Best of the Week

What a week! The sun is up.  It’s warm outside. It’s supposed to be 90 degrees tomorrow in New York. And to think, this week, it snowed on my parent’s front lawn. Craziness.

As a kid, I loved reading and acting out the Sedra Scenes during kids services at synagogue. Then recently, I found the book and noticed that the authors made God really snarky. Same goes for Moses. Was ancient Israel known for it’s sarcasm? I’m getting off topic here but we have a great new article about modern Midrash and how we retell biblical stories.

If you like having your mind blown, I recommend grilling pineapple for Lag B’Omer. It doesn’t sound like anything special but believe me, it is the greatest thing ever. You can thank me next week.

Oh, I’m sorry! You don’t even know what Lag B’Omer is? Don’t worry! Quickly read up on this somewhat forgotten Jewish holiday. Hint: It involves grilled pineapple.
