+Adam Kenigsberg What do you guys do in Israel when Shabbat starts right as pesach ends? Are there leniences and techniques that you can use to get Chametz, or do you just have to be pesadik for an extra day?

+Adam Kenigsberg: But how many Ashkenazim do you know who, if for some totally legitimate reason they had to make kitniot on pesach, would have a special kitniot pot set aside for the purpose so it wouldn't "traif up" their Pesach pots. I'd bet it's a reasonably large number, and whether or not there's actual basis in Ashkenazi psak to require it, Rabbi Raccah needs to tell his Sepharadim that we need to be mindful of this attitude among Ashkenazim if we're going to be serving food to them on Pesach.

We're planning a Davis Minyanaaires reunion shabbat in LA for Parshat Va'etchanan. I think I've successfully contacted everyone who lives in LA, but if I missed anyone, or anyone unexpected happens to be passing through that weekend (+Adam Kenigsberg?) please speak up.

Fire in the green line tunnel at Arlington. And they tell me at Blandford that the train isn't going any farther. If they'd tell me at BU Central, I could adapt by taking the CT2. If they'd run to Hynes, I could take the 1 across the Harvard Bridge. But no! They have to drop me off in the middle of nowhere. #mbta

gravity:
1. The force that attracts a body toward the center of the earth, or toward any other physical body having mass. For most purposes Newton's laws of gravity apply, with minor modifications to take the general theory of relativity into account
2. Seriousness or solemnity of manner

Is the concept of arayot really so anathema to Reform Judaism that they changed the wedding blessings to not mention them?

+Adam Kenigsberg: And besides that, the rabbi says the translation so the guests understand.
