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

Hi! So many of you were spot on with the crossed-swords cufflinks that if I were to list them all, they’d break out of this small corner of the page. Give yourself a pat on the back if you knew they were linked to: 1) Yaakov preparing for war (literally saber-rattling); 2) Yaakov struggling with the angel; 3) the mass brit milah of the people of shechem; 4) Shimon’s and Levi’s vengeance.

On to this week. Tell me, please, how these relate to the week’s parsha, and feel free to draw from its relevance in pop culture. 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 into the parsha of the week. Email your guesses, educated and otherwise, to [email protected] and we’ll publish the best and most creative answers a week later. Have fun!
