Chicago updates

Six months into my stay at the Chicago Moishe House, I finally feel like we are hitting our groove. I am also coming to realize and appreciate the level of time and commitment Moishe House requires. I often wish I had more time to put into planning programs. But our events seem to be going well. We have a healthy core group of participants.

Coming from the Chicago area, I went home for the first night of Passover. While we were not able to host a seder because so many of us were going home, I was delighted that out network of people allowed us to find places for people to go for seder. In particular, two of our 'regulars' joined my family and me and other members of the Moishe Chicago community. They reached out to us to inquire about Seders and my parents were happy to host them. I think this is a true testament to the value and success of the Moishe House community.

Spring finally seems to be here in Chicago. I look forward to doing some more outdoor events including bike rides, BBQs and picnics. I'm also hoping to institute volunteering at a community garden as one of our regular monthly activities.

Happy Spring!
