3 weddings and some rabbis

It’s finals season for college students, a time of year that still makes me shudder remembering flashcard piles and quickly approaching essay deadlines. I also get nostalgic thinking about free snacks, the search for the perfect study spot and the hush that fell over campus.

I’m no longer a student, but writing an article on deadline sure feels like taking a final sometimes. I was asked Wednesday to put together an overview on Jerusalem, which inspired the same sort of panic as if I had missed class all semester. The last two days were a blur of research, coffee, phone calls and writing. Luckily, I survived, and my reward is winter break … err, well, a weekend off at least!
