NITTEL NACHT 2012


A NEW OLD TRADITION COMES TO BETH EL!
OUR NITTEL NACHT BASH
MORE FUN THAN DAVENING (ALMOST)!!!!



FIRST RABBI SRULI AWED EVERYONE WITH
HIS SLEIGHT OF HAND CARD TRICKS

Ira carefully guards his chosen card…

Javier attempts to distract Sruli, but…

…the card has been magically transferred to Sruli!!! AMAZING!!!


THIS WAS FOLLOWED BY THE INTENSE
STACKING OF THE CUPS COMPETITION

First, Howie is pummeled by Sruli’s cup stacking prowess…

So Ira steps up to the plate and seems to gain an cup advantage over Sruli…

…but as luck would have it, Ira’s cups came tumblin’ down!!!



AND THEN CAME THE BLOWING OF THE CARDS

Libby shows her stuff

That’s his real hair between the hats!!!

And Libby emerged victorious!!!



THE CANDID CAMERA PICKED UP A RARE EVENT

Gamemaster Robyn innocently began to shuffle the cards

AND THEN DISASTER STRUCK

But true to form she regained her composure and re-sorted the deck.




WE WERE ALL EXHAUSTED – BUT THE FUN KEPT COMING!!
NEXT WAS THE SLIDING OREO EVENT!!!

Gamemaster Robyn carefully places the Oreo on her forehead – she must maneuver it to her mouth.

UNFORTUNATELY, HER NOSE GETS IN THE WAY!!!

Not deterred in the least, she grabs the Oreo with her LEFT EYE!!

INHALING FORCEFULLY, she positions the cookie below her nose.

and finally victory seems so, so close.

but in one last desperate attempt, the cookie pushes away to freedom.



NEXT IT WAS IRA’S TURN…

Ira taunts the cookie by showing with his tongue where it will end up.

And he sends it en-route to his nose.

And he too grabs it with his left eye – victory seems nigh!!

BUT OH NO… This time the Oreo chooses to leap to freedom as Ira unwisely dozes off.


THE EVENING ROLLED ALONG WITH
THE APPLE BALANCING COMPETITION!!

A very young girl shows us how to stack 5 apples-Unfortunately she was disqualified because she refused to move her hands away from them when she finished.

So Wiily showed us how it is done – and then sat back to kvell over his stacking ability!!


CHEf LISA MADE ENOUGH FOOD TO FEED AN ARMY!!!

A spread that satisfied every
Nittler, bigger and littler!!!!

MMMMMMMMMMMMM…


THE KIDS WERE IN A GAME WORLD OF THEIR OWN


The evening ended late into the night with a rousing game of Pictionary. Due to your webmaster’s inability to stay awake, there are no photos of the game, although UNCONFIRMED sources report that the GIRLS won. Whatever.
