Hello Coffee Room Lurkers,
I posted this in the decaf room, but posting again here in the hopes that I will reach more of you who were involved in the initial discussions way back.
I used to frequent this place, to be precise, 7 years ago, and recently found myself wandering back here. I looked at some of my old posts and wow, a lot of water has flowed under the bridge since then. I don’t have time anymore to philosophize about frum girls learning gemara or women’s tafkid. I did appreciate the discussions and opinions shared back then though. Sadly, I never did have the time to pursue gemara learning seriously. I come to all of you here with a question, but first some updates:
I’m on the verge of completing my MD and have 2 small children; this leaves very little time for anything else. But some recent COVID-related changes in our curriculum have left me with a few spare hours a week and the bandwidth to reflect on my journey from exemplary Borough Park Bais Yaakov graduate, to Limudei Kodesh high school teacher, to wife, mother, and (almost) medical doctor. I have stories, anecdotes, and thoughts rattling in my brain like pennies in a pushka and was thinking of putting it to writing in a blog. The activation energy to getting started is high, but I would be inclined to do it if it would inspire, motivate, encourage (or even just entertain) people to reach beyond the typically prescribed path. My goal is not to rock anyone’s boat or pull the rug out from under anyone; I just want to share my story. So, my question to all of you is, would you be interested? Would you read my blog?
The Decaf forum is basically the only forum which gets used now. There’s no simple way to access the other forums.November 16, 2020 9:26 am at 9:26 am #1920162EvalimoshavloParticipant
