The weekend passed quickly, and pleasantly (if you ignore the power outage on Saturday morning); the computers stayed off all weekend, which accounts for a large part of the silence here.
Friday night, we went to the Reform Community Shabbat service at Congregation Beth Am. They have a very large campus and quite an interesting sanctuary. The service was good; the lecture (by Dr. David Ellenson of the Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion in Los Angeles was interesting but would have been much more interesting at half the length.
A detailed description of our weekend would probably be more interesting at one-tenth the length I might write, so I’ll stop!
