134.01/ Week one-hundred and thirty-four, February 4-10, 2023, thread begins here.

Week 133 below.
134.02/ #MotzeiShabbatMovieNight continues: after the Tim Burton Batman movies, the movie that put him on the map "Beetlejuice (1988)"…
134.03/ #TuBishvat is the Aquaman of holidays. Send tweet.
134.04/ #TuBishvat and #TuBeAv are meant to be six months apart and it's not a coincidence that those times of year (basically February & August) are when daylight waxes/wanes by 8-9 min. a week. Candle lighting goes from 4:51 to 5:00 to 5:08 etc.
134.05/ #NYR win in overtime with an amazing goal that looks scripted. I mean, 2 defenders run into each other trying to block it and the goalie gets so mad that he breaks his stick!

It was an electric game from wire to wire.
134.06/ Procedural question for GenXers: in scheduling a showing of the Star Wars movies, do you show them in order (4-9) & then the acceptable prequels (Rogue One, Mandalorian), or show the prequels in "chronology."

FYI: Eps. 1-3 are non-canonical in my house.
134.07/ Rest in Peace Burt Bacharach (who I didn't know was still alive). Will always remember him for the soundtrack of Casino Royale (1967) [Spoiler alerts for the ending credit song below]…
134.08/ #ChochmatNashim for #Yitro 5783 (Thursday draft) @ChochmatNashim

Downloadable PDF with working links of Orthodox women scholars on the parsha and other Torah for this week.…
134.09/ Uh, oh. This ain't good.

I'm a "machine shmura" man, but even I have an emotional connection to seeing this on the shelves and on the table.…
134.10/ #ChochmatNashim for #Yitro 5783 (Friday Final) @ChochmatNashim

Downloadable PDF with working links of Orthodox women scholars on the parsha and other Torah for this week.…
134.11/ Happy to be in the center of the Venn diagram for this joke.
134.12/ Have a great Shabbos everyone. Stay safe and #ShabbatShalom

133.01/ Week one-hundred and thirty-three, January 28-February 3, 2023, thread begins here.

Week 132 below.
133.02/ #MotzeiShabbatMovieNight continues: one of the best superhero movies ever made, "Batman Returns"…
133.02b/ I'd forgotten all the explicit Moses/Exodus imagery in the movie. So it's perfect for tonight!

Week 131 below.
132.02/ #MotzeiShabbatMovieNight continues, in a way, in between football games. My daughter requested I fulfill a promise to show them some of The Simpsons, so I chose 3 episodes:………
132.03/ This is an amazing Tanakh resource (with an equally amazing backstory involving refuseniks and resistance) and I can't believe it's being sold for under $3.00.…

Week 130 below.
131.02/ #MotzeiShabbatMovieNight continues. Tonight, part of the superhero theme, the second best of the Batman movies, Tim Burton's first (the best is the sequel).…
131.03/ This is Asante Samuel's dream and we're all living in it.

(Also, question: does Al Michaels automatically make games into TNF games now?)

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.……

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.
