Rabbi Mark is off enjoying his well-earned sabbatical this summer, but will be using our BE blog to send us periodic dispatches from the road. Enjoy!
Beignets and a beautiful boat ride down the bayou (yep that’s me holding a baby gator) completed our New Orleans visit. We enjoyed a family reunion with my Mom, brother and a gaggle of cousins, while relaxing over the weekend at the historic Grand Hotel in Point Clear, AL. After country fried tempeh, biscuits and gravy and a stay with friends in Atlanta, we logged some more road miles to Richmond, VA. A cool swim in the historic James river and a quick visit to the Fine Arts museum closed out our day. Washington DC is next for a half day on Friday and then on to Baltimore by sunset for some Shabbat down time with my good friend and his family.
Wishing you a warm (and humid) Shabbat shalom from “the other coast,”
R. Mark and the mishpacha
