Anyone who is still feeling like they had a little too much Christmas....I think the Neil Diamond Christmas album was a little too much for me. Here is a nice anedote to that.
Shalom TV is presenting a hilarious film called the Hebrew Hammer this week. My best friend and I were on the floor. Not recommended for anyone under the age of 15, in my opinion.
It is a film about a New York guy, played by Adam Goldberg, who has to battle to save Chanukah. If you have a sense of humor watch it, I wouldn't recommend it to the extremely sensitive. However, if you can do well with Seinfeld you will be just fine.
On the conversion front: Our Rabbi is on vacation. The retired Rabbi lead our early service this Saturday. He is more "traditional" for a Reform Rabbi and he pulled out the old siddur (prayer book) on us. It was a bit of a slap in the face for me. I thought I was doing so good at services, that was with the transliteration.
So other than watching my favorite football team not make the play-offs, I am studying my Hebrew as I refuse to let this language prevent me from making it to the mikvah...this is not an impossible obstacle, but a learning experience. The say Jews are the most optimistic people of the world, right?
