Rosh Hodesh at "The Moshav"

My girlfriend has been trying to get me to join her for Rosh Hodesh at "The Moshav" (Moshav Mavo Modi'in) for years!

She finally found a way. She told the woman who organizes the event about me and then she (the organizer) called and invited me to come speak to the women this Rosh Chodesh (Elul).

My friend offered to drive me there and back.

How could I say no?

So, this morning, still exhausted from my niece's beautiful wedding last night, I went to speak at "The Moshav."

The women were clearly moved by my presentation.

I never saw such strong reactions from so many people.

When I see a response like today's, I know I must be doing something right.

Please daven (or send happy, healing thoughts) for RivkA bat Teirtzel.

With love and optimism,

a shame I chose not to attend. had I know you were going to be there, maybe I would have made an effort to travel the long distance.

I came in 1979 at age 16 so Ranting Zelda, ?I think I top you on this one.

Batya -- both English and Hebrew

I used the same outline that I used last month, when I spoke in Hebrew for the Elazar Rosh Chodesh group)

Mikimi -- it is awesome that you came at such a young age! But no "competitions" here. I prefer to celebrate everyones accomplishments without anyone feeling like they have to "top that." ;-)
