Ki Yachol Nuchal!

New olah; mom and wife. In small ways, every day, trying to rectify the error in judgement of my zaydies, the meraglim. "See these big grapes? We can make really big wine!"

Nineteen degrees is nice in Neve Daniel. I’m just saying…

Yom sheni, 26 Cheshvan 5769.

Today is one of those days that reminds me of some of the physical aspects I love about living here in Israel, especially on “my mountain.”  (Even though there are no Cascades or Rockies here, Neve Daniel — at 997 meters above sea-level — is the highest-elevation community in the country.)

At a crisp 66.2 degrees Farenheit, it is a good day to have a bite of breakfast outside. 

Dear Baltimore Homies (who have not yet decided that it’s time to be moving to warmer climes):

Is that YOUR house going up in my back yard?  Looking forward to seeing your name beside the door.

 Time to sit outside and learn a little Mesillat Yesharim with my best friend.  Join us for coffee and a learning seder soon?

    That is cold.

    Jack, Jack, Jack… Perspective is everything. Unless you live in Florida or Yuma, Arizona, 66 degrees is not your usual late-November weather. In Baltimore, for instance, it’s a cozy 26.

    When my daughter told me yesterday that she was cold, I laughed my head off. “Put some socks on and go check the temperature in NY”. I actually wore a sweater to wor today, but left it in the car because it was to warm by the time I drove to work (10 minutes from the house).

    Los Angeles isn’t exactly the Arctic.

    At least you’re stranded in the chill of Galut with some very fine Yidden, Jack.
