If you’re saying to yourself, “Honi the Circle-Maker!? They must have made him up” — well, they didn’t! Read about him here, here, and here. And if you’re saying to yourself, “G-dcast!? They must have made that up” — then obviously, you haven’t been reading Jewniverse lately. Subscribe for free right now, and discover a new amazing thing every day.
