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. Email your guesses, educated and otherwise, to [email protected] and we’ll publish the best and most creative answers a week later. Have fun!

I had a lot of fun this Shabbat! People approached me to play, instead of me approaching them! I was rolling up my sleeves all over the place! Teaneck is into it! Last week’s cuff links were the teeny levelers with an air bubble. It ties to the parsha as follows:

1) The events at the well.

2) Camels store up on...?

Two neighborhood rebbeim approached me to play too! Both were very clever and came up with these:

3) Rashi says that Rivkah was even-keeled, and had a calm and balanced personality.

4) Needed to build a bayit ne’eman b’Yisroel.

Well played!

Now let’s turn our attention to Parshat Toldot with another round of The Cuff Link Game! Link these to this week’s parsha. Shabbat shalom!
