At Rap with the Rabbai, Rabbai Hershman's topic was "The Seven Laws of Moses". This is a bit of a misnomer, as the concepts were developed hundreds of years later in Rabbinical times. The laws (or principles) were (1) development of a legal system and prohibitions against (2) idolatry (3) bloodshed, (4) blasphemy, (5) theft, (6) sexual sin, an d (7) eating from a living animal. I have been deeply impressed by Rabbai Hershman scholarship and openness to ideas reflecting all faith traditions.
There were 3 presentations in the Crystal Visions Enrichment program. Bob Reif spoke at 10 on "Ten Things to Know about the NFL"
Woulda, Coulda, Shoulda had it's best day yet with 9 of 18 points, with a range of 4 to 11 among all teams, followed by the American Bufet. The Super Bowl was broadcast live at 12:30pm in the Stardust Club. Palm Court was a busy place with team trivia, afternoon tea, and the Crystal Society party, with one guest completing just over 6 years on Crystal.
We had a wonderful French Dinner in the Crystal Dining Room, followed by another performance in Stardust Club by classical Pianist Philip Wojciechowski with music of Chopin, Schubert, Rachmaninov, and Satie.
I am really not a football fan, but as my parting shot today, our view of the Super Bowl brought back some memories. For many years now the Super Bowl has been an evening game but that has not always been the case. For a number of years I looked forward with great anticipation to the super bowl as a skier. It was the one day in prime ski season when there were no lines for the lifts, although there were many portable TV's in the lodge and little room to sit. It was my favorite day of the ski season. I got back a little bit of that feeling today.
