Speaking of good news...

It is 6:00 AM, and I have a thousand topics that I'd like to write about, but only one that is in any way timely.  So without further ado, I want to add my voice to the chorus of Israeli bloggers who have already wished a hearty Mazal Tov to Noa (author of Jerusalem Revealed) upon her engagement to Bryan (the boyfriend formerly known as 'B'). 

A while back, Zahava and I spent a wonderful shabbat getting to know this beautiful, intelligent woman, and we could not be more pleased and proud that she has finally found her equal.

As luck would have it, I had the pleasure of extending my good wishes to Noa in person yesterday evening (I'll let you decide whether or not we did 'the dance').  We met in Jerusalem where we were both attending a preparation session for the speaking tour we will be making to the Metro New York area during the first week of March. 

Noa will be speaking at a few venues in Manhattan, and I will be speaking in Southern Connecticut and Riverdale.  The trip will culminate with us both speaking at Lincoln Square Synagogue (on Manhattan's upper West Side) on Sunday March 6th.   Feel free to contact either of us for more details if you live in the area.  I will probably post my speaking schedule later in the month.

Anyway, if you haven't yet done so... go on over to Jerusalem Revealed and show Noa the love.  May we all have nothing but happy occasions to celebrate together.

Hey, You're coming to NY?! We have to get together! Maybe Daniel and I can meet you at the Corner Cafe in Riverdale before/after your speaking gig. We miss you!

Did someone say Corner Cafe? I live right down the block! Bogie- I'd love to hear you speak when you make it to the 'Dale. Keep us posted- when and where.

Hmmm... I have some friends in Riverdale. What will you be speaking about?

Chavi... Happy to. I'll e-mail you my itinerary as soon as it is finalized. By the way, I am speaking in RIverdale on Shabbat (at two different synagogues).

Jake... I'd love to see you there. I'm speaking on Shabbat at Avi Weiss's shul and one other shul... don't know what the time slots are yet.

Doctor Bean... I am being sent to the US to speak about aliyah. The goal is to give those who are thinking about aliyah a nudge towards the right resources so they can make good decisions.
