Kudos to a bar mitzvah kid
Great (but exhausting) Shabbat today. Walked to synagogue out of necessity (my car's in the shop) and was reminded of how much I love (and miss) walking to shul on Shabbes. The Bar Mitzvah did a great job, but more than that, he brought his own musical ability (he plays rock guitar in a band) and included the song "With My Own Two Hands" in his D'var Torah. Very applicable to this past week's parasha and a wonderful tikkun--by making sacred a secular song (though it really lends itself well).
