Have your CAYKGH and eat it too

Thanks to JRants, I can easily stay informed of the latest developments in the Jewish community... of Kew Gardens Hills. More precisely, Congregation Ahavas Yisroel of Kew Gardens Hills. (That's in Queens, New York, in case you were wondering.)

As far as I know I don't have any friends or relatives in CAYKGH (how do they pronounce that?), but if I did, JRants would get me the updates in no time.

In appreciation of this vital community service, I'd like to extend wishes of Mazel Tov to the Goldschmiedts and Wimpfheimers, as well as to the Schwerds and Walfishs. I don't know them and they don't know me (or even who I am), but we're all Jews, right?

I confess I often lack Kavanna in the First Brocha (or any of them, for that matter), and I fear I'll have to miss R' Yechezkel Rosenberg's Shiur in the Sunday Morning Chavrsua Program.

So, CAYKGH (like "cake" with a "gh"?), welcome to the fray! Keep on blogging, and let's see more of that daring commentary and insightful analysis. We'll get you muddy yet, just wait and see.

Meanwhile, I'll be careful as I walk in the neighborhood - especially at night.

Well, if you move a little on your Berachos learning you can catch up to us in the Seventh Perek for the Sunday morning shiur. Because you're a good guy, I'm giving you a heads up on an upcoming post discussing some juicy machlokesim on zimun.

And if that didn't shake you up, you'll never guess what we're learning in the Shabbos shiur. That's right, the Second Perek of Pesachim and the question of Biur Chametz. How do you like that - small world?

Be well and stop by if you're ever in America.

Sounds like we're on the same wavelength. Uncanny!

When I'm in the States, though, I don't usually have much reason to pass through Queens. I sometimes get to Flatbush, Westchester, Englewood, Bergenfield, not usually KGH.
