‪א׳ ניסן תשס״ז * 20 March 2007: Ro’sh Ḥodhesh Nisan/Jewish New Year/Great American Meat Out Day/National Quilting Day

Greetings.

Today’s news and commentary, some of which Barry is responsible for:Today’s weird thing is Andrew Lipson's LEGO® Page. You definitely want to see the Escher renderings. Enjoy, share the weirdness, and happy new year.

And, yes, I know it is not Ro’sh hashShanah (1 Tishri). Somehow we Jews ended up with four new years, and this is the one used in the Hebrew Bible. I am not clear why the new year used for dates got moved six months.
