Tomorrow's Opportunity

I have Thursday off from work and am going to take the opportunity to meet with a rabbi who is in town visiting from Israel. He is very knowledgeable about the history and minhagim of the area in Ukraine where my family is from.

Since I am mainly exposed to Lubavitcher Chassidim, I eagerly anticipate meeting and talking with this rabbi who is from another Chassidic dynasty. It is also of particular interest since his Rebbe is a descendent of the Rebbe of my family's shtetl.

G-d willing, this meeting will help illuminate the path of my ancestors.
