Mostly I was in way over my head—often, subbing in a high school, I would be stopped in the hall by other teachers, mistaken for a student and scolded for being out of class without a pass. Once I had a totally out of control kindergarten class and, at my wit’s end, took them out to the playground for the last half hour of the day. Some of the boys decided that even more fun than trying to kill each other would be to queue up at one wall of the school building, unzip their pants and see who could pee the furthest.

Did the women lead parts of the service? Little or not at all as I recall—it would have been difﬁcult to gather together a more impressive, more intimidating group of men, and we women were either lacking Jewish education, were temperamentally reserved, or both. I’m sure I wasn’t the only one who felt awed simply to be in the room.
