Another unusual shabbat
What a week. Politics, Health and death. One of our close friends lost his brother on Wednesday evening. The funeral was just before Shabbat in Bet Shemesh. Nice way to begin Shabbat. The only silver lining is that my oldest son came to the funeral and will be staying with us for Shabbat.
Adding to the excitement, my wife is running a Bar Mitzva this weekend for a friend. She has been busy all day and will be serving at the Bar Mitzva dinner tonight. So, no sleepover guests for us this weekend, and a very small dinner (6 people).
We invited a local family with young children over for lunch, but one of their brood was sick yesterday. The jury is still out on whether they will eat with us for Shabbat lunch. An added complication is that one of their family has Celiacs and so all the food that I made is gluten free.
