    Congrats! This goes to show you that everytime we talk it’s all about me since I’m finding out about it now! LOL

    Can’t wait to hear the whole story 🙂

      Thank you for this, what a fabulous idea for the kids. On Rosh Hashana we cetaerble ahead of time, by thanking Hashem for sealing us in the book of life. So with all Mitzvah’s we can create on a Vision Board what we want to see and cetaerble the events before hand to help us make the event less stressful and more joyous. There is a quote from the Talmud We see the world as we are.

    I’m excited that you found my blog ( and then let me know about your blog!

    It sounds like you have a rigorous and well-structured program ahead of you. Believe it or not, I’m a Reform temple member and wasn’t aware of the URJ Ten Minutes of Torah site.

    I look forward to following your, um, journey. 🙂

    Hi Juliet,
    I live here in Murrieta and was intrigued by your comments about your Bat Mitzvah on FB.
    I would love to meet you sometime being that I just don’t know very many Jewish women in this area.
    I work with 2 very funny comedy hypnotists from LA. We work with non-profits, charitable
    organizations, schools; and yes, even temples doing our show “HYPNO-larious”. We went
    over to AZ, where my sister and family live, and did two shows. One at Temple Chai and the other for ASU Chabad. They loved the fact that we have such funny but not offensive material to bring to their communities. Oh, and both of the hypnotists are
    Jewish. We don’t promote ourselves as such because we do shows for everyone.
    I hope that your journey is a wonderful one. I know it was for my sister.
    We have a show at Keyways on Sept 10th at 8:00 for a non-profit “Save the Animals Today”.
    But, the real reason that I contacted you, was to say hello and connect.
    Nice to meet you!
    Sherri Moyer

    Hi Juliet, I found your blog when I googled Robert Keller. I hope I am not the first to tell you he passed away this week. It made me think of this crazy days in the wild wild west we called Riverslime. He was one of a kind. I know I missed the reunion you and Scott put together a while a go. I regret it but I’m sure I had some crazy excuse about my busy life. I have two kids now as well. Ellie is 3 and Andrew is 5 and I am married to a another Orange County Public Defender. Just wanted to say…Your blog is sweet and insightful. I enjoyed it. Nice to see pics of you, Scott, and your lovely family. Be well. Laura
