Visitors to our blog over the last couple weeks have encountered something you’re not accustomed to – no content.
The last couple weeks have been extremely busy with very little time to blog. On top of getting ready to transition back across the country and into a new position, two weeks ago I was in Dallas for the UMJC annual conference and business meetings. Then last week I returned early Sunday morning to finish packing up our home and meeting friends to help us load our truck (pictured above). Since Monique had to leave for Africa for a month for work, my father-in-law and I schlepped across America in the moving truck, arriving in LA on Friday afternoon and just in time to unload the truck and usher in Shabbat (with the help of more friends).
Saturday morning was quite an emotional and exciting time as I was installed into my new position as the Senior Rabbi of Ahavat Zion Synagogue in Beverly Hills, CA. Then Saturday night we had a wonderful banquet celebrating Rabbi Dr. Stuart and Naomi Dauermann and their twenty years as the previous spiritual leaders of Ahavat Zion. Rabbi Dauermann will pursue exciting new adventures as he devotes his energy full-time to traveling, teaching, and writing.
This morning internet and cable were finally installed in our new apartment, and I am now able to begin getting back into some sense of normalcy. Therefore, I can also return to regular blog posts.
Also, with our relocation back to the West Coast I am hoping to soon add a new look to our blog as well. So great things are afoot. Stay tuned!
