follow-up to last post

Yesterday I posted a little bit about Rabbi Goldwicht of YU coming to the Chicago area for shabbos and how that was my kind of scholar-in-residence. He represents YU and what I call the Hesder brand of Yeshiva. In any event, I wish that the Chicago area would be fortunate enough to have people like him here more often.

One person who would fit that description is the current YU President, Richard Joel, who will be at KINS in West Rogers Park June 13-14, right after Shavuos.

With Passover (Pesach) coming up soon, it is good to take stock of the things that we've done and should be grateful for. I am glad that we have Modern Orthodox Synagogues like Chovevei Zion and KINS so that the Modern Orthodox people have a place to go to and have speakers and Rabbis that suit their needs.

Hey,

So what's your favorite D1 team from Washington?

Gonzaga, although I would prefer to root for the Huskies.

Basketball is Gonzaga, football was Washington, but if Wulff gets the Cougs to a bowl, I would consider them strongly.

2007-2008 has been a bad-two year stretch for the Purple & Gold.

You will enjoy the YU Kollel that will be starting in Chicago this fall. There will be many shiurim for the community and opportunities to study with a chavrusa.
