We just returned from Shabbat dinner at the home of Hillel and Chana Fox. Hillel is the rabbi for Beth Jacob synagogue located about 10 minutes from our home (also the synagogue where Missy and I were married and my son’s had their Bar Mitzvahs). Since Hillel and I attended the same elementary school, we’ve known each other for quite some time.
It was a delightful evening and it was made even more interesting by the presence of two additional rabbis for dinner. We sat at the table for 4 hours discussing a range of topics. With son Leonard asking philosophical questions, it almost felt like we were discussing Halacha with Rabbi Akiva, Rabbi Maimon, and Rabbi Gamliel.
