Friday Wrap-Up

Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-up (11/9/2018)

It was an enjoyable and successful six days in New York City, but I’m glad to be back in Florida for a few days before I head to Pittsburgh and Scottsdale next week. Today, I’m off to Gainesville for my annual trip to a Gators football game. Unfortunately, the team is on a mighty slide at the moment, but there is no way that it will interfere with the joy that I always have in returning to the city where I spent seven years of my life (not because I’m Van Wilder, but because I did undergrad and law school studies back-to-back).
