We had a lovely time on Friday night at the Levin-Herman household as we celebrated Shabbat, ate well, and shared a little learning of Torah. Especially beautiful was the aufruf of Becca Levin and Kim Spasari, as we gathered warmly around them to offer our best wishes for their married life together.  After all of that, we had time to visit, play guitar and sing – something we’ll  do now once every few months.
