It didn’t start out very promising.
Somehow though, I managed to score myself a berth in the semi-finals at the dreidel competition hosted last week by the Contemporary Jewish Museum in San Francisco.
The best part of that was I got to say "Looks like I spun my way into the semis" in the video.
If you don’t get that joke, there’s really very little hope for you. (viewer discretion advised).
Even without that minor excitement , it was an interesting evening, complete with an arts and crafts table (make your own totes! only at a museum, right?), some fair trade Judaica products, and a chocolate-making demonstration — none of which made the final cut, alas, but which still merit a mention.
Still with me? Check out the competition:
