Seeing Double

Ruchama Schnaidman

The following isn’t information that Siman would be willingly share — he most definitely would not. But if you were to meet him, on a good day, of course, in which Mazel Brothers Superstore is filled with happy customers and the sun is shining, and ask him for his favorite month, the answer he would surely give would be: Sivan.

Tuesday, May 19, 2015

No question, no doubt. Sivan is the month that ranks highest on Siman’s list. And not only because his name sounds so similar to Sivan, but because Sivan is a month so filled with cheesecake and flowers and best of all: Twins! Yes, you heard that correctly. There is nothing that brings a smile to Siman’s usually serious face as much as twins. There’s something about the doubleness of doubles that makes his eyebrows twitch and his heart skip a beat.
