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

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 “cufflinks” 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!

Thanks for playing Parsha Lech Lecha last week! Several contestants correctly guessed that the shoes are what one uses to “lech lecha.” But one clever entrant said, “Avraham said that he would not even take a shoe strap from the King of Sedom so that it would be clear that Hashem was the source of his wealth.” Now that’s good thinking. My favorites are the completely inventive ones I didn’t even anticipate. That one was from Michayel Cornick. Nice going!

Now let’s get back to the Cufflink game for Parshat Vayera, and play another round, shall we? Link these to this week’s parsha. Shabbat shalom!

Martin
