If hachnasat orchim, welcoming guests, is a cornerstone mitzvah of Jewish life, surely it must extend from Abraham’s tent all the way to the big tent (a popular phrase on this site this week!) that is the blogosphere.
Blogs are the biggest tents we have in many ways – miles of open country where conversations transcend geographical boundaries and open themselves to people who might otherwise never have met face-to-face.
And it is in that spirit that I want to thank the good peeps at MyJewishLearning.com for opening their blog, their tent, to my words and ideas. It has been a pleasure virtually visiting and being part of this sacred space.
Pronounced: MITZ-vuh or meetz-VAH, Origin: Hebrew, commandment, also used to mean good deed.
