I expected something more academic and was caught off guard at the blending of the personal and the historical.
How long have you known me :-)? I always blend the personal and the historical.
And thanks for sharing your talit story. I do remember telling you you'd have to wear one and also that Tina couldn't join you for the aliyah and said I'd understand if you didn't want to accept. But I didn't know the rest.
I love wearing a talit, too. My summer talit was a gift from Cecelia (because she heard me bitching so often about how hot my talit was in NYC summer and an un-air conditioned shul) so I always think of her when I wear it. I loved buying talitot for/with each of the kids as they approached bnai mitzvah. I would love to read your talit reflections.
