Today I got to go shopping for groceries, thanks to J&C! I should be all provisioned up to get through the coming Deep Freeze.
Later, we all (Avdi, Jess, J&C, K, and I) lit the second light on four different menorahs! We ate a delicious dinner by J&C, and everyone spun dreidels. J and A opened their gifts from me ahead, while Avdi and K will be taking most of the other gifts with them to PA. Avdi and I watched a video of Ikar (The Bobs’ synagogue in LA) Kabbalat Shabbat with Curt Smith of Tears for Fears performing “Mad World” and other songs with Hazzan (Cantor) Hillel Tigay. Later I went home and lit my own menorah.
