Best Of The Week

Here we go. What didn’t we do this week? Well, for one, we didn’t write about Maimonides-related Halloween costumes. Oh wait, we did.

If I were to have a time machine, and believe me, it’s on my list of things to get, I’d DEFINITELY go to Eastern Europe between the years 1700-1914. Why you ask? I just miss traditional Jewish life there. After reading this, I’m sure you’ll agree.

I read A.J. Jacobs’ Year of Living Biblically a couple months ago and I thought it was unbelievable. Then Matthue decided to ask him for an interview literally hours before I was going to e-mail him asking for my own interview. You snooze you lose, Jeremy. You snooze you lose.

Kosherfest sounds like a dream. A wonderful, gluttonous dream. This year, Tamar was lucky enough to go and live blog for us. Once again, Jeremy, you snooze you lose.
