Will I Or Won’t I?

The suspense is well, not exactly killing me, but I am curious to know if I will be able to pronounce the name of the new shevet in Bnei Akiva. For those of you blissfully unaware, every year the ninth graders receive their name, which they will carry with them for the rest of their lives. I still get insulted when people ask me which shevet I am in, as I was a member of NCSY in high school and not Bnei Akiva. Israelis sort of shrug when I say that I don’t know.

My oldest is 20, and his shevet name is Lavi. I was thrilled to hear it – because it doesn’t have a reish (the Hebrew letter for R, which is pronounced guttarally) or a chet (a Hebrew letter with no equivalent in English, which sounds as if you are about to spit) and I actually know what it means.

Motzei Shabbat they will announce the name for my 14 year old. Will I or won’t I?
