Erev Shabbos, Parshas Yisro, in Ottawa!

2014-01-17 01:23:17 PM


Dear Friends,


A guten Shabbos kodesh - just recently arrived in Ottawa, where many of us will be spending Shabbos, since the PM's plane leaves from Ottawa at 6:45 pm. Special accommodations were made for Sabbath observant delegates, allowing us time to arrive at the Hangar where the jet will be taking off. We had to drop off our luggage at the Hangar today, before Shabbos, in order to expedite our coming late.


This trip means missing my family and my kehilla for Shabbos, but it is a sacrifice that I believe is well worth it. I will be back in Toronto, be"H, before next Shabbos, so I only plan to miss one weekend with you.


It's appropriate for me to give a shout out to Raffi Rutman who will be celebrating his aufruf this Shabbos in shul. Mazel tov to Raffi and to the kallah, Chaviva Augenblick, and mazel tov to the Augenblicks and Rutmans, two wonderful BAYT families.


If you'd like to see my past divrei Torah for Parshas Yisro, you can check them out on koshertube, here, here, and here.


Look forward to updating you soon!


Shabbat Shalom, Good Shabbos,
