Is it strange to wish oneself a happy anniversary? I just did so I guess not! It was two years ago today that I was ordained as a rabbi. What a whirlwind it has been!
I intended to write this long, reflective, contemplative post about the past two years. Then the reality of tonight beginning Shavuot including confirmation students I have worked with all year hit and there is just no time for writing and reflecting right now. Hopefully that post might come at another time.
The picture to the left is when I was ordained by Rabbi David Ellenson after being presented by my sponsoring rabbi, Denise Eger.
All throughout the day I’ve been a part of Tweeting #Torah to the top. If you follow me on twitter @rabbisteinman, you are probably already aware. If you are on twitter, or you are just interested, search #torah and hopefully you will see lots of different types of posts in preparation for Shavuot tonight. (The idea for this initiative was to get #torah as the top tweeted item in anticipation of Shavuot. Thanks @rebmark!)
And since the theme of Shavuot and most of my days as a rabbi is Torah, here’s a picture of me carrying the Torah scroll (a survivor of WWII) from ordination back to Congregation Kol Ami where I borrowed it. Oh and also to hang out with my family and friends who traveled from near and far to celebrate with me!
Shavuot preparations beckon. Chag sameach!
