Emor

Hi! Last week’s cufflinks were the Ravenclaw crest cufflinks from the Harry Potter mythos. Because the parsha warns multiple times against the use of sorcery, you could get in trouble with He Who Is Named.
David Roher, who should be familiar to readers from the pages of this paper, tried a different angle: “Never more!,” he said, “As in forbidden in this week’s parsha.” Very clever!
And now for another round of Roblinx, whaddya say? It’s a single parsha again this week, which is suddenly common these days (Yay, leap years!). You deserve a lay-up after …

Kedoshim

… found cuff links that were relevant to both parshiyot; this time it’s heavily weighted towards one because that makes sense. More hints, I’m not giving you.[*] Thanks for playing, and Shabbat Shalom!

Jewish Link Columnist Publishes ‘Star Wars’ Parody, ‘This Haggadah Is the Way’

… Haggadah received the most critical success and he told me: “‘The Shakespeare Haggadah’ got me the most impressive press (Times of Israel, Jewish Chronicle, Yahoo!) and got me on interesting podcasts.”
Martin Bodek
“The Haggadah is the Way” has the potential to rival its older peers in its appeal to the masses of avid fans of “Star Wars.” (As one measure of the “Star Wars” fandom’s reach, “Rogue One” achieved a worldwide total of $1.057 billion in ticket sales and was ranked third on Deadline Hollywood’s list of 2016’s “Most Valuable Blockbusters.”)
For a taste …

… s time again to play Name That Link! What exactly do these guys have to do with the week’s parsha? Here’s a hint: Do not overthink this. Rather, underthink this. Severely. Oopsie, telling you this might cause you to overthink. Ah well. Shabbat shalom, everybody!

Vayikra

Hi! Last week’s cuff links were the clouds, which appeared aaaaaaall the way at the end of the parsha, after the Mishkan was put together and ready for travel at a moment’s notice.
And now, it’s time again to play The Linking Ticket! YOLOok like you can connect these to the week’s parsha. Bet you a fistful of dollars that you can finger it out. Shabbat Shalom, y’all!

Last week’s pun-barrage cufflinks were the paper clips, because that’s what I picture the connecty-thingies looked like that held the curtains of the Mishkan together. Why, what do you picture?
While you’re, ahem, daydreaming about that, glory be, what could these links have to do with this week’s parsha? Sky’s the limit! Thank you for precipitating in this bit of fun every week. We close another chumash! Chazak chazak, everybody!

Now then, vovay iz mir, if it doesn’t click how these connect to this week’s parsha! Yes, you, mishkan. The name of this publication might even be a clue. Shabbat shalom, y’all!

… or less confounding. How about a game of pLinko? The tie-in to the parsha should become more revealing the deeper you get into the text. This should be easy to cover, but it’ll be a comedy and tragedy if you don’t. Shabbat shalom, everybody!
