Fine Arts Friday: 5773 Calendar Edition

As you may (or may not…) recall, every year my mother puts together a gorgeous family calendar, and the grandchildren prepare the artwork.

And so, in honor of Shavuot, here are the Shiputzim kids’ contributions (in ascending order, according to the young artists’ ages) to the 5773 calendar:

Jan2013 January 2013 (roughly corresponding to Shvat 5773)

Dec2012December 2012 (roughly corresponding to Kislev 5773) – The text comes from “Maoz Tzur”

As always, please feel free to click on the pictures for a closer view.

P.S. The latest Kosher Cooking Carnival is available here. Special thanks to Ilana-Davita for including my chocolate chip cake recipe. And speaking of Shavuot and cooking, the yom tov menu here in TRLEOOB (=the real life equivalent of our blog) includes – among many other things - the Shiputzim family’s favorite cheesecake, milchig lukshen kugel, and tuna croquettes.


  1. I'll have to remember this idea of a calendar of grandchildren's art when I have grandchildren.

    Love your children's contributions. And I like tuna croquettes, too.

    Shabbat Shalom and chag sameach.

  2. Lovely pictures! The croquettes sound good to me too!

    Shabbat Shalom and chag sameach!

  3. Leora and Ilana-Davita - Thank you! I hope you each had (or, rather, are having... :-) ) a wonderful chag!
