Misfortune Mars Mount Meron Merriment

Growing up Lag Baomer meant going to the park during school and, as Abie Rottenberg notes, playing That Game.

In recent years thousands have flocked to Meron to participate in huge bonfires.

Although there is precedent in the Sephardic and Chassidic communities, the Litvish Yeshivos were never really part of this phenomenon until recently.

I suppose it is because today's children need some kosher outlets and this is one of them.

In any event, as many Gedolim have said, it is better to stay in the Beis Medrash and learn than to go to Meron.

Similarly, it is better to stay home and Daven with family than to travel to Uman for Rosh Hashana.

Condescending Covid Commander-in-Chief Cuomo - Criminal Conduct Crushes Career

See how the mighty have fallen. One year ago this man lectured us on Covid, won an Emmy award and was on the fast track to the White House. But now that it is becoming clear how he sent seniors to their deaths, covered it up, and has been labeled a Menuval, his career is over. Good Riddance.

Covid Cures Congestive-(pricing) Concept

Today I sailed through Manhattan, with ease. It seems that this miniscule bug that has wreaked havoc on our lives has at least one positive aspect in that I haven't heard any politicians speaking about congestive pricing recently.

Whippersnapper Whackos Whack Whitehouse

What a sad end to Trump's presidency. He accomplished so much in the past 4 years. It is disheartening to see it end this way.

Oldies Organized on OffTheRecord (Baruch Levine)

Continuing the trend started by Yaakov Shwekey 3 years ago, Baruch Levine has come out with a new recording of many of the favorites of yesteryear. MBD, Fried, Miami, Journeys, Moshe Yess, JEP - many of the best niggunim of our childhood come back to life on this recording. While Shwekey used an image of a casette tape for his cover, Baruch uses the image of a vinyl album. Worthwhile to get your children to appreciate these oldtime melodies, and it may just prompt one to pull out the old tapes and records and relive those nostalgic times of your childhood.
