A B’racha for Barack? The Obama Kiddush

L'Chaim. L'Axelrod. L'Plouffe. Etc.

L'Plouffe. L'Axelrod. L'Chaim.

By Mandy Katz

Raise a glass tonight and every night through January 20. You don’t have to know Hebrew to intone this one (though it helps if you daven in a leftward direction):

Barack atah Illinois,
Eloheinu melech ha’olam,
Hoo-ray p’ri ha-electoral landslide.

Amen.

  1. I’m going to need more wine to make it to January 20.

  2. Would that be wine from Israel, Danny? I’m no oh-no-file, so maybe you or someone else can check out some vintages (see IsraelWineBlog.com) and tell me which are worthwhile…

    Come to think of it, wine and Judaism would be a great subject for the new food and food-history section we’re adding to the magazine (that would be Moment). Be sure to see our next issue for the scoop on chicken soup — not so much how to make it as how to think about it.

  3. I’ll raise my Obamatinis and Mavericktinis to that :-)
