Eighth Internship Visit

My eighth internship visit consisted of, on Friday afternoon, of visiting the Hartford Jewish Federation and speaking with the staff member in charge of allocations. I hadn’t previously known about how Federations allocated their money, so it was interestingly enlightening (and not so mysterious anymore). I also learned about other elements about federations.
After that, we visited a lady in a hospital who had given birth just that morning. The maternity ward in that hospital was very nice. It was definitely a place in which I wouldn’t mind having a baby. It was fairly newish and definitely nice, especially the woodwork.
That evening, I gave the Friday night devar Torah between kabbalat Shabbat and ma’ariv, my seventh such time. I spoke about how what appeared in the parshah fit into the larger narrative flow.
The next day, I presented on Aleinu during my sixth "Worship Workshop" class (source sheet).
