Unraveling Tapestries

January 25, 2018, by

By “unraveling tapestries,” we refer not to un-weaving pieces of Medieval textile art typically depicting battle scenes or, for some reason, unicorns.

(The feat of unraveling these […]

Here We Go Again!

December 11, 2017, by

We read the Torah each week, finishing it every year, and most of us know the basics fairly well. We’re also pretty familiar with the megillos of Esther and Ruth, which we read on Purim and Shavuos, respectively.  But most of us are not quite so familiar with Isaiah and Jeremiah, despite their ubiquity in […]
