We're here in the home of chaos_wrangler and spouse-of-chaos_wrangler, in Queens. We've spent a quiet Shabbat here and at the house with family.

Some people have asked where the family has requested donations to be made. The charities they want donations to go to are:

-- Barnard College
-- The Joel Burstein Award Fund at Hunter College High School
-- The American Civil Liberties Union

We will be here in New York, sitting shiva in the Burstein house in Queens on Sunday afternoon. We'll be in Queens through Monday afternoon (if you wish to come by on Monday morning, please call first) and returning late Monday to Boston. As I mentioned in an earlier post, Michael will be sitting shiva in Brookline on Tuesday from 11 AM to 8 PM; on Wednesday from 11 AM to 3 PM and then from 6 PM to 9 PM; and on Thursday from 11 AM to 8 PM.
