Shavuoth 5773

This blog has been quiescent for a while, but be assured that I have not.  It is end of semester mode at school (and therefore the Final Exams I have had to compose and will soon have to administer and grade), there are family issues, there is a little bit of travel coming up, et cetera.

Amidst all of that, I have been engaged in  some activities behind the scenery and in the wings on certain issues that have garnered national attention and concern.

The Festival of Shavuoth comes in at sunset.  It is a major Jewish holiday (which, unfortunately, has been minimized in importance by some of the less observant and more assimilated sectors of the Jewish community) commemorating the giving of the Torah on Mt. Sinai.

I will soon sign off of my computer and prepare to celebrate the holiday.

Wishing all a Chag Sameach Shavuoth!
