sitting down for a meal of cholent
instead of porridge. Or maybe
the princess was sleeping on
hundreds of mattresses atop a
piece of matzah, instead of a pea.

#46) Learn a new bracha.
Jews are obligated to say a bless-
ing before eating or drinking
anything (not just bread and
wine), which is one good way of
remembering that we should al-
ways be grateful for having
enough to eat.
There also are brachot to be
said before smelling fragrances,
upon witnessing natural won-
ders or remarkable phenomena,
upon hearing thunder, putting
on a new garment, or seeing a

#49) Spend one evening or af-
ternoon doing something you
vowed you would never, ever do.
You've always said you hate Is-
raeli dancing, but give it a try
(the Jewish Community Center
in West Bloomfield has Israeli
dancing every Wednesday night).
You swore you would never learn
Hebrew after all those awful af-
ternoons you spent in Hebrew
school. But try calling your syn-
agogue or temple, or the Agency
for Jewish Education, and ask-
ing what Hebrew classes are of-
fered. You insist you loathe
eggplant, but make a dish of Is-
raeli eggplant salad. You may
still hate it, but at least you can
say you gave it a try.
