An alternately structured and sometimes stream-of-consciousness journal of my view of the purpose and essence of life as a Jew, the importance of the Land of Israel, how to differentiate good from evil, and perhaps even what to do about it. Oh,and also some technology thrown in for good measure. And whatever else comes to mind, actually...
In short: "BLOGITO Ergo Sum"
I saw this posted by a friend on Facebook, and would have missed it completely had she not posted it. It brought tears to my eyes. I am re-posting it, especially for my daughter, who has raised my beloved grandson to be a wonderful young man, who just had his Bar-Mitzvah. Oh, and by the way, he has Down Syndrome.
The coach, and both teams--including the opposing one--should be applauded, for their compassion, and inclusiveness.
And thank you, Michal, for raising such a terrific kid!
Haven't posted yet in February, although there was something pretty important weighing on my mind (Ophir ben-Sheetreet's singing), which I might write about later.
Meanwhile, there was a serious blizzard in the northeast. My daughter Toodles lives in New York, which luckily 'dodged the bullet' and did not even break a record (11 inches of snow was recorded in Central Park. Peanuts.). She did, however, with her cousin's help, build a snowman. Well, a snow-building. The Empire State Building, to be exact. While she was sick. I mean, what else would you do in New York if you're sick?
Nathaniel Bloomenstein, eat your heart out! (You know who you are).
