On the plane this morning I ended up being seated next to a guy who is in rabbinical school, and turns out to live on the same block as me in New York. We had an oddly wonderful conversation about Midrash, and about our various objections to Aish. It got me thinking about this awesome video. Three different people tried to explain it to me this week, but it’s something that you have to experience to understand, since it touches on all of the following: lentil stew, a time-space bending machine, a stroke, and wearing Crocs on Tisha B’Av.
