First day of school

Jewish Studies is a fun class...

So, Jewish studies was amazing today... why you might ask? Well, the rabbi brought in some props to show us, including a Havdalah candle. Now, Havdalah candles are special because it is made up of two or more braided wicks, since the flame of a torch is required. Well, this candle didn’t just have 2 wicks, it had 36. Well, he decided to light it.

First, he had one of the guys stand on the desk and cover the smoke detector. Then he lit in. This wasn’t just a wimpy flame, this was a FLAME! So he tried to put it out by blowing on it, no luck. Then he tried to wave it around... even worse. It got a bit scary because there was smoke at this point, so we ended up filling a Kiddush cup with water and putting it out in there. The best part – in the middle of this the professor from next door comes in and tells us that we’re too loud. Doesn’t say anything about the candle, but we’re too loud.

Craziness indeed.
