Shabbat Shalom! I'm writing this having just returned from Jerusalem. Shabbat has descended upon the city. My extra Shabbat soul was full, as I worshipped with a full house at Kehillat Kol Hanishama, and sang Shabbat songs and had dinner with my former Bar Mitzvah and clarinet teacher Garri Regev.
That I am in love (with this country) is an understatement. That I am rediscovering its beauty and wonders is so meaningful.
Of course, I have been blogging about it. Catch my reflections, my pictures, and some links to my colleagues' blogs about our Rabbinic convention. All here at Or Am I? (my blog).
