Some Effort

I just heard from WineGuy that his parents arrived in Florida last night. They will be coming over to The Zone on Friday for Wizard’s Bar Mitzvah on Saturday. Thank G-d. Nevertheless, my FIL announced he did not want and would not accept Torah honors. Fine. Be an ass. Just show up when you’re supposed to.

One less thing to worry about.

  1. I’m glad they decided to come. Of course I don’t know what Torah honors are or what not accepting them means, but it sounds like you are dealing with it. I hope you can find some peace amid the stress of the weekend and be able to enjoy the celebratory milestone, even if the occasion is not what you envisioned.

    • During Sabbath morning services, Jews read portions from the Old Testament known as the Torah. Before each portion is read, a congregant comes up to the bimah (altar), stands next to the open Torah scroll, and recites blessings (in Hebrew) about the greatness of G-d who gave us the Torah. The recitation of those blessings — along with opening and closing the Ark — are “Torah honors”.
