I didn’t get home until about 9:00 this evening. I am the advisor of the National Honor Society at my school, and tonight was our induction ceremony. It was a nice ceremony. I really enjoyed the speech given my my principal and the D’Var Torah presented by one of our Judaics faculty, Rabbi Pamela Gottfried. She did a really interesting interpretation of the story of Adam and Eve, linking it to scholarship and questioning, and I thought it was very good. I also liked that she mentioned being in the NHS herself in school. Evidently, the students told her that they appreciated that I recited the pledge along with them. Our pledge makes mention of performing mitzvot and upholding Jewish ideals. I am glad that they were touched. I think the kids enjoyed the ceremony.
