Rainy Week in Georgia


New_UmbrellaDid you know that rain is considered a sign of mazel (luck) in Judaism? I learned this from my Dad, who learned it from his Eastern European immigrant parents.

So, it’s been kind of rainy in Georgia all week, and—true to folk religion—the rain brought me good fortune in the form of several new projects.  I’ll share my top three news items, since three is also lucky:

1. Building Bridges with Women of Faith: I had the opportunity to meet with some of the founding members of the Neshama Interfaith Center. It was like reuniting with old friends. I’m looking forward to teaching Torah and facilitating art workshops for them in fall 2013. Stay tuned for more information.

2. Connecting Catholic & Jewish Mothers in Cyberspace: I was honored and delighted to participate in Ginny Kubitz Moyer’s Blog Tour for her new book, Random Moments of Grace.  Here is the link to the review I posted on Tuesday.  Ginny is a gifted writer and a lovely person. Be sure to follow Ginny’s blog, Random Acts of Momness.

3. Directing Fall Retreat for Jewish Women at Ramah Darom: Who is ready for three days of relaxation and renewal in the gorgeous north Georgia mountains?! I’m delighted to be working with my “camp friends” to plan the 2013 Jewish Women’s Getaway! Early bird registration has already begun, and I expect to have the program book and tentative schedule on the website by the end of May.  Hope to see you there, October 20th – 22nd.

Wow Pamela, you have received good fortune this week.

Yes, Helen! Except the rain prevented me from walking with you…

What a fascinating bit of lore. I’ve always liked the rain. Maybe that’s why! 🙂

Speaking of luck, I feel like I’m the lucky one to be the subject of such a beautiful post about my book. Thank you again.

Your new projects sound so exciting!

Ginny, I enjoyed participating in my first Blog Tour. It was fun, and I hope that it helped you reach an even wider audience. Thanks for the encouragement & support. It’s still raining here and I’m still feeling optimistic!
