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.

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