Counting the days
At Lincoln Square Synagogue, where I have my classroom, we were privileged to have, this whole year, four wonderful Kolel boys from Israel. Whenever their schedule allows them, they drop in on my demos. One of them has nicknamed me "Chaval Al Hazman", Hebrew slang for "there are no words". I look forward to our date at my house on Shavouot. Last night one of them told me something that touched me no end: "Do you know why I am counting the Omer? Because each day gets us closer to our Shavouot date at your place". How cute is that? Now, you see why I adore them?
