Best of the Week

Let’s do this. Don’t have any weekend plans? Are you a slow reader? Then print off all of these links and you can stay preoccupied for a little while.

Wouldn’t you know it? We have a cool list of the dos and don’ts of welcoming a convert to the Jewish community. In a nutshell, avoid rudeness. Be friendly.

Purim is a week from tomorrow night. Read all about why Purim is now instead of in November, or any other time of the year for that matter.

That’s right, Purim is on a Saturday night. No need to wake up early on Sunday morning (except to read the megillah a second time). So feel free to get crazy by making this amazing candy infused vodka.

Sticking with the theme of screwing with people who have stomach issues, did you know that it is traditional to eat chickpeas on Purim? Find out why.

Okay, that’s all for now. Have a good weekend peeps!
