Saying Goodbye

It is with great sadness that I am announcing that Moshe is moving to Germany to be a Rabbi. Moshe and I became great friends when I was in pre ulpan. He let me try his nuts and he would correct my homework. We would even have deep and intense conversations regarding Reform and Orthodox Judaism. During our final hang out session I asked him what if I want to talk to you when you're in Germany....he said he will call me and then asked for my number. So if he does decide to call me then I will let you all know.

Now for the exciting stuff. Last night a bunch of us went out to a Karaoke bar close to school for someones birthday. Now, I have never been to a Karaoke bar but it was a lot of fun!!! I got to sing last dance with Marina. We were amazing...not going to lie. I was in a weird mood yesterday and going out in the evening definitely made everything better! It was so great finally having everyone out and about together and not feeling the pressures of work and school. Yay for all of us. Tonight is Shabbat yet again, and I am going to try and keep my phone off and not go on my computer at all tomorrow. As of now the plan is to go to the park after services at HUC in the morning and read the book that I have to read for my education class as well as getting my Hebrew homework done. Wish me luck on that adventure.

It was so exciting last week when I finally got to see Roby and KK on skype! KK looked soooo excited to see me! She sang to me you are my sunshine and at the end said "and please don't take, my auntie Jaqui away!" i can't tell you how happy that made me :) Also, thanks to Oma for my beautiful note she sent me. I started to cry I was so excited when i got it....i think you should all learn by her example.

I am also happy to announce that I will be going to Russia or the Ukraine for Passover in the spring and will be working with Israeli summer camp counselors! I am soooooo excited! Anyhoo...i think it is nap time before I got to temple tonight. I am going to Shira Chadasha which is the Modern Orthodox synagogue for services, so I will let you all know how it is.

Lots of love!
PS thank you to my lovely sister Rebecca who has been posting comments to the blog postings.... :)
