Dear Loyal Readers,
Over the past few weeks I’ve hinted at some more changes going on in my life and for the usual reasons of busyness I haven’t gotten around to posting. The big news: I accepted the position of Rabbi at The Stanton St. Shul1 in New York’s Lower East Side and even had my first Shabbat last week.
As you might expect, it’s a big change for me being my first rabbinic position – especially on top of all the craziness in my life over the past few months.2 Still, I’m very excited to be taking on this new challenge and hopefully work on myself in the process.
In terms of blogging, I’m going to have to be even more careful with what I say up here. Obviously some things will have to be “off limits,” but I on the other hand since I’ll be doing more teaching I should be able to post more Torah as derashot or some shiurim.
I’m still looking for apartments on the LES, but thankfully I’m getting help from the community and the great people at LoHo Realty, so for the time being I’ve been commuting into the city.
So that’s the scoop. If anyone out there is interested in the community or wants to come by for a visit, please let me know!
1. The website could use some work, but I hope to add my expertise in that area as well.
2. Plus since it’s technically a part-time position I’m currently taking classes in Revel, possibly en route to a PhD in Talmud but that part is still tentative.
