Last Thursday, Daniel Stone spoke to us about his book, The Food Explorer. The evening was a real adventure, because we had a power outage that started a half hour before the presentation and lasted until after midnight. We were unfazed. We brought out candles (electric and wax) and flashlights, and of course we all had our phones. The powerpoint presentation did not happen of course, and we had to work without microphones, but the audience (of over 100!) was not going to let a little thing like a lack of light prevent us from hearing Daniel's excellent presentation, and the show went on!
Later on, it occurred to us that originally our Sisterhood seder was scheduled for that night. However, because many Sisterhood members were going to be on the Sisterhood MahJongg cruise, the seder was moved a week earlier, to March 15. If it hadn't been for the cruise, the seder would have been on the night of the power outage.
While we were able to proceed with a evening that only involved a single speaker and snacks, it is hard to imagine that we could have done the seder, with about 130 people, multiple readers, and dinner, in the dark. We would have undoubtedly had to cancel.
But, thanks to the cruise, the seder wasn't on the night of the power outage, and thanks to an accommodating audience Thursday, nothing got canceled. Both events were wonderful, as was the women of the wall event last Saturday.
So what do you think? Was it coincidence or divine intervention?
Went looking for jokes about darkness and found this one - it was too cute to pass it up.
