Drew hears Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz speak at school

Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz answering DrewToday, Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz came to YCT and spoke about selihos (video). Having never heard him before, I wasn't sure what to expect (yes, he is a prolific author, some of which I've read, but I didn't know about him as a speaker). However, I thought he was great, especially really liking his humbleness and gentleness. Anyways, that is my two cents on that.
Oh, and, by the way, it's my birthday today.

Weekly Blog Posting #7

Today's Jblogger Midtown Meet-Up

Having seen Shira's blog posting (and prior posting and following posting) of a Jblogger get-together, I decided it would be a nice opportunity to get together with some other Jbloggers.
Although I left late to get to the meet-up, I then went to the wrong place, but eventually got there. I was disappointed that there weren't more people, as it was just - aside from me - Steg, Shira and her husband (the latter two of whom I met for the first time). I would've thought that there would've been more to make it, but I guess it might've just been to dorkified for them (look, I acknowledge and embrace my dorkhood).
Anyways, there were a couple of firsts for me: first Jblogger meet-up and first time at Kosher Deluxe. Aside from that, we mostly discussed some Jblogosphere stuff along with some Jewish topics.
