When I find out my son's school is canceled and the synagogue building will be closed, I dig my driveway out and hunker down for the day. My youth director, on the other hand, messages all the families and kids in the congregation to see if they want to have a snow party on the synagogue's front lawn, complete with hot chocolate. Now that's programming! Thanks Brett Schwartz! I'm sure we'll see pictures imminently.
On a much sadder note, condolences to my neighbors Jim and Nancy McFadden, whose adult daughter Denise died today in a horrible snowplow accident. Hamakom Yinachem etchem: may they find comfort and solace in the days ahead.
