Nothing like Corned Beef to start the day

I went to a bris this morning. Going to a bris is pretty rare for me; few people in my social circle are still having kids, and half of those kids are girls, so it has been a long time.

I learn at Kollel on Tuesday night's with one of the Kollel guys there, and it was his child who had the bris.

The bris was pretty standard. They made some brochos, did the bris, and the baby cried. Then they served fleishiks. They had a ton of deli, and kugels, and it was a good way to start off the morning.

Their were three speeches, which I thought was a bit much, but when you are serving deli for a bris, you're entitiled to have as many speeches as you like. My chavrusa spoke in a a Yeshivish Yiddlish, where most of the important words were in hebrew and yiddish, with English pronouns and the occasional verb thrown in to connect thoughts. Not very understandable to me, but the kollel crowd followed what he said.

But I was glad I went. I like the kollel, and I think they do a great job reaching out to the broader religious community.

May the baby (Pinchas ben Yitzchak Dov) merit torah, chuppah and maasim tovim.

Anon -

I don't know where he bought the food, but I think what you said about another mouth to feed is an incredibly inappropriate comment.

Yes, Air, that comment is obnoxious. Anon, your weak attempt at being sharp and witty is pathetic and in this case, disgusting. Do you have children, anon?

I believe we served dairy. BUT, we had a huge BBQ for my oldest's Pidyon HaBen, made extra special because it fell out during the nine days.

Corned beef sandwish is not out of step with the diet. The diet only says to have a single sandwich rather than multiple sandwiches, and to eat at a table.

Both of which I did.

But thanks for asking.

Speeches are part of every Simchah and sometimes I really wonder why? No one is interested in them!

I've never read your blog before, but I have 2 things to add

1) People really serve deli that early in the morning? What if you packed a milchig lunch for work later? How will you eat your chhese sandwish (or cookie)? What if you accidentally curse the baby's name on his very first day with it? ack!

2) You totally rocked on your Purim-spoof of my blog... I feel honored and touched (but not in that way). Thanks for the laughs!

p.s. do you really think I'm that shallow?

p.p.s. I am that shallow, aren't I?

p.p.p.s. so in your opinion, what do people this shallow wear? ;)

cheese sandwich.

lest anyone think that I am stupid, just because I am, as they say, something that rhymes with "shmallow."

SI -

Most people don't serve deli for a bris. That's what made this so unique and special. And most of the people there were kollel people, so I don't think they packed a lunch since they don't go to work. I guess they just go home for lunch.

I'm glad you liked the parody. I don't think writing about clothing makes you shallow, but you do write a lot about your wardrobe.
Oh, and I think shallow people should wear shorter skirts make the people around them smile. (So should the deep people)
