I have much be thankful for this year! I have reached the stage of life that Tevye dreamed about in his song “If I were a rich man”:
If I were rich, I’d have the time I lack, to sit in the synagogue and pray, And maybe have a seat by the Eastern wall. And I’d discuss the holy books with the learned men, seven hours every day, And that would be the sweetest thing of all!– lyrics from If I Were a Rich Man, Fiddler on the Roof
