Yeshivat Hadar Week 3 Day 1

In case you're a visual person and would rather see my schedule than just hear (er, see) me write about it:

I had time to do this because we start late tomorrow! (Actually 8:15, not 8:30, but close enough). And yeah, they feed us 10 times a week; no extra charge. I hear that's because back when they didn't, there were complaints that no one had time to cook themselves affordable food...

Anyway, after the long weekend, including a stop in Philly to do some packing, it was hard to get back into the swing of things. And I'm sad that the Monday off meant missing one of the halacha (Jewish Law) sections of the week. But by the end of the day, things were rocking again. The prayer leading master class seriously has me smiling for 90 minutes straight every week. I love it so much. And I'm convinced by now that I actually know quite a lot about service leading, even by yeshiva standards. I still have a lot of room for improvement, but more than anything, I need to practice! So now I'm excited to find opportunities to lead weekday services (which I've never really done before; they're very different from Shabbat services).

Sleep well, New York!
