Tomorrow Night… What a night!

No Gravatar

Saturday night starts a great holiday for me-  Purim. (Purim means “Lots”- as in the lottery.  But, it was only after a few twists and turns that we managed to eke out a win with this lottery.)  My family tradition adds on a second day-  Shushan Purim, the name for the second day; most Ashkenazi Jews rarely celebrate it- for them, it’s a one day holiday.

So, last week, I described my reactions to our synagogue’s trip to Selma, Montgomery, Birmingham, and Atlanta.  I told you that we went with about 100 folks ranging in age from 5 to 90.  And, we were joined by students from George Washington University and from Birmingham.
