Welcome

Welcome to Yom Tov @ Your House!  Over the next year, you can expect to find posts here on how to create or enhance your family's celebrations of each of the Jewish Holidays at home.
In the main post for each holiday, you'll find everything from the basics of traditional home holiday observance, to extra customs to enhance your celebrations, ideas for making the holiday work for young children, family discussion prompts, art projects, and mp3 recordings of holiday songs and blessings.
I'm writing this blog for members of the Metro West Jewish Day School community, but feel free to share it with anyone who might be interested.  My hope is that this will become a community enterprise, with comments from parents, other teachers and local community supporters providing ideas and customs for others to adopt and adapt.
What would you like to see on this blog?  Let me know in the comments section!
