Street scene

Our synagogue's semi-annual street fair took place today, and, since it was a gorgeous day, many congregants turned out not only to help but to hang out and take in the scene. It was a delight to see so many of our members, not all of whom are always well enough and/or interested enough to attend services. The conveyances of the congregants, though, were more of a reminder of the age and fragility of our members than I would have liked: I counted two wheelchairs, one crutch, at least three walkers, and more canes than I could keep track of. Some folks came with home attendants. There was also considerable shouting into nearly-deaf ears. But at least everyone enjoyed letting the sunshine in.
