2) Last night I was originally supposed to attend the blogger’s get-together in Petach Tikva.
However, instead, I ended up spending the evening learning Rashi on Parshat Breishit with a certain Shiputzim child (ACSC).
After we finished learning, ACSC graciously and sweetly thanked me and then added:
“Actually, Imma, it’s for your own good that you didn’t get to go to that blogging thing. Don’t you know that you’re not supposed to go to strangers’ houses? I mean, what would you have done if they’d offered you candy…”
In any event, I really enjoyed our marathon learning session. Not only was it great to have an opportunity to learn the parsha, but ACSC always asks thought-provoking questions and has many intelligent insights to share.
So, thank you, ACSC, and shavua tov and chodesh tov to all!
