A Moment in Time: Right on Cue

[additional-authors]
June 2, 2022

Dear all,

It’s been a busy few weeks for our family. With Ron’s State Controller Campaign in full swing, and with my balancing multiple life transitions at Temple Akiba (not to mention the raising of our wonderful children), we rarely get a chance for date night.

But earlier this week, in the middle of everything, we went out for a walk and happened upon a pool table. Ron said, “Let’s play.” But I hesitated, noting that we really didn’t have all that much time. Ron insisted.

As I held the cue in my hand, it dawned on me. There are a million things we both need to accomplish. But right on cue, destiny presented us with a reason to spend extra time with one another.

Yes – I did think of the Music Man and the Trouble in River City! And yes, I confirmed that I am a lousy pool player. But creating a moment in time to be with my beloved…. That surpasses all else.

What opportunity will present itself to you this week?

With love and Shalom,

Rabbi Zach Shapiro
