Happiness is Living a Life with Purpose

We have been hosting hundreds of people for Shabbat and holiday meals each month for the last 20 years. Over Rosh Hashana and the preceding Shabbat, we decided to go to Tel Aviv as there is a huge demand for people to host the many singles and a shortage of people who are able to host them for Shabbat and holiday meals.  One night a guest asked if I knew all the people at the table.  He was astounded when I said I only knew one person.  This promoted the usual question "Why do you do…See More

I admit we travel a lot. We use all our spare money on budget travel. It's not always easy but it's always an adventure. For example we pulled into our hotel 20 minutes before Shabbat to find out they could not find our reservation, even though I had a confirmation, and the hotel was full...This past week we have been on a road trip…See More

I am trying to use MetroImma to the best advantage, I really am. I am hoping you can help me. I would like to see who from my contacts is already on metroimma so I can "friend" them, without having to send invites to people that are not on MetroImma already. Is that possible? I would love some advice. Thanks!

Thanks for the request, no I am not friendless! (That is a joke by the way, it is often hard to tell with no tone of voice or facial expressions.) Looking forward to the shiur on the 20th.
