At least for one of us. Me. For those on the East Coast who wonder how Torah can survive on the Left Coast, you are invited to find out. I will be at Cong. Ahavas Yisrael (147-02 73rd Avenue, Kew Gardens Hills, Queens NY) this coming Shabbos, BE”H, reuniting with my old chavrusa Rabbi Heshy Welcher. He and a few of his mispallelim (Steve Brizel and Mark Frankel) are key figures in one of the more worthwhile blogs out there: Beyond BT. The new issue has an interview with me about Cross-Currents that might explain some of our writing and commenting policies.
The following Shabbos, Parshas Vayikra, I will be at Congregation Beth Hamedrosh in Wynnewood, PA, outside of Philadelphia. The theme of the Shabbos will be “Torah Judaism and Reason.”
Purim will take me back to Dallas.
I hope that some of our readers will join in these events, and come over and introduce themselves.
