If you belong to the Gordon Jewish Community Center, it’s free. If not, it’s $15. In the meantime, I will be calling nm every day just whispering “Chevra Kadisha” into the phone until I either pronounce it correctly or she hits me with her umbrella, which, lucky for me, will be difficult since I will be calling her. When I see her in person, I will just shake my head in concern, “Oh, who could this weirdo calling you and mispronouncing ‘Chevra Kadisha’ into the phone be? Kids today. I swear. In my day, when you prank called someone, you didn’t use the opportunity as a language lesson. Oh, sure there were puns. ‘Is your refrigerator running? You’d better go catch it.’ But it was assumed the prank caller had a basic grasp of the linguistic trick she was attempting. When they catch your caller, they should pelt her with cookies or something.”
I think that, as long as I don’t call her while she’s in umbrella-striking distance of me, it should be fine.
Anyway, here are the details.
Believe me, now that I know people will have to pay to come, I will try to cram as many interesting things in there as possible. Okay, not really. But I will consider whether I could read while balancing a small bird on my head.
