Mazal Tov on the Pidyon Ha'ben of Matanya Yisrael Miller - The boy is ours!!!

FNQ - Announcement

It was with great joy and excitement that I reclaimed my son from Rabbi Aharon Katz yesterday.   The ceremony went rather smoothly as the decision whether or not to buy him back was fairly simple (he is just too cute not to keep him).  We celebrated the fulfillment of this mitzvah with our family, friends and Rabbeim from the Gruss kollel.  Now that he is fully ours we can begin implementing our parenting plan which we culled through hours of research in countless parenting books.  May it be G-d's will that we merit raising him in the path of Torah and Mitzvot!!!   Enjoy the pictures and links to the speeches.  (I hope to put video up soon)

What do you think Aviva should we buy him or just keep the coins and get a good night sleep tonight?

It looks easy but laying on a silver plate is exhausting, you try it some time.

What do you think?

Binyamin - always looking for a good question


  1. He is so insanely cute, in case you didnt know that already. And I say lets keep him - although I wouldn't mind putting in a condition for the Kohen that he gets him between the hours of 1 AM and 6 AM.

  2. I say keep him. That is, unless you want to send him to Staten Island for safe keeping. We have a few Kohanim here that could keep an eye on him! Beautiful baby, beautiful parents, and beautiful speeches by all!
    Love you!

  3. But then again, Highland Park is a nicer & safer place for that gorgeous baby! Mazal tov, I can't wait to get my hands on him. Counting the days til you get here! Love u! nishikot!

  4. oh my gosh! he is beautiful - just to go along with everyone else's sentiments - there is plenty of room in my apt :-) i think he would enjoy :-)
    mazal tov!!!
