Last night we had the launch of Rabbi Natan Slifkin’s new book The Challenge of Creation. Turnout was great. Excitement was high. And the book just looks fantastic.

A few blogs have already covered the event:

Wolfish Musings
Jew School (what, you don’t come over and say hello?)

Below are some pictures. Remember, Rabbi Slifkin will be speaking tonight at the Young Israel of Teaneck at 8:45pm. Be there, or else. As promised, I will be posting the text of my speech. Just not right now.
