Chag sameach! We won’t be leining a specific parsha this week, but the show must go on, amirite? I’ve got the layup of layups for you, and you deserve it for playing so hard and engaging with me through the parsha calendar. Besides, you’ll be so exhausted from staying up all night, that you’ve earned the mental break. Enjoy the chag, the learning and your families and friends, and we’ll be back at the parsha next week!
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!
