We've had a joyously busy weekend, thank G-d.
Of course I wasn't invited to all, just some, and some were open to the entire community.
On Monday, shushan Purim, neighbors celebrated their son's Bar Mitzvah. Then Wednesday evening there was a wedding. On Thursday night, there were two weddings affecting three Shiloh families. That's because a local girl married a local boy. That's not all there was. Two families had Bar Mitzvah parties.
And then on Shabbat, there was also Shalom Zachor Friday night, the Erev Shabbat get-together the first Shabbat after a boy is born. The Shiloh wedding had a reception, too.
In the morning after shul there were two kiddushim in two different synagogues; one was for the other wedding, and the other for one of the Bar Mitzvah boys. Then in the afternoon the second Bar Mitzvah boy's family invited everyone for a reception.
