Not a joke setup, but an actual event, wherein Avdi and I got to meet Rabbis Karen and Daniel Bogard of CRC in person yesterday! They initiated and I set up the meeting “for coffee” and getting to know each other. They’re the first of hopefully many connections with CRC and its commendable social justice outreach programs, which I/we hope to be a part of. It was a very productive and worthwhile conversation. (Here’s a screenshot of R. Daniel rabbi-ing at Shabbat services, live-streamed this morning, and a previous one of R. Karen with Rabbis Daniel and Randy, and a Bar Mitzvah boy.)
Later, I got to help Avdi with office and house/garden jobs. I’m slowly learning my way around the tasks I can do for him, and how I can be most effective.
