  1. Wow, you’re really doing this, Michael, and I’m so happy for you and proud of you. You’ll be a fabulous rabbi, of that I’m sure. Let me know when you get back from California; we have a pending coffee meeting. πŸ™‚

    1. Thanks, Emily πŸ™‚ How are the twins?!! I loved seeing the photos of the personalities they’re developing. (Talk to the Hand was priceless!)

      I’m meeting with the president of the school (it’s a *small* school) in two weeks, after Ryan and I get back from Walt Disney World, to discuss the specifics. They actually told me in advance of my acceptance letter. I got an email from the academic dean to call to schedule an appointment with the president. When I called, his assistant told me it was “to discuss my program” and asked me if “my ears were burning” because they were just getting ready to put my letter in the mail. I actually had to ask, “Does this mean I’m accepted?” With the big, fat response of Oh Yes, you’re accepted. So there you go.
