August 12, 2014 – 16 Menachem Av 5774

In a few short hours our trip to Israel with our two oldest grandchildren will begin. Like every day our plans revolve around saying kaddish and making sure I have a minyan. We cancelled our plans to fly up to New York early tomorrow morning because it was simply too difficult to get to a minyan. Similarly, we became concerned that upon our return I could run into a problem making a minyan for mincha/maariv. Instead, I will daven mincha today at the Washington DC Agudath Israel minyan and we will drive late this afternoon to New Jersey so I can make the 10:45 pm maariv minyan in Teaneck. Tomorrow I will find a 6:00 am shachris minyan so that we can be sure to get to JFK on time. I have already searched out shachris minyanim for our arrival in Israel on Thursday morning. Most likely I will go to the Shtiblach in Katamon where I can get a shachris minyan as late as 10:30 am.

Hopefully, stress notwithstanding it will all workout.
