Shabbat Shalom

Last night I attended my first Friday night Shabbat service. What a great way to end a week. It was so different from any service I had ever attended. The Rabbi is trained as a classical guitarist so he accompanied much of the service on his guitar. No one seemed to mind that I was completely lost when they started singing in Hebrew (some of the Hebrew is provided in a transliteration for people who don't read Hebrew but some of it you just have to know.) The Wife and I are signed up for an 18-week Introduction to Judaism course at this synagogue but it won't proceed without 10 people. Last night the Rabbi said the course had 8 people enrolled. I really hope they get another 2 people because I really want to take this class.
