I wanted so much to send out invitations (via email) a month in advance.
It did not happen.
The radiosurgery just messed me up.
I finally got all the details (date/place/time) worked out and the invitation is ready, but I still have to put together the list of emails, which just takes time....
The Bat Mitzvah is 18 days away and I still have not sent out a single invitation!
My daughter will, BE"H, be reading Parshat Balak and sharing her drasha at Shirat Sarah, my women's tefillah group, which meets at Pardes.
Davening will start at 9:15, Torah reading at 9:45 (approx.), followed by her drasha. Kiddush will be around 11:20.
מי שבא ברוך הבא
(Israeli expression: Whoever comes is welcome!)
Please daven (or send happy, healing thoughts) for RivkA bat Teirtzel.
With love and optimism,
Opening Bell of Eggnog Season
