Purim Day--the afternoon and evening were great!

Larry was kind enough to invite us to crash a Seudat Purim at the home of friends. (See the comments to this post.) So off we went to the wilds of Central Jersey, where we received a royal welcome, along with umpteen other guests. The last time I saw a dining room so tightly packed was the last time my parents held a Passover Seder in South Jersey, before they made aliyah. There was a certain amount of wine making the rounds, along with plenty of delicious food; several guests, plus our host, presented divrei Torah; one of the younger guests played several Jewish and non-Jewish tunes on the violin quite well; and there was also plenty of singing, included a Purim song in Ladino sung solo by a female guest and multipart harmony involving host, hostess, and guests both male and female. We had a wonderful time! Rav todot/many thanks to our hosts, and to Larry for arranging for our invitation and driving us from and back to the train station.

Our best to Malka Esther. We hope to be able to get together with both of you after tax season, when the Punster, CPA has time for a social life.
