The World Wide Wrap
was today. I was speaking
at Forest Hills Jewish Center.
I wasn't very good, for a number of reasons, inexplicable stage fright amongst them.* Also, this was the first time I'd done a tefillin talk, and I pitched it wrong - I sort of didn't realise that there were people there who had no idea at all what tefillin even are. This was really, really stupid of me, because that's sort of the whole point of the World Wide Wrap. DUH. If you were there and you're reading this - sorry. I hope you got something out of it anyway. Still, I made notes of a few things I could have done, so next time I speak about tefillin, I'll do better.
W was at a New Jersey shul doing exactly the same. His went better.
* I don't usually get stage fright when I'm talking about sofrut. Weird.
