Shabbat Shalom, Hey!
Thought I would change things up a bit and start off with a culture tip for those seeking some relief from any TV show hole you may be dealing with. These Zoom discussions and Q&A are sponsored by the Jews United for Democracy and Justice organization. I attended the most recent which was hosted by Bob Shrum and included Mike Murphy and Lynn Vavreck. What a great, fun and insightful hour!
