It’s been a blessing and a joy to spend Shabbat Shalach in Sacramento at Beth Shalom with Rabbis Nancy and David! “Jews and ‘Roos: Views from Down Under” was the topic I was able to address during the melodic, uplifting service last night. This morning Donald and I enjoyed a unique condensed-and-yet-kavanah-filled Shacharit led soul-fully by Rabbi Nancy before she welcomed us to share in Torah Study. We explored courageous exploring – from the “scouts” of our parashah to Traditional Aboriginal Owners supporting Archaeological surveys in remote Australian lands with Donald, to surveying our own “inner landscapes” and sending our focus within to bring the best of ourselves out. It was a marvelous morning enriched by reconnecting with friends from long ago…
Tomorrow we look forward to reconnecting with others from years gone by – and then to reconnecting with current students!
