Shabbat Shalom shlemiels and shlimazels! (today’s yiddish lesson)
Well gang, we are OPEN FOR BUSINESS!!!!!
While it’s clearly debatable whether it’s the right move or not, some of our neighbors are clearly confused about how we are managing the whole pandemic thing.
Now, onto the Jewish headlines for the week:
– Will Jewish denominations survive the pandemic? A rake of Rabbi’s weigh in (tip: some good stuff, but skimmable)
– Will the newly formed Israeli government choke off hopes for middle east peace? Is Joe Biden right? Could his position cause a schism in Jewish support?
– On Culture: Mandy Patinkin’s son takes over his twitter account
– Dear Abbys: When the vacuum becomes your new best friend and other life challenges answered
– Tefillin or Not Tefillin – One man’s journey to combine the spiritual and the religious
All for now! Enjoy the long weekend everyone!
And hey, let’s be careful out there.
