Four-Letter Words

Hate. This four-letter word—often underestimated—is arguably much more dangerous than any curse word our children can learn. We are not born with hate in our hearts.

As expected, the program sold out in record time and even drew a waiting list of 200 families. Of course, Pesach On The Moon advertised


Parshat Tetzaveh

Hi! Last week’s cufflinks were the tightly-woven blue wool knots, which covered a whole bunch of the Mishkan’s donations. I’m impressed that so many of you nailed that with ease, and they weren’t even really cufflinks. Y’all got your thinking caps on!
