Happy Passover to all the Jewish folks here, I hope your holiday is happy and ya'll are blessed. I am Native American and Pow Wow season starts here in the Northeast in a few weeks, so I am excited about that. Let the Dancing and Drumming begin ;D

Thank you, everyone, for your good wishes. Passover has many names in our tradition, and one is "Festival of Springtime" - so to everyone, happy Springtime (the only pretty ring time!) and happy springtime festivals.

It's Yiddish for grandmother.

How about the Mead Bubeleh? Or the Mead Bubee? ;D

Pewter and Talon, thank you!

Dan, Bubaleh is Yiddish derived from the Hebrew "bubah", or dolly. So "bubaleh" means "little doll", a term of endearment. I often call my youngest doughter and my grandchildren that. Don't get me started on my grandchildren, I'll chew your ear off. :D Bubee is sometimes used instead of Bubeh for "Grandma", usually by Americans (you're on the right track). I don't know where "bubeh" originated; the Hebrew is "safta". Now teach me something in Irish, please.

Oh, man, I'd better go back to County Nana and look up all the O'Mearas there...

My great-grandfather said we were kicked out of Ireland for throwing rocks and stealing sheep. (I scored 2 on that quiz; very male-oriented quiz it is).

Welp... for what it's worth, "my trousers are on fire"... :o :o :o

Not sure how laying looking at the clouds and being a monkey correlate to that... ??? ??? ???

No I didn't pick the word that looked like porn, I picked the one that looked like searching...

And I didn't pick the verse about being on the lady's back... ::) ::) ::)

Maybe some mead will put the fire out? ;D ;D ;D

Maybe mazers just aren't very good Irishmen...

With a smile,
Hop

Oh my goodness, Dan, now all I want to do is go visit Ireland. At least in Dublin I'll be able to find kosher groceries to keep me going while touring. I have no Jewish roots in Ireland; my Irish ancestors were Catholic. But the second link especially made me very curious to see Jewish life in Ireland and visit the sites.

The writeup on Shalom Ireland made me want to order the CD, so I think I will! There is a fascination with Celtic music here; several bands exist, both folkloric and modern, who perform Irish or Irish/Jewish fusion music regularly. And klezmer does meld somehow with the eerie melancholy so present in much of Celtic music. There is also a klezmer band whose musicians are Dutch and entirely non-Jewish: their name is (predictably) The Goyim. The nothern hilltop town of Tsfat, where I lived for five years, hosts a yearly klezmer festival and The Goyim were guest performers there not too long ago. (But the band I've always liked best was an all-woman quintet called Bnot Chava - the Daughters of Eve - who did a rocking, feminist verson of "If I Were a Rich Man.")
