The Rennovations, and Improvisations, Continue

The rennovations going on at my temple are in full swing. So much so, that we've been displaced from the sanctuary altogether.

Well, if there's one thing Jews know about, it's displacement.

Today's morning Minyan took place in a school room, and as you can see from the photo, was a kind of jury-rigged together. Regardless, it got the job done. And it'll make it all the more sweater when we do services in the shiny, new, completed sanctuary.

Seriously, if you want to design a religion for the long haul, make it one that can function in pretty much any space with a minimal amount of equipment.

I'll include my usual plug here:

if you're in the DC area, Etz Hayim (get directions) has a small minyan that meets every Thursday at 7:00am (and 9:30am on federal holidays). We're just minutes from the Pentagon and Crystal City, so it shouldn't be much of a schlep. We don't always hit 10 people, so if you're in the area, you'd make a real impact by joining us. All are welcome!

Shabbat Shalom, y'all!
