On Pesach – with a straw. During the year – with a spoon. Why? I don’t know, I didn’t even know that they made lebens during the year until I was about fifteen… it might have something to do with our pesach silverware being much heavier.March 14, 2018 10:34 am at 10:34 am #1489195Yserbius123Participant

@Joseph He wasn’t a Rov himself, but he was from a Rabbonish European family. And even though he never really had the opportunity to learn in Yeshiva due to the Wars, he found people to teach him Torah and he himself was a massive Talmid Chacham who married a bas Talmid Chacham and, despite coming the the US with nearly nothing, raised his children in a Shomer Torah U’Mitzvos home where they grew up, went to Yeshiva, and became Talmidei Chachamim in their own right.
I think he just found it easier to eat with a straw.March 15, 2018 6:07 pm at 6:07 pm #1491492streekgeekParticipant

My kids use a straw with the foil top on for the first half. Without the foil for the last half.March 15, 2018 6:16 pm at 6:16 pm #1491506MenoParticipant
I haven’t had a leben in ages, but my wife says that the proper way to do it is to shake it, poke a hole in the foil with a straw, and then drink it with a straw.March 15, 2018 6:44 pm at 6:44 pm #1491525
