Blogging the National Havurah Comm. Institute 2008

I'm happy to report that we arrived at the National Havurah Committee Institute 2008 in one piece.

One of the nice things about blogging is that I can thank my husband not only publicly, but internationally, for driving for hours through one of the worst thunderstorms I've ever seen. By the time we finally arrived at the Franklin Pierce University campus in Ringe, New Hampshire, I was practically ready to say a shehecheyanu! Rav todot, sweets!

I have about two seconds to discuss this first day of classes, as it's dinner time in the dining hall. Judith Plaskow's and Martha Ackelsberg's class, "The Unfinished Revolution: Jewish Feminism in a 'Post-Feminist' Age," is discussing what's been accomplished and what remains to be accomplished by the Jewish feminist movement. My other class is "Diversity and Rupture: The 'Parting of the Ways' Between Judaism and Christianity," taught by Adele Reinhartz. No time to talk now--see you tomorrow!
