This afternoon, while playing in the house, Raphaela found a Winter scarf;  she put it over her shoulders, told me that she was wearing tzitzit, and launched into an entire re-creation of the Gan morning singing and praying.

The first thing I did NOT want to do was say, "No sweetie, only Jewish boys wear tzitzit and can lead the prayers."  Instead I smiled, nodded my head and said, "Yes, that is tzitzit.  Can I hear the songs you sing at Gan?"

:) well, you did right, then, because at my shul women certainly do wear tzitzit and lead the prayers.

:) In fact my wonderful friend is always our High Holidays cantor, too, and I believe this is the first year in many years that she didn't have a little up there with her. I'm sure it was nice for her to sing without distraction, but I must admit I kind of missed the baby.
