Bridge Bridges Boroughs Bicyclists


I've written several times about bicycling in Brooklyn. So this is welcome news that we will hopefully be able to pedal the 46 mile loop one day. I suppose it will take as much time to complete this project and it will take for one to build up resistance for a 50 mile ride. Start training now!

Mega Mikvah Mayim Metaher Men


Being a Litvak, I nevertheless make an effort to attend the Mikvah twice yearly; Erev Rosh Hashanah and Erev Yom Kippur.

Lately I've been going to the second largest Mikvah in the world. The Atlantic Ocean.

The late September, early October coolness leaves the beaches free of Nekaivos, enabling me and the many other men who attend to enjoy a late season dip.

The waves are terrific, and if not for the shortage of time on these Erev Yom Tov days, I would enjoy a real swim.

Come join me next year, perhaps we can start a Jewish Polar Bear Club.

Shlomo's Shabbos Shiurim Shine - R Shlomo Pearl ZTL



Reb Shlomo Pearl and a few friends taught in public school as a profession, in order to give themselves ample time to study Torah.

Not only did R' Shlomo study, but he became a world-class Talmud Chachom, understanding and explaining the intricacies of Hilchos Shabbos.

BDE.

C.C. Comforts Cancer Campers



It was very nice for CC Sabathia, Yankees star pitcher to come and visit Jewish children in Camp Simcha.

My only wish is that the "People of the Book" should treat their religious leaders with similar pomp, and should honor them with police escorts and chorused cheering.

Troublesome T-shirt Tags Terminated


Some of the most simple things in life come along with annoyances. For example, ever since I can remember, underwear came with sewn on tags that scratched and itched the wearer.

Bless the person who came up with the idea of having the info indelibly inked onto the garment itself.

Why didn't I think of that?

Billionaire Bloomberg Bolsters Bibi


It was a real nice gesture on the part of former NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg to show solidarity with his Israeli Brethren.

Even though he has his own jet, he traveled to Eretz Yisrael on the national carrier El Al, to show that the FAA ban on Israeli travel was out of place.

Thank you!
