Back to the guests - you guys are great, we love you all. Hope the mum was as good as the company and the singing; and if you were surprised by the crowding [13-13-11-11 in the end, as J&R sadly had to cancel - Refuah Shleimah!], you clearly haven't been over to SerandEz (...and Elianna!) before, so you need to come back like everyone else. For those who have asked, I hope to post some of the recipes over the next week so y'all can have them in time for Sukkos.
The ba'alei t'fila at Lander were amazing as usual. And I'm not just saying that because they're really good friends... who sang at my wedding... whom I've known for a long time. They were really, really great - those are just bonuses. I hear the haftorah was great on the second day, too. Rumor has it that it's a segulah to... umm, have the recipient give the donors a really funny look like "I can't believe you did this." Or something like that. Right?
Please continue to have in mind Aliza Rochel bas Liba Yenta in your tefillos for a refuah shleimah.
Shana tova and a g'mar chasima tova to all!
mum - food in Elianna's language
refuah shleimah - [may you have a] full healthy recovery
ba'alei t'fila - cantors
tefillos - prayers
haftorah - portion read after the Torah portion
segulah - charm (?)
shana tova - good year
g'mar chasima tova - may you be sealed for [a] good [year]
