My short trip to New Jersey this past Sunday and Monday had its share of saying kaddish logistics.
To maximize my time in New Jersey I left Silver Spring at 5:15 am and stopped in Baltimore to make the 6:20 am shachris minyan in the Agudah.
I left the Agudah and drove straight to New Jersey arriving a little after 10:00 am. I worked at my mother’s house until the 4:30 pm mincha/maariv minyan at B’nai Yeshurun in Teaneck then went to Englewood to spend the night at my son Nachum’s house.
Monday morning I went to the earliest shachris minyan I could find – the 6:15 Shachris minyan in Ahavas Torah as I had an early morning meeting with a mover who was coming to give me a quote on moving some of my mother’s furniture to St. Louis. I had originally planned on making a 4″40 pm mincha/maariv minyan in either Silver Spring or Baltimore, however, a client emergency required that I be on a conference call at 4:30 pm. That required that I stay in Teaneck a few extra hours so that I could daven mincha midafternoon and catch a maariv in Silver Spring upon my return. Thus, I davened mincha at a 1:45 pm minyan at B’nai Yeshurun, then hit the road and made the 8:45 maariv minyan at the Yeshiva in Silver Spring.
Just another day in the life of one saying kaddish logistics. I get a few days off until Sunday when I return to Columbus.
