or happy new year esp to all that are jewish
last night (erev Rosh Hashanah) we decided that since we were way too tired to make the trip down to Wasau where we have been attending services after the fiasco a few years ago of the local temple having someone trample all over my wife and I with remarks you un warrented there was no ways we were siting through services we left and realy have not been since well to get back on track last night being tired we went back after all we were too tired tired to go elsewhere and the worst that could realy happen is that we would decided to walk back out again
so we arrived with low expectations and thankfully things exceeded expectations . Yea that realy was not very hard, but things went well the party that offended us so mightl;y before apologized a pleasent surprise and many sought us out to say s heloo and make various small talk. Th etemple has had the same visting rabbi here for nuber of years (he was there when we walked out that yom kippur about 3 or was it 4 years ago
The Rabbi spung some realy insightful sermon including an interesting midrash about the sacrfice of Issac (which for some reason totaly passing MY understanding is the Torah portion for Rosh Hashanah but I digress) from the POV of that ram that stepped up last mintue to pinch hit for Issac, at the cost of HIS life. We really must track down the Rabbi and find the source of that one.
all in all things went well and we may well attend other functions when a rabbi is present . I suppose with my "friends" at nimbusters I have just invited down another torrent of abuse down on poor susan the president of the temple but that is just not my problem
