Ah yes, the old Jewish tradition of sucking eggs… 😂👏 But seriously, did you know Jews around the world hollowed and decorated eggs for holidays and celebrations? 💃🎉💖 It was even traditional to combine it with calligraphy and cover an egg in miniature Hebrew script. In honour of this Shabbat when we read Song of Songs, here’s my first (but not last) try at calligraphed eggs: chapter 1 of Song of Songs. Yes, it’s dyed with henna! And yes, those are chickens in the background! 😂🐓🍳💕 Shabbat shalom!
Really tempted to do this for Easter. My grandpa was Czech and gave each of the grandchildren a pysanky egg shortly before he died so they have always been a bit special to me. Of course mine would not look nearly as good or intricate but it might be nice to start a new tradition.
