There are many circumstances that one could say would never happen. One of those is having a shul in your house. It turns out that there are many benefits of having services in your house. First, I have the shortest walk to shul that one could ever imagine. I walk through my garage and into the “shul room,” as my kids call it. Before this, we were lucky to get to shul during the Haftarah. Usually, it was during musaf. I would have never been able to state what prayers are recited before the Torah service. Now, I’m usually the 2nd or 3rd person there! Second, I love that my kids are literally surrounded by Torah. They hear me practicing my readings, they listen to the prayer melodies , and lead Adon Olam, sometimes. Of course, I hope that one day we will grow large enough to need to move somewhere more conventional, but until then, I will enjoy the convenience of having my kehillah come to me.
