Shelter-in-Place Journal, Day 244

We had to rush our trip to the Farmers’ Market today to get home for the Shir Hadash Book Club; Diane’s the coordinator and had to handle the Zoom logistics until Rabbi Aron could join in. Today’s book was Jews and Words by Amos Oz and Fania Oz-Salzberger. Their thesis is that knowledge of Jewish texts (the Bible and Talmud, especially) is what kept Judaism going after the exile and that it’s still the most important factor today – even for non-believers like them. The discussion was lively.

In the afternoon, we tested our faith by cutting each other’s hair (to be more accurate, Diane cut as much of her own hair as she could see and trusted me to handle the back of her head). We’re still speaking. :-)

And we started watching Ted Lasso this evening – we pulled ourselves away after two episodes.

All in all, a nice and relaxing day.
