Good luck to NYC and beyond – the people and the pets. G-d bless America.

Speaking of the people of New York, one of them writes a blog I have been really enjoying over recent weeks. Elad Nehorai describes his Pop Chassid blog thusly: ‘Judaism. Torah. Pop culture. Somehow, they mix.’

Somehow they do, and the result is wondrous: a beautifully written and presented blog that covers topics as diverse as Michael Scott from The Office, the advantages of never having met the Chabad Rebbe, and the man wearing a skirt on the NYC subway who convinced Elad to be a proud Jew.

It’s such a thoughtful blog. Go and take a look.

    Did you know the psalm that was traditionally recited today (as in the day that corresponds in the Jewish calendar to this Tuesday) includes:

    “Deliver me, O God, for the waters have reached until my soul! I have sunk in muddy depths without foothold; I have come into deep waters, and the current sweeps me away.”

  2. Steve Wenick says:

    Chas that Psalm is recited every day during the Shacharit (morning) service because everyday contains the elements of a potential spiritual disaster for which we call upon Hashem to help us remain grounded, safe and secure from the turbulent waters that come crashing upon our shores.
