On Tuesday night of Chol Hamoed, the Turners had a St. Louis simcha bais hashoeva (sukkah party). We came with Avital (Rivki had other plans), plus the Gitts, the Bar Leibs and the Newmark’s (who have been in Israel for several years) came. We had such a good time! We got there around 3, and Avital and I didn’t get home until 11. Even though not everyone knew each other and had lived in St. Louis at different times, everyone knew people in common (like the Grunbergers and Yaris, etc.). It was a phenomenal evening!
