Thank you!

I'd like to thank everyone who came on Thursday night.  It's very comforting to be able to spend the evening of Rivka's yahrtzeit with so many friends who knew her so well.

And thank you to Dafna and Lisa, for the wonderful talks that you gave.

Thank you also to all the people who helped out with refreshments, with setting things up, and with other things.

In addition, I want to thank everyone who came to the aliyah l'kever on Friday morning.

And thank you to those who weren't able to come, but were with us in spirit.

Shavua tov!
