Today we went to the Poleg Nature Reserve near Netanya. The big attraction is this sand dune that the kids can roll down:
Two kids stayed there to dig a hole while the rest of us went down to the beach. As we approached, my five-year-old said, “I see tisha yarchei leida.” I guess those kites do look like moons, but there were a lot more than nine.
Explanation for non-Hebrew speakers: She was quoting a line from a song sung at the Passover seder referring to nine months of pregnancy. In Hebrew, the word for month and moon is the same.
