Notice: This Shabbath begins the Nine Days, a period of mourning for the destruction of the Temple. To get in the proper mood, during this time there will be no fun weird things. All postings during this time will be downright political, or perhaps something sad, historical, or philosophizing.
Political thinking: “Fighting Terrorism: Recommendations of Arab Reformists”.
Today’s weird thing is a little something I received from both Ruth and Emily, and is included below. (Note: Spelling corrections have been made.) Enjoy, and Shabbath shalom.
