A Bit O' the Irish, Jewish Style

Yom rishon, 28 Adar 5773.


Stunt Man played a fifteen minute "Irish Set" for his brother's wedding, staying in character throughout.  He was so effective at bringing joy to his brother and his new sister-in-law and their guests that one attendee quipped, "This is the first time in my life I've regretted not being born Irish."

Well, G-d gathered us in from the four corners of the world into the Jewish family for some reason or other.  Could be to add a few songs, and a little color.

Here's a short sample of brotherly love.



Hat tip to the band Gaelic Storm and to Josh Polak, who taught the lad nearly everything he knows.

Bat Aliyah: It is indeed fun watching them grow up. They are creative and funny, and they like each other. This is one of the brachot I give to all of my friends: May all of our children grow fully into themselves, and may they be each other's very good friends.

Varda: You were missed, my dear. May we share many long, healthy, happy years to attend each other's smachot -- either in person or virtually.

Feige Rochel: Thank you for your lovely words. It means a lot when someone "inside" gives such a compliment!

Anonymous: I don't know if the IDF will give them time to celebrate St. Pat's. For some reason, it's not a national holiday here in Israel. ;-) Thank you for your encouraging words!
