I’ve got plenty to say, but not enough time to blog at length just now! (Lucky you…)
I do have just enough time to say that Susan and I had a very nice two day break for Shabbat and Shavuoth. We went to some of the shiurim at our local shul, the highlights of which were performed – and the emphasis is on performed – by Rabbi Gavriel Friedman. We went to two of his sessions, and they were excellent. (For those with a knowledge of the UK scene, think Y Y Rubinstein, but with an NY accent, and a musical bias. I will never be able to hear the Bee Gees ‘Stayin’ Alive’ now, without thinking of the Rav’s shiur.) Superb. If you get a chance, go and see him.
Have a good week one and all.
