un clip du Hamas qui visait à terroriser l’Etat hébreu a été parodié à plusieurs reprises par les Israéliens, jusqu’à devenir un véritable tube de l’été
Ces Israéliens l’ont bien compris: l’humour est certainement l’arme la plus redoutable
contre la terreur. Un clip du Hamas devient tube de l’été en Israël
Au début de l’opération Bordure protectrice qui a débuté mi-juillet, la branche armée du
Hamas avait mis en ligne un clip illustrant des paroles explicites et chantées en hébreu.
Intitulée Nous allons faire trembler la sécurité d’Israël, la chanson visait à terroriser

How to Make Popular Rosh Hashanah Recipes

18.02.2011
Watch more How to Celebrate Jewish Holidays videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/154870-…

Rosh Hashanah is known as the Jewish New Year, a holiday marked by reflection, charity, and repentance. Food is an integral part of the holiday and is used to symbolize the hope for a sweet, fruitful new year.

Step 1: Bake challah bread
Bake challah bread. Dissolve 1 package dry yeast and 2 tablespoons of sugar in 1/2 cup warm water until the yeast begins to foam. Combine 5 1/2 cups flour, 1 cup water, 1/4 cup oil, 2 eggs, and teaspoon salt in a food processor, gradually adding the flour.

Step 2: Cover dough
Put the dough in a greased bowl, cover and let it rise for one hour. Knead the dough and shape it into circular roll, then let it rise again. Glaze with one additional egg and then bake on a cookie sheet at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for 30-40 minutes.

Tip
In its round form, the challah represents the cycle of life and the passing year. It is passed around the table so everyone can break off a piece.

Step 3: Slice up apples
Use a knife to slice up a selection of apples. Serve with individual dishes of honey for dipping.

Tip
After an apple slice is dipped in honey, the blessing for eating tree fruits is recited. After the apple is tasted, the apples and honey prayer is recited.

Step 4: Offer fish
Offer a fish dish, which symbolizes the hope that the coming year will bring plenty. Place any whitefish fillets — such as snapper, trout, haddock or sole — in a baking dish.

Step 5: Season the fillets
Sprinkle the fillets with salt and pepper, apple cider or red wine vinegar, olive oil, and a dash of honey. Garnish with raisins if desired. Bake at 400 degrees for about 20 minutes or until the fish is no longer translucent.

Step 6: Serve new fruits
Serve new fruits, such as pomegranates. A new fruit means one that has just come into season, recently picked. Tradition holds that a pomegranate contains 613 seeds, just as there are 613 of God’s commandments.

Step 7: Make carrot tzimmes
Make tzimmes, a savory, sweet carrot side dish. Peel and slice 12 carrots. Melt 3 tablesoons butter in a saucepan, then add 3 tablespoons honey, 3 tablespoons brown sugar, and 3 tablespoons lemon juice. Add the sliced carrots and bring the mixture to a boil. Simmer for 1 hour on low heat. L’Shanah Tovah!

Did You Know?
Rosh Hashanah occurs on the first and second days of Tishri, the seventh month of the Jewish calendar. The holiday was established in the Book of Leviticus.

COMMENT: Holy Lunch

Holy Lunch
Menachem Av 21, 5774 · August 17, 2014

 

Have you ever closed a deal, celebrated your marriage (or its anniversary), or simply spent time with a good friend—without eating something together? When you think of home, is it not in your taste buds that the most elemental memories reside? And what about the food itself—can you get any closer to something than by ingesting it into yourself and turning it into your own flesh, bone and blood?

Tell me what, how, where and with whom you eat, and I’ll tell you who and what you are.


Numerous explanations have been offered for the Torah’s kosher dietary laws. Some point out the health benefits. Others dwell on the unifying effect these laws have on a dispersed people, and their role as a shield against assimilation. Nachmanides, the great 13th-century sage and Kabbalist, explains that “the birds and many of the mammals forbidden by the Torah are predators, while the permitted animals are not; we are commanded not to eat those animals possessive of a cruel nature, so that we should not absorb these qualities into ourselves.”

But perhaps the most basic reason (insofar as a divine command can possess a “reason”) is that presented by the Torah itself in the closing verses of its chapter on the dietary laws:

To differentiate between the impure and the pure, between the animal that may be eaten and the animal that may not be eaten. (Leviticus 11:47)

“To differentiate,” lehavdil in the original Hebrew—this single word defines man’s uniqueness as a moral creature. Or, in the Torah’s terminology, a “holy” person.

As our sages point out in their commentary on this verse, the concept of lehavdilapplies only to two ostensibly similar things. Cows, too, differentiate, between a nutritious grass and a poisonous weed. But the kosher-observant shopper will differentiate between a piece of meat from an animal that was slaughtered by a certified shochet in accordance with the detailed laws of shechitah, and a piece of meat from an animal that was simply killed in an abattoir. No laboratory will discover any physical difference between the two. But the Jew accepts the first and rejects the second. And if he unwittingly brings the second into his kitchen, he will blowtorch the pan that cooked it and discard the china on which it was served.

Morality is the capacity to accept that there are things to be embraced and things to be rebuffed. Sometimes the desirability or undesirability of a thing is obvious; sometimes we can smell the difference, and sometimes we can understand it. But if that’s where it stops, we’re nothing more than cows avoiding the poison.

The point at which we begin to lead moral and holy lives is the point at which we say: “There is ‘Yes’ and there is ‘No’ in G‑d’s world. These are objective truths, established by the Creator of reality. Often I will find that the ‘Yes’ things give me pleasure, safeguard my health, preserve society, and fulfill me spiritually, while the ‘No’ things achieve the opposite. But this is not what makes them ‘Yes’ or ‘No.’ On the contrary: because a thing is morally positive, it will invariably occupy a positive place in my life; because a thing is morally negative, it will inevitably hurt me. But my need to affirm the ‘Yes’ and reject the ‘No’ stands above these considerations, which are the result, not the source, of the intrinsic difference.”

Of course, every time the Torah tells us to do something or not to do something, it is making this point. But nowhere is the imperative lehavdil as fundamental as when it dictates what we should eat and what we should not. Nowhere is it as intimately woven into our lives as when applied to the act of eating, by which the eater and the eaten literally become one flesh.

If you accept a yes/no line of demarcation across the diameter of your dinner plate, then—and only then—have you mastered the art of holiness.

Thousands of Israelis Rally in Support of Gaza Offensive

15.08.2014
Thousands of Israelis gather in Tel Aviv’s Rabin Square to rally in support of residents of southern Israel, a region frequently targeted by militants firing rockets from Gaza.

Full Story:

Thousands of Israelis gather in Tel Aviv’s Rabin Square Thursday to support residents of southern Israel.

The region is a frequent target of rockets launched by militants in Gaza.

Many wave signs and banners in support of Israel’s month long offensive.

But with a new five-day ceasefire in effect, some are calling for the Israeli government to do more to stop rocket attacks.

[Dror Shamir, Resident of Givatayim, Israel]:
“We came, actually, to say that we have people who are around 12 years (old), 14 years (old) or under, everyday these rockets. And they have 15 seconds, 15 unbelievable seconds to find a shelter. And these children here, they are afraid.”

[Oren Alony, Resident of Hedera, Israel]:
“We have had enough. We are coming together today to tell to our Prime Minister, ‘If you have to fight, fight. Don’t talk. You have nothing to talk about. There are terrorists organizations. We have nothing to talk with them.”

More than a month of intense conflict between Israel and Hamas Islamist militants has left nearly 2,000 Palestinians dead, many of them civilians.

64 Israeli soldiers and three Israeli citizens have also been killed.

The temporary truce comes after both sides agreed to give Egyptian-brokered peace negotiations in Cairo more time to try to end the conflict in Gaza.

‘Threads’ at Jerusalem’s Tower of David Museum

31.07.2013
http://www.israel.org

‘To have new contemporary fashion within these walls — just the juxtaposition of the new and the old is amazing.’

What happens when you ask 10 leading Israeli fashion designers to imagine an original outfit for 10 significant women in Israeli history?

You get “Threads,” a new exhibition this summer at the Tower of David Museum in Jerusalem.

“Our research team researched each historical personality, then sat with the designers and explained their historical personality, why she was famous, why she was essential to our understanding of history, and the designers then just let inspiration rule their fantasies, and they created very original designs, each one very indicative of that designer’s work,” says Rose Ginosar, director of resource development for the museum in the ancient city walls.

“We’re essentially a fortress. A fortress that’s been standing here for over 1,000 years, and to have new contemporary fashion within these walls — just the juxtaposition of the new and the old is amazing.”

SFJFF Presents: Online Short of the Month .SFJFF Presents: A Tale of a Woman and a Robe

08.09.2014 SFJewishFilmFestival
Director Nurit Jacobs -Yinon’s video-art ‘A Tale of a Woman and a Robe’ deals with the act of immersion in a ritual bath (mikveh) by women converts. This immersion, signifying the final stage of the conversion process, obligates the women to immerse in the presence of three rabbinic judges while wearing only a robe. The video-art examines the immersion experience from the women converts’ viewpoint, an experience which may simultaneously evoke feelings of both elation and humiliation. The work exposes the woman’s role, as both present at, and absent from, the ceremony, and gives expression to an artistic, personal and public statement.

Oma and Bella is an intimate portrait of two elderly Jewish women in Berlin with humor, powerful stories, and a deep fondness for good food. As the documentary follows them through their daily lives, a portrait emerges of two Holocaust survivors who stayed in Germany. They answer questions of heritage, memory and identity, ultimately, through the re-creation of the sumptuous foods from their childhood. This film, made by Oma’s granddaughter, follows them as they struggle to retain a part of their past while being very much engaged in the present.

I AM A JEW — Introduction

29.01.2013
The American Jewish pre-teen considers their Bar or Bat Mitzvah to be various things. For some it is the end of religious schooling. For others it is the task of learning a Torah portion. For many, it’s plans for a big party. And while formal Jewish education may indeed conclude at the age of 13, a young person’s understanding and appreciation of their roles as Modern Jews has only just begun to develop. As these perceptive ‘tweens’ approach the often-confusing stages of adolescence, their Judaism can continue to be an integral source of dignity and strength in their lives. The time for answering their questions about Judaism will soon be over. The opportunity to build an intellectual foundation of progressive Jewish pride is now.

The goal of the film ‘I Am A Jew’ is not to teach students ‘how to be a Jew’, but rather how to think about and practice Judaism in a proud new way. Only then will they understand and appreciate what it means to say, “I Am A Jew.”

Schnittke’s early music shows the strong influence of Dmitri Shostakovich. He developed a polystylistic technique in works such as the epic First Symphony (1969–1972) and First Concerto Grosso (1977). In the 1980s, Schnittke’s music began to become more widely known abroad with the publication of his Second (1980) and Third (1983) String Quartets and the String Trio (1985); the ballet Peer Gynt (1985–1987); the Third (1981), Fourth (1984), and Fifth (1988) Symphonies; and the Viola (1985) and 1st Cello (1985–1986) Concertos. As his health deteriorated, Schnittke’s music started to abandon much of the extroversion of his polystylism and retreated into a more withdrawn, bleak style.Schnittke’s father, Harry Viktorovich Schnittke (1914–1975, rus.), was Jewish and born in Frankfurt.[1] He moved to the USSR in 1927 and worked as a journalist and translatorfrom the Russian language into German. His mother, Maria Iosifovna Schnittke (née Vogel, 1910–1972), was a Volga German born in Russia.

Rabbi Haviva Ner-David on “women’s mitzvot” and transcending gender binaries


Rabbi Haviva Ner-David on “women’s mitzvot” and transcending gender binariesPosted: 26 Aug 2014 06:39 AM PDT

Front-coverLast night I went to hear Rabbi Haviva Ner-David speak in Pittsfield at an event co-presented by Congregation Beth Israel (my shul),Knesset Israel, Hevreh, and and Rimon Center for Jewish Spirituality. Here’s how we described the event on the flyers:

Rabba Haviva Ner-David is an author, pioneer in Jewish women’s post-denominational thinking, wife, and mother of seven living on Kibbutz Hanaton. She is also a dynamic speaker coming to share the experiences and thinking which led to her latest book: Chana’s Voice: A Rabbi Wrestles with Gender, Commandment, and the Women’s Rituals of Baking, Bathing and Brightening (new from Ben Yehuda Press).

All genders are invited to join us for a talk followed by light refreshments and an opportunity to chat with the author and get books autographed.

I’d actually heard Rabbi Ner-David speak a few years ago at the Mayyim Hayyim mikveh conference Gathering the Waters — I blogged about her remarks in the post The emerging mikveh movement in Israel. I’ve been a fan of her work for a long time, ever since I first read Life on the Fringes: A Feminist Journey Toward Traditional Rabbinic Ordination.

She began her remarks by explaining how the process of writing her first memoir led to the spiritual and intellectual inquiry of this second book. “Life on the Fringes was about my childhood growing up Modern Orthodox in New York,” she explained, “and my struggles as a feminist with Orthodoxy and tradition, and my decision to study to become a rabbi — but wanting to get Orthodox rabbinic ordination.”

That first book is memoir mixed with halakhic interpretation (Jewish-legal analysis), and one of its main themes is is women’s role in tradition. Hair covering, women studying Torah, taking on the obligations which only men are technically obligated to perform — the “positive time-bound mitzvot.” (I’ve written about those before: Time-bound, 2010.) It occurred to me, as I heard her speak, that the combination of memoir and halakhic interpretation makes me think of midrash aggadah and midrash halakha, the interweaving of narrative and legal interpretation which makes up so much of classical Jewish tradition.

She wrote in Life on the Fringes about tallit and tefillin — things which (in her Modern Orthodox childhood) men did, and women didn’t do. Chanah’s Voice explores how she came to recognize that in focusing so strongly on claiming tallit and tefillin for herself, she had neglected the mitzvot which women are traditionally obligated to perform. “I didn’t know when I started writing the book what I was going to find,” she noted. “But I decided to spend that year struggling with these three mitzvot.”

The three mitzvot which are traditionally considered womens’ mitzvot are challah (taking challah — when one bakes a certain amount of bread, one is supposed to take out a portion of the dough and set it aside for the priests, and since today we don’t have priests, one sets it aside and burns it), niddah (after menstruation one counts a certain number of days and then immerses in a mikveh before engaging in sexual relations again) and hadlakat ha-ner (lighting shabbat candles.) Together they’re known by the acronym ChaNaH, which is a nifty confluence because Chanah is the Biblical figure who is considered to have invented prayer.

“As a feminist, I had a lot of baggage around all three of these [mitzvot],” she admitted, and all the women in the room chuckled.

Where her first book interwove memoir with halakha, this book interweaves memoir with other kinds of Jewish texts — midrash, Hasidut, and kabbalah. She notes that when she wrote Life on the Fringes, she was caught-up in halakha, a subject which as a woman she wasn’t encouraged to study at all. Studying Jewish law was a way of doing what the men did, and she did that for many years. But this book arises out of a different impulse, and not surprisingly draws on different kinds of Jewish texts.

How did the project of Chanah’s Voice begin? “My Rosh Chodesh group had disbanded,” she recalled, “and around that time, there was a small group of us left who wanted to continue to meet, so we decided to meet twice a month. We were trying to think of a topic on which to focus, so I said, I just decided I want to spend time understanding these three mitzvot; maybe we can do that as a group?”

The book begins with a beautiful short preface about the kabbalistic notion of the breaking of the vessels, a text suggesting that the breakage was intentional because it allows us as humanity to have a role in creating repair. “Revelation of Torah is continual; it’s not something given once in one time and one place,” she noted. Feminism too is a continual revelation, and is one of the ways we can work together toward creating a redeemed world.

After that preface, Chanah’s Voice is divided into three sections, one focusing on each mitzvah. Each section opens with a quote from classical Jewish text which shows what she was struggling with as that section was written — for instance, “There are three sins for which women die in childbirth: a lack of care with regard to niddah, the separation of challah, and the lighting of the Shabbat lamp.” (This is a famous mishna, and oy, is it problematic to the contemporary feminist mindset.)

The challah section of Chanah’s Voice, she said, is very much about the idea of the tradition valuing men’s work over women’s work, and about her journey into shifting that perspective. Challah, baking bread, is definitely considered women’s work. (Whereas in that traditional paradigm, laying tefillin is men’s work.)

For me one of the most interesting parts of the evening was when she was talking about how taking challah came to feel emblematic of a way of elevating the experience of living in Israel. She read part of the challah section of the book, beginning with a passage about how when she and her husband first made aliyah (emigrated to Israel), she imagined that she was moving to an Israel which would soon be at peace with its Arab neighbors. That peace, in turn, would give Israel spaciousness to work on other important issues like religious pluralism and civil rights. Halevai — would that it had been so. (Would that it were so even now!) But we all know that that dream has not yet come to pass. What does it mean, what can it mean, to elevate the choice of living in that place at this moment in time?

By way of response, she cited a teaching from Rabbi Yehuda Leib Alter of Ger (also known as the Sfat Emet — I’ve posted his teachings here many times before) about why the commandment to take challah comes, in the Torah, right after the story of the spies. The spies returned with the slanderous description of the promised land as a place which devours its inhabitants, and right after that we read the commandment to take challah. How are these related? Challah represents physical sustenance drawn from the earth. When we give a gift of dough to God, we elevate our need for sustenance into a holy act. We respond to the physical world with elevation. But the spies didn’t do that:

The sin of the spies represented a failure to cope with the actuality of the physical world. Because they refused to live in the reality of the lower world, they couldn’t elevate it with their piety — instead they disparaged it. They brought the people down with them. The response to the sin of the spies, therefore, is to practice taking challah — to elevate the world through spiritual acts.

No matter how hopeless it may seem to seek to build the just and righteous society of her dreams in the land of Israel, she resolved to remember the Sfat’s Emet point that we can always seek to uplift the reality we’re given. She recommitted herself, she said, to “renewed elevation in the face of despair.” She decided to prepare enough dough to fulfill the mitzvah of taking challah — a symbolic reminder of the weekly mission of elevating the physical world and perfecting it. (The mitzvah of taking challah only applies when you bake a certain quantity of bread.) The choice to bake extra bread becomes a holy act, and baking more bread than you need creates an opportunity to give it away, to practice the mitzvah of giving.

Some people might think that as a feminist, and at the time a rabbinical student, I would end up with a more apologetic solution — that I would look into these womens’ mitzvot and say, oh, look at these beautiful mitzvot women were given, why am I running to do tallit and tefillin? But the solution that I came to is that, no, there’s beauty in both the “mens’ mitzvot,” the things we’ve constructed as a society to call the male side of Judaism, and the more “feminine side.” The feminine side has been devalued; we have to find the value in it and lift it up, and offer it to the men and say, look what you’ve been missing as well.

“I’m in favor of de-gendering mitzvot in general,” she noted. In her opinion, there shouldn’t be “men’s” mitzvot and “women’s” mitzvot — there should be mitzvot, period. “In general I think it’s a mistake to obligate certain people based on their gender. People have all kinds of talents and callings, and it seems to me arbitrary to divide it along gender lines.”

She told the story of baking challah together with her women’s group, and chanting intensely while baking and kneading, and then experiencing an earthquake in Jerusalem while they were doing that. (This is very rare!) And she related that to the story of Korach, in which the earth opens up and swallows the rebels — who dared to say “we’re all equal.” (A story with which she acknowledged she has always struggled — I suspect that every Jewish feminist has.)

Ultimately she made the case that Korach’s message was true but it came before its time — though she also suggested that Korach’s problem may have been a hidden belief that he himself should be in power (e.g. he wanted to uplift himself by way of devaluing Moshe), and noted that she doesn’t want to uplift women’s mitzvot by devaluing men’s ones — she wants to elevate them all.

She spoke beautifully about baking bread with the right kavanot (holy intentions) of connections with the earth and with God. “Bread baking is not just about the end result; the dough and the baker are both changed in the process. Baking challah… has become like a prayer for me,” a prayer which she believes has the ability to effect cosmic change. (That made me think of my recent post Seeking peace, and about the idea that in pursuing internal peace we can effect change in God.) “The mitzvah of challah is about recognizing brokenness, and building, without ever destroying.”

I appreciate her point that taking on mitzvot which are traditionally understood to be the purview of men is only a partial step toward progress. Taking on tefillin instead of challah, e.g., does nothing to break down the inequality built into the system as we’ve inherited it.  And I resonate strongly with her vision of a world in which men and women together create change in how we relate to gender roles. “The new model,” she said, “will be more just, more healthy, more balanced, and therefore more sustainable.” It’s a very Judy Chicago vision — “and then both men and women will be gentle, and then both women and men will be strong,” etc. (And it’s a very Jewish Renewal vision.)

Part of the process of writing this book, she explained, has been a process of coming to question tradition in certain ways — coming to a place of total egalitarianism and counting women in minyan, for instance. That’s a huge shift from the kind of Orthodox feminism which had been home for her previously. “I decided I wasn’t willing to wait anymore,” she said.

When reading from the section about niddah, she cited the midrash about how at the parting of the Red Sea, even fetuses in their mothers’ wombs were able to see the presence of God because their mothers’ wombs became as transparent as glass. It’s a beautiful piece of poetry, and I liked her interpretation of what it means. Of course the fetuses could see God; “having not yet been influenced by the human world, their connection to God would have been intuitive,” she noted.

The real miracle, she said, was not that fetuses could see the presence of God; it was that people who were already living in the human world could “see” God’s presence! The era of seeing God’s presence is long over. Maybe today we need to think in terms of a different sense. Maybe we need to listen to our own inner voice and trust that it reflects the divine spark within us.

She talked about the problem of male-dominated systems — the halakhic system; the medical system — presuming control over women’s bodies in order to preserve the patriarchal status quo. What would it take for us to be courageous enough to implement a halakhic solution to the challenges of working with infertility within the niddah paradigm which wouldn’t sacrifice women on the altar of “the way things have always been done”?

And she returned to the midrash about the fetuses in their mothers’ glass wombs. “The halakha that the rabbis had been interpreting for centuries felt like opaque and impenetrable walls –” providing a safe enclosure, and/but, also suffocating. “I felt able to see through these traditions and walls, perhaps for the first time, to the presence of God.”

If Judaism is representing something that’s not progressing toward a better world, then it’s worth taking a risk to see what will happen if we change things. To listen to Chanah’s voice. To not be so afraid. Fear will hold us back from a system that’s more just and more holy.

Ultimately, she said, “Torah must be just and good. If not, we are misinterpreting Torah.”

Chanah’s voice is the silent voice. This is of course how women’s voices have so often historically been experienced — silent; or at least, not heard by men; not meant to be heard by men; not honored by men. (Look at the story of Chanah in I Samuel — she goes to pray silently for the deepest yearnings of her heart, and the priest rebukes her because he assumes she is drunk. I’ll be sharing a new poem about that on Rosh Hashanah, by the way.)

What does it mean to seek to hear the silent voice, to read the white fire within which the black fire is contained? I think this is the whole project of Jewish feminism. I’m really excited to read this book and to delve more deeply into the piece of an answer which R’ Ner-David brings to this major question of our time.

 

Preparing for ElulPosted: 28 Jul 2014 06:05 AM PDT

ElulReflections-FrontCoverToday is Rosh Chodesh Av, the first day of the lunar month of Av. One month from now we’ll enter Elul, the month immediately preceding the Days of Awe. Many of us strive to make Elul a month of introspection and spiritual preparation for the powerful holidays ahead.

Last year I blogged daily during the month of Elul, as part of #blogElul, an internet-wide carnival of posts on pre-high-holiday themes organized by Rabbi Phyllis Sommer (a.k.a. Ima Bima.)

Some weeks after the holidays were over, I began receiving email from my friend and teacher Rabbi Daniel Siegel in response to my #BlogElul postings. He suggested that I might share these Elul meditations in printed form, for those who would enjoy having a tangible book to hold and leaf through.

I did a bit of editing and pruning and layout work. And now, in time for the Elul to come, I offer a new chapbook of Elul material: Elul Reflections. Here’s a description:

Prepare for the Days of Awe (the High Holidays) by reading these daily meditations for the lunar month of Elul, exploring the season’s themes of forgiveness, transformation, and change. Each day of Elul is matched with a short essay or poem arising out of that day’s theme. And each theme is a verb, an invitation to action, from “Prepare,” “Act, and “Bless” to “Know,” “Believe,” and “Return.”

This volume is meant to help you enter wholly into the spiritual potential of this month, the season of teshuvah, repentance/return. Also in these pages: a Psalm 27 variation by Rabbi Brant Rosen, a set of other Elul resources, and ample space to jot down your own responses as you do your Elul work.

Of course, you’re also welcome to simply return to my 2013 archives and reread last year’s posts here. And who knows, it’s possible I’ll do #blogElul again this year too, in which case those who subscribe to this blog will receive new material every day of Elul once again! But for those who liked what I shared last year and would enjoy being able to reread those posts in bound form, here you go. My thanks are due to Reb Daniel for his encouragement, and to R’ Phyllis Sommer / Ima Bima for running #BlogElul in the first place.
