Warning-Only for Jews

Our son, Stretch (10) was in Orthodox day school until the middle of third grade. Then, we had to put him in public school for reasons that aren’t funny so I'll leave them out. He is currently in fifth grade. We would like him to go back to day-school for middle school. With that goal in mind, he is tutored weekly by a Rabbi. I follow-up during the week with review. Here is what transpired at our last review.

Stretch: “Ka-Dosh. Kadosh. Oh, like ‘Kadosh, Kadosh Kadosh’ (doing the requisite foot motions)."

Me (encouragingly): “That’s great! So what does Kadosh mean?”

Stretch: “Jump?”

Time to seriously consider Catholic school.

Better than Ka-Bosh

So what does it mean? If you tell us, then the post won't be only for Jews anymore. :o)

It means "holy." (The three-peat is from Isaiah 6:3: "Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts; the whole world is filled with His glory.")

It was a good guess!
