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

Last week’s cufflinks seemed to have been stumpers. They were the Gryffindor crests. I was going for three levels of meaning:

1) A griffin has wings of eagles, which is what Hashem said he brought us on to get us out of Egypt.

2) The crest is one of the four symbols for the houses at Hogwarts, and houses are mentioned multiple times in the parsha.

3) The Bnei Yisroel were “sorted” into hierarchies when at Har Sinai. Sorted, get it?

Now, Wordle is once a day. But the Parsha Cufflink is once a week, so don’t miss out. This is my first re-use since starting this, but it’s too perfect to pass up. Tie them in to this week’s portion. Shabbat shalom!


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!
