September 19, 2014 Gratefulness challenge, day 28
Tonight I am invited to someone’s apartment in my building for Shabbos dinner. Given that I don’t live in a part of Kansas City with much Jewish activity*, it has been hard getting Jewishly plugged in. But I have the afternoon downtown minyan and now I have this too, so that’s something.
*All there is within a one-hour walk is 1) a Chabad house that is only going to start having minyans with the High Holy Days and (2) a Reform congregation that doesn’t meet on Saturdays. All the more traditional congregations have moved to the Kansas suburbs.
