It seems like a lifetime ago (actually about 10 years) when I told some friends that I was interested in learning more about the Jewish faith. I told them I would be interested in attending some services and classes but didn't know where to begin. They both ridiculed me and told me that my curiosity would not be welcomed. I believed them.
Fast Forward to the summer of 2006.
I'm talking with my friend, Brad, who tells me about how he's going to start taking Torah classes on Thursday nights. My eyes lit up -- here was my chance -- I asked Brad if there was any way I might be able to come, too.
So it was that last fall I started going to the local Temple on Thursday nights to soak up as much as I could from Rabbi David.
I would come home each Thursday night and tell my wife about what I had learned -- the "new" concepts I was exploring (only things that have been discussed and debated for about 5,000 years now).
The classes went through the early part of this year.
Now, I get to go again!
I think it's safe to say you will be reading a lot about these classes in the months to come.
