Brief Rosh Hashana Report

As I noted on Friday, this weekend was Rosh Hashana, the holiday that ushers in the Jewish New Year. Nomi and I had a nice holiday. We went to services at Kadimah-Toras Moshe in Brighton. On shabbat, we had lunch with friends who live a short walk away from the synagogue. On Sunday, we walked an hour and a half to have lunch with friends in Cambridge. Our feet and legs ache, but the exercise was good.

As I always tell people, the good part of having the holidays fall on the weekend is that you don't have to take time off from work to observe them. The bad part is that you lose your weekend for other things.

I've done my best to catch up with the blogs I read, but I might not have seen everything vital, and for that, I apologize. Time marches on, and we can't rewind the clock.
