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

Hi! Last week’s cufflinks were the hands in the precise formation of the “yolo” or “shaka” symbol. Interestingly enough, it is the same as the “kemitzah” with which the Kohen Gadol formed his hand when performing the flour offering. “Kemitzah” is the Hebrew word for the ring finger.

Thus, concludes the ancient and modern language lessons for the day.

And now, it’s time for Cufflinkeardy! Hosted by, um, me! Tie these into this week’s parsha, which, conveniently, seems like they have a lot to do with a certain chag of the current season. Wild coincidence? Shabbat shalom!


For years now, Martin Bodek has been wearing cufflinks 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 into 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!
