This week’s Carnival of the Jews is up, and I had time to read some selections.
A Tale of Two Engineers (in one of the attacked hotels in Mumbai).
Another from Treppenwitz: His memories of the Holtzbergs.
Choose a rabbi you can follow. I did that last year, which is why I am no longer teaching at or a member of my synagogue, whose leadership didn’t agree with me that the temporary rabbi was a terrible fit for our group. (Of course, he bailed on us and went elsewhere, contrary to his promises to stay and help rebuild our fractured congregation. Imagine that. I was right about him, and our clueless leadership was wrong.)
They’re terrorists. Call them what they are.
The Jewish Writing Project. Kewl.
The blessings in having your enemies close. (Such a good-looking boy, too.)
What is the most challenging aspect of blogging? (Can I add “Watching two-bit hacks get a much larger readership than yours because they depend on polemicism, cliches, crappy writing, and extreme opinions instead of good, fact-based posts”?)
You simply have to scroll down to the Dreidel Song video. Jews Texas Two-Stepping is laugh out loud hilarious. Yippe-yi-yo-chai-yay, indeed.
And that’s that. Time to do some of my own writing.
