A great way to start the day after Yom Kippur.

The modern cloakroom


Susan and I were at a lovely Sheva Brachot last night. When it was time to sit down and eat, some of the guests deposited their cellphones in the hall, rather than take them to the table. Very polite. Very nice.

Looking at the assembled phones, I was struck by the idea that this was the 21st century version of the cloakroom.


[Many thanks to Sharon and Avi for their hospitality. And for spicing up the chicken wings!]
