But once a year, the Havurah (group of friends) to which we belong flies in the face of this feature; instead, we add a day to our Thanksgiving celebration. That day, of course, is today, and so we’ll be working on our leftover supply, while playing games and chatting. It’s a far better way to celebrate than fighting the crowds at the mall!
Then later this evening, we’ll go to shul for brief Shabbat services followed by a musical evening with the New Orleans Klezmer AllStars, who will be playing at Klezmer Mania tomorrow at Zellerbach Hall in Berkeley. Apparently, there’s a family connection between one of the AllStars and a member of Shir Hadash, so we get a free concert.
