Baby BooksteinThe shvitzing of naches just doesn’t stop here at the house that Jewlicious built! We’d all like to extend a hearty Mazal Tov to Long Beach Hillel Director Rachel Bookstein, Hillel Chaplain and Jewlicious poster Rabbi Yona Bookstein, and the whole Bookkstein clan on the birth of the latest Bookstein baby boy. BBB was born on the 5th of Elul 5766 (Aug. 29 2006) at 12:44 pm PST. He weighed in at 8lbs 6oz and stands 21 inches tall.

While Jews don’t name their boys until the bris which takes place 8 days after they are born, nothing prevents baby boy Bookstein from writing his first post on the inevitable baby Bookstein blog. Maybe baby boy Bookstein’s first blog post will be about his upcoming Long Beach bris and yes, it will inevitably be titled “Bouncing Baby Boy Bookstein Blogs his Beach Bris.”

Thank you! I’ll be here all week.
