Linking Northern and Central NJ, Bronx, Manhattan, Westchester and CT

Hi! Last week’s cufflinks were Batman symbols, and many of you got real creative. I was going for 1) Batman is The Dark Knight. Get it, dark night? 1b) The Israelites escaped Egypt during the dark night. 2) Bruce Wayne is a first-born son. 3) When the Isrealites were in trouble, they sent up their version of a bat signal.

To this, random folks on Shabbat offered that Moses was a dispenser of vigilante justice (clever!), the Egyptians hung around and were immovable during choshech (like!), HaShem bat-tered the Egyptians around with his makot (nice!).

May the creative streak continue! Let’s see feather you can tie these cufflinks in to this beak’s parsha. What a hoot. Hope this doesn’t fly over your head. Ojay, I’ll stop, I’m talon you.
Shabbat shalom y’all!


For years now, Martin Bodek has been wearing cuff links themed to the week’s parsha, to stimulate conversation around the Shabbat table. Naturally, it begged for a wider audience, and The Jewish Link seems like a perfect home—especially in name. Every week, we’ll present the cuff links, and you tell us how it ties in to the parsha of the week. E-mail your guesses, educated and otherwise, to [email protected] and we’ll publish the best and most creative answers a week later. Have fun!
