Best of the Week

Oh, the week. You passed us by so quickly. At one moment I had a case of the Mondays, and before I knew it, I was getting ready to hibernate in my apartment for 60 hours. You work in wonderous ways. What did you bring us this week?

When I was a kid, Saturday night meant one thing and one thing only. Walker Texas Ranger. And if you disagree with me, you’re just lying to yourself. Who knew that there is a custom called Melaveh Malkah which allows you to keep your Shabbat party going?

Question: What is the fastest tune for Adon Olam? Answer: Yankee Doodle Dandee. You can get through that thing in like 20 seconds. Take more time than that though when you read our new article on the prayer.

Finally, Earth Day was this week, so give our Todd & God “Going Green” episode a watch. I think it’s funny.
