Unusual Reminders on My Phone ... : )

Every once in a while, my phone will send me a reminder that makes me laugh ... today, it beeped and said, "Leave for church."  For me, even as a rabbi who does a lot of outreach work, it still makes me laugh.   : )

This past week has been a lot of work within and without the Jewish community ... Wednesday night was the ADL Gala (700 folks there and my guess is only half were Jewish, which is phenomenal).  Thursday night, I spoke at a local Islamic cultural center.  Friday night, I co-led worshiips at the ADL-Ballet Austin-sponsored event called, "Light:  The Holocaust and Humanity Project."  (I think Saturday was pretty much exclusively Jewish with Tot Shabbat, morning Shabbat worship, and the B'nai Mitzvah Shabbaton helping our students get ready to become B'nai Mitzvah).  Today, I taught two different "Adult Sunday School" classes, worked with the kids' choir and am now off to the Church of the Resurrection before attending a Board Meeting.

Yes, this is what rabbis do.   : )
