I don’t want to leave you hanging in there. So here is a quick post.
Things have been very busy. Work is getting busy by the minute and is not leaving much strength at night to write the blog, but don’t worry I will find the strength back. I’m getting plenty of responsibility which together with the language barrier adds to the challenge. I feel like I'm in a good place.
The shipment arrived today (Oct. 16) with a 45 minute warning. You would think that something that left more than 3 months ago (July 8) from Pittsburgh with a cost of some thousands of dollars could simply give you a day or two in advance, right? Wrong! It didn’t! What is this box doing here? I don’t know ask those other 90 boxes… :)
Sukkot has been beautiful. It’s such a happy environment seeing everyone celebrate it. I would like to describe later with more detail the experience. It’s just wonderful to see so many Sukkot, and have family, friends visiting as well as being invited by friends. I’m so happy we are experiencing the chagim (holidays) in Israel. And by the way we celebrated 1 day only (vs. 2 anywhere else in the world). Only in Israel.
We will be spending Shabbat at Holon with Israeli friends from Mexico.
