We praise You, Eternal God, Sovereign of the universe, for giving us life, for sustaining us, and for enabling us to reach this time of joy.(In case you're wondering, yes, my dad and I did go to Barnes and Noble again this year, and in a break with tradition, his friend Bobbi joined us. Too unfocused to do any serious browsing, the three of us wandered through the store, looked at books without really seeing them, chatted, and just spent some holiday time together. After about an hour, we returned to the temple for the rest of the afternoon.)
@JewishSpecialEd Grew up in Somerset. 12 Webster Rd. off JFK Blvd. Temple Emanuel-El, Edison--home cong.Because it was just a few hours before Kol Nidre, we resumed our conversation last night and it continued today:
@JanetheWriter Small world. I grew up in Scotch Plains. Temple Shalom in Plainfield my home cong. Hope your holiday was meaningful.
By far the best addition to the conversation, though, came from @RebeccaSchorr, a mutual friend whom I knew online for a long time before we met in real life. She chimed in a few minutes ago with this:@JewishSpecialEd Smaller world...I was with Jody, Daniel and Rachel L******** at break-the-fast tonight -- at Jody's parents' house!
Yup...gotta love that #jewishgeography!

Please take good care of all of them, especially Superman Sam, so he can return to his normal life with his sibs and his ‘rents in Chicago and stay there…except for treks across the border to camp or to visit his Bubbe and Zayde.
