Dear friends,

Last Friday night we gathered to celebrate Shabbat at Gyro Park – but our plans were somewhat derailed by the generosity of nature – a mist became a shpritz became a sprinkle… A few hardy souls turned out – 27 I think in total, and we had a lovely opportunity to schmooze for a while, welcome Mary Casselman into the tribe, and generally enjoy being together amongst the shpritzing under a canopy of trees! Mann Tracht, Un Gott Lacht” is an old Yiddish adage meaning, “Man Plans, and God Laughs.”  We will try again on the 21st – same location. Come and join us. Details to be posted next week.

This week in our sequence of Torah readings, we read the command Re’eh: SEE!  I have always loved this parashah. From the moment we awaken we can choose to see with an ayin tova – a good eye, or not.
