasion at these things- for posterity?)Well
that video ended up being the substitute for my son's in the class. BUT who do you think you hear almost throughout the tape? Number 1 son saying- wine I want wine over and over and over again. He still likes Manishewitz to this day No accounting for taste( ok I like the sweet stuff too.....)
I've never been to one yet, I'm not sure I want to
