I’m Not Used To This

Our intern Jordanna just expressed to me a feeling that I’ve had since this morning. She said that she is feeling rushed, trying to send as many e-mails and phone calls that she can before the day ends. Then she realized something. Thanksgiving isn’t a Jewish holiday.

I couldn’t agree with this feeling more. All day, I’ve been thinking about what I’m going to where to shul tonight and tomorrow and if I have enough undershirts. But then it occurs to me that tomorrow is just a Thursday! I can do whatever I want tomorrow!

I gotta say, we should have non-Jewish holidays more often. Good meals. Football. Family around. Electricity! No Musaf!

What could be better? Happy Thanksgiving everybody!
