I didn't expect to become so emotional but today at Shabbat morning services at Temple Emmanuel, I cried when I saw our friends Clem & Judy Nahum and Michael & Sylvia Golding. It felt like a homecoming. So warm, friendly, comfortable. I love this community.
It was also great to finally meet Rabbi Jeffrey Kamins, who went on sabbatical in 1997-1998 allowing us to live in his flat, drive his auto, and Mark to work at Emmanuel. We were also warmly welcomed by Rabbi Jackie Ninio who we knew in Cincinnati when she was a rabbinical student at HUC.
We had an amazing Shabbat dinner last night with our hosts, Cyndi and Michael Freiman, their children and several other wonderful guests from all over the world. More on that another time.
