NHC Institute '09:Cones, soft-serve, study, & song

First, rav todot, many thanks, to my husband for doing all the driving on the way to the Franklin Pierce University, Ringe, New Hampshire. This not only enabled us to get here at a decent hour (since my husband is blessed with a sense of direction), it also spared me the necessity of testing out my driving ability for the first time since I broke both wrists last December. I'm going to try to help with the driving on the way home.

Second, I'm thoroughly enjoying being able to eat soft-serve ice cream in a cone in the fully-kashered and rabbinically-supervised cafeteria. Usually, I avoid both cones and soft ice cream because I don't know whether they're kosher.

Okay, now for the reason we're here: We came to the National Havurah Institute to study and hang out with other Jews.

I'm studying
  • the meaning of P'shat, so-called literal interpretation, and
  • modern ways of approaching the Shmittah year (with a teacher who studied the law of Shmittah last year, which was a Shmittah year, in Israel.) You may remember him from his comment to this post about last year's NYC Institute.

Go read the course descriptions on the NHC website, linked above, while I head off to a round-singing workshop. L'hitraot, see you later.

Here's the round-up of my posts about last year's NHC Institute.
