D'var torah rescue

Audrey Kaufman with her soggy d'var torahShabbat services were held, Saturday, July 5 on Steve's Sperling's boat and the overflow on Dror and Somi Feiner's boat.

The only overboard incident was Audrey Kaufman's copy of her d'var torah. While waiting for everyone to gather, she opened her prayerbook only to have the wind blow her d'var torah into the waters of Penetang Harbour. It was a skillful rescue by brotherhood chair, Ralph Mandell, as he managed to snag the soggy pages as they floated under the dock to his waiting boat hook. 

Once everyone settled themselves, we cruised to Beausoleil Island, anchored and had a beautiful service and a tasty kiddush lunch.
