Clergy's Children Crowned Chiefs

Wow! Such Nachas.  Both incoming Isreali Chief Rabbis chosen today to serve for the next 10 years are children of former, still living, Chief Rabbis.

Rabbi David Lau is the son of Rabbi Yisrael Meir Lau, and Rabbi Yitzchak Yosef is son of Rabbi Ovadia Yosef.

May they serve their people well.

Club Ceases Clamping Cars

If one were to walk the streets ten years ago, he would encounter nine out of 10 cars outfitted with "The Club".

The Club was a simple open-locking bar placed on the steering wheel that made driving an impossibility unless it was removed from the wheel.

Yet somehow, as quickly as they appeared, they have disappeared.  A recent stroll up my block featured no cars protected with this device.

Anyone have any insights to explain this passing fad?

Until then, if you still have one, you can use  it to stop the neighbors from using your basketball net while you are trying to take your Shabbos nap.
