Simcha! – Jerusalem, April 2009

Friday! What a surprise. What a welcome surprise. Our plan is to have a restful Shabbat – no, they are not all restful! – and chill out on our own, in between a couple of trips to shul. Of course, ‘trip’ rather overstates it, given we have never lived so close to our house of prayer; we can almost roll out of bed, do a hop, skip, and jump, and be grabbing a siddur from the shelves.

But before any such spiritual encounters – and the Friday night service is often a wonderful, spiritually uplifting experience – there are some mundane, earthly matters to be dealt with. Like links. So here you go:

Shabbat Shalom!
