  1. Jacquie,
    I was very moved by today’s Ten Minutes of Torah post–not only by the content, but by the quality of the writing. I cannot find your email address anywhere (I’d hoped to find it on the Judea Reform website) so I’m writing here. I was just in Raleigh–checking out a place to retire–but have now returned to Pennsylvania. (John Friedman is a classmate.)
    Your blog post about the sukkah troubles me. Are you OK? (10.30.14)

  2. Jacquie,
    Don’t know whether you remember me or not. Met you in Phoenix when you and Howard Tabaknek did a concert. Anyway, I am now retired and living in an independent living facility in Phoenix. I do a weekly “taste of Shabbat” service for the JFCS Senior Center as well as a Friday evening service 1x/mo at another nearby community. Was so impressed with your 10 Min of Torah that I used it for both groups. At the full service this past Shabbat I read them your entire post and they hung on every word. When I finished reading I saw several people wiping their eyes and all of them were smiling. You have a whole bunch of new friends here!
    Wanted to say hello and thank you for a truly beautiful essay. All best wishes to you and your family. Would love to hear from you.
