Where Did The Week Go?

Into the records. That’s where. I’m not even sure what that means. Here’s a wrap-up of the week:

Anyone like playing trivial pursuit? Who doesn’t, right? When I was growing up, I would always look forward to the Sports & Leisure questions. I thought, “Gee, the only things I really know about are baseball box scores and random Simpsons trivia, so I’m sure I’ll do fine.” But then, every so often, you would get one of those “Leisure” questions and it would totally throw you off. But no more. Thanks to Meredith, you will now be able to answer all the trivia there is about Mah-Jongg.

With a few seeds comes a field. But shockingly, Aharon Appelfeld is not a descendant of Johnny Appleseed. I think that’s the dumbest thing I’ve written down. Unlike Appelfeld, who happens to be a good writer.

Communism is dead. So is Leon Trotsky. Coincidence? (And don’t send me any of messages saying communism isn’t dead. I get it.)

I think that’s it! Spend this weekend well because next week, MyJewishLearning will blow your mind with all our new content.
