Torah! Dora! Torah!

Gabby is a huge fan of Dora the Explorer. I'm not sure exactly how she came to be such a fan, since I'm pretty sure she doesn't watch the TV show (I'm not even sure we have that channel). It must be something in the air, kind of like the Princess virus that infects girls of preschool age.

Gabby also started going to a Jewish preschool, which she (and we) love.

So I suppose it was just a matter of time before she put those two things together and came up with ---- Dora Torah!

I have no idea whether Dora is Jewish (my guess is no), but nonetheless, I kind of like the idea of Dora having adventures in ancient Palestine: "Vamonos, Moses! Salimos de Egypt ahorita!"

I think she could be on to something there.

Welcome to the club! Mira will tell us quite clearly that Diego and Dora are Christian, they celebrate Christmas, but they are still our friends. I think they are her ultimate example of the love we feel for those who are not Jewish...

Okay, I'm loving the "Tora Tora Tora" reference in your title, and the back of my head is mumbling about how preschoolers dive into culture both unbidden and bidden, but I haven't gotten far enough to comment coherently. I think I'll close with an "I love Gabby, she's awesome".
