129.01/ Week one-hundred and twenty-nine, December 31, 2022 to January 6, 2023.

Week 128 below.
129.02/ #MerryNewYear everyone. Sorry: happy... happy New Year.

May 2023 be a year of blessings, joy and justice.
129.03/ CW: Shoah
The fast of the #TenthOfTevet carries a modern meaning as a yahrzeit for those whose day of death is unknown, so it's a poignant commemoration for Shoah martyrs. My minyan is being led by a survivor. It's stirring.
129.04/ The repeated defenestration of Kevin McCarthy, following so soon after the defenestration of Andrew T*te, is why Twitter can still be a fun place to be.
129.05/ Thank you to my old friend Prof. Moshe Simon-Shoshan for his blistering and well-sourced critique of the way Druckman's behavior has been whitewashed & the incalculable damage that he and his supporters have wrought on my own communities.
129.06/ I have absolutely no time this week. Shazbot. I'll do more next time B"N. Stay safe everyone and #ShabbatShalom!

128.14/ Some of my #Chanukah hot-takes now that this Bird Site is on rails towards a trainwreck:

1) Dreidel is a boring game
2) Latkes are about as tasty as flat potato kugel
3) Sufganiyot are bad donuts
4) The Hasmonean kings were pretty terrible.
128.14b/ Two more #ChanukahHotTakes
5) Dairy "gelt" aren't worth it (but pareve is always useful)
6) It's not a minor holiday. Tu B'Av - mentioned in the Gemara - is "minor." #Hanukkah has full Hallel, Al Ha-Nisim, Torah reading, active mitzvot (neirot), etc. It's high Rabbinic.

Week 126 below.
127.02/ #MotzeiShabbatMovieNight pur on hold for a week because we're going to a lecture by Dean Rachel Friedman of Drisha.
127.03/ Watching the #WorldCup - because the championship game in any sport is worth watching - and choosing to support ARG because I have cousins there. Whenever I see a header I think of this C&H:

Week 125 below.
126.02/ #MotzeiShabbatMovieNight continues with Superman (1978) the trend-setter for all modern superhero movies. Also IMO has the best theme music and I *love* movie/TV themes. Brilliant art direction, amazing cast.
126.03/ Reference for NFL euphemisms: (1) "[player showing some] discomfort" = he's injured and in pain, (2) "[player is] shaken up" = he's so injured that he can't get up, (3) "[player is] down" = an injury that would prompt a normal person to call 911.

Week 124 below.
125.02/ #MotzeiShabbatMovieNight continues. Tonight we saw "Samurai Jack: The Premiere Movie." Genndy Tartakovsky is such a great artist and storyteller.
125.03/ #ByeJake. I wish he could've stayed a Met, because every start of his was a pleasure to anticipate & enjoy. Bad seasons were endurable when he took the mound. At his best, he was the best baseball could be. Here's one of his finest moments. #LGM

Week 123 below.
124.02/ Shabbat was wonderful but incredibly rainy. We got to daven mincha & maariv on Sat. afternoon/night at the famed "Shteibelach" minyan factory. Tried again this AM but shacharit in the 6 o'clock hour is not as "factory-ish" as I was led to believe. So we went one block up The name of the synagogue i...
124.03/ We're leaving back to America imminently. It was way too short a trip, and the days were short as well. I didn't get to see so many of my friends and I apologize for that. I'll try to make it up next time (suggested bribe: shawarma)
