Best of the Week

Let’s see what we have here. Another week has passed, so let’s take a look at the great things we’ve provided for you this week (not expecting a thank you note or anything).

We’ve had a recipe for polenta on our site for a while now. We just added a recipe for Mamaliga, the Romanian equivalent. Don’t tell anyone that they are seriously similar.

Feeling alone? Read this article about Judaism’s views on masturbation.

Are you an American history buff? Well, read George Washington’s famous letter to the Touro Synagogue in Newport.

Finally, we all know that there are Christians in Israel–they even have their own quarter in Jerusalem. Here is everything you need to know about this small community.

Have fun reading! See you next week.
