In life, we can either let our experiences make us bitter, or we can channel that feeling towards being a good example in order to improve things.

Weekend happenings

-
On shabbos afternoon, I went to see some friends and hung out with them. Later on motzei shabbos, I went to a unique megilla reading. I was expecting for the guy to just read it like other people do. But what he did was put different voices to the person he was reading about. It was cute and enjoyable.

On Sunday, I had the seuda at home. Later, I walked with a friend to a concert part that was on one of the small side streets. It was huge, so many people! I feel like I hardly know any of them. Which makes me feel like I should try to get to know more people in my neighborhood, lol.
The concert was given by Shlomo Simcha, Avraham Fried, MBD, and Yeedle. I stayed for like an hour and forty five minutes and then walked home.

Well that's it. Have a good rest of the week

Thanks

No I still have it. In fact this whole blog is a miracle since I usually don't know what to say. But He helps and so I sometimes get an idea that I like, for instance, the story about the blogosphere.

the guy leined megillah in different voices? interesting. never heard of that being done before.

in my neighborhood, it's a contest over who finishes megillah first.
don't think that idea would go over too well here.

Where do you live that there was a street concert and a megillah reading like that?

I didnt know that such things happen in LA. I was there for a wedding 2 years ago and it seemed everything Jewish was on Pico and everything else was Sefardi or Chabad.

The guy at my place leins with a changing niggun, so that it sounds like a story.

Lvnsm27 said...

FWQ, yes the pico area has a big Jewish neighborhood. Mainly Modern Orthodox and some Persians/Israelies and chabad

The area I live in though, has a Yeshivish and Chassidish crowd and some modern orthodox and sefardim.
At the party there was a mix of all of these from both neighborhoods

Yingerman, that sounds very nice

Sounds like fun. My friend was living in Sherman Oaks before he moved.
