2011 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2011 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Syndey Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 43,000 times in 2011. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 16 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

Seder starts at 9:15 (9:30 on Mondays & Thursdays) with preparation for shiur. Shiur (in Kesubos) is given from 10:15 – 11:15. You can come for part of the time, or stay even longer. Hope to see you there.
