Ed's Special Blog

I'm a Senior at Wilbur Cross in New Haven, CT. I can't wait to get out either. Most of the stuff I say is pointless but it's fun to write anyway so let me know what you think.

Yom Kippur was crazy here. It was one of the best ones I've ever had. I got put in charge of finding people for pesicha so right before Mussaf I was going over what we say with Rabbi Friedman, and he's like we skip the stuff in little type in the artscroll. So I get to the avoda and I'm like we skip that and he's like no we say it all together, and then I'm like what about eilah ezkarah and he goes no we say that too. So I look at him and go I miss my parents shul. He started cracking up.
On Shabbos Shuva I wound up davening Kabalos Shabbos at Vishnitz cause I was at a freinds cousing with him. You couldn't here the chazan at all but he jumped up and down like a frog which was funny. So me and Dovid fell asleep and then I woke up and was like holy crap. I woke Weisman up too cause there were 300 Chasidim dancing around us adn we were the only two sitting down. It was wicked funny.

So I haven't posted in a few week because they still won't unblock blogger and lj at school. It's tzom gedali so we only ahd 1st seder this morning. Then we davened mincha and a bunch o us came to the internet shteibel to kill time and use aim and stuff. Hmm so Rosh Hashana was really crazy. The first day Rabbi G went running through the dorms banging on doors screaming yom hadin at the top of his lungs. Me and my roomate heard him and went running downstairs to help. On the 2nd day some other crazy stuff happened. Rabbi Friedman who is a kohen was davening mussaf so he had to wash for duchanim before chazaras hashatz. I went out to wash his hands and reminded him to untie his shoes. He shooshed me cause ur not supposed to talk till the shofar is finished. Then he went to the bathroom and I washed his hands and he didn't untie his shoes. I had to do it for him. I told him next time I tell you to unite your shoes you do it. Then during duchanin Seif clilmbed under my taalis and started rubbing my arm during the yehi ratzons it was weird. Another funny story Erev Rosh Hashana we did hataros nedorim. So the 4 of us was me seif chezky and Rabbi G and it took us 10 minutes. When we were done Rabbi G was like thank G-d I had guys who could read hebrews!I also sprained my finger bad enough playing basketball to go to the hospital for x-rays and have it splinted for a few days!
