It is Lag B'omer night. This year I am here, in my living room, not in Meiron.
My heart is full of joy, not only for my marriage, which should begin tomorrow, but for all of the light and goodness that fills the world in the merit of Rabi Shimon.
Our entire tradition of looking inward, and discovering how close we are and how beloved we are, this stems from His revealing the parts of the Torah that bring this home to your hearts.
As high as he could fly in a spiritual sense, he was never above taking each person He encountered and saying, I am here for you, no matter who you are, what you have done, or where you have been.
You are invited (virtually) to my website to see our chaseneh on video.
Much, much love to you all.
