Random Musing Before Shabbat - B'har-Bekhukotai 5775 - Keri Is so Very... (Revisted from 5763)
[Author's Note - 5775 - only folks above a certain age will get the title of this musing. In the mid 1980s, Westwood Phamaceuticals introduced a new dry skin lotion, with the name "Keri" and marketed it with the slogan "Keri is so very..." You can see one o...

Random Musing Before Shabbat - Emor 5777 - Mum's The Word (Revised and Revisited from 5760 and 5766)

TV commercial FAIL. Anyone else noticed the recent DELTA advertisement touting their hard-working, early-to-rise and off to work employees, with the background music playing the oft-misremembered "Heigh Ho" from Disney's "Snow white and the Seven Dwarfs" in which you can clearly and plainly hear the dwarfs singing the actual lyrivcs of "...it's HOME FROM WORK we go..." did anyone from Delta, the advertising agency that created the ad, or th eproduction company that filmed/created it evebn pay attention to the lyrics of the songs they were syncing to the ad? TOTAL FAIL by all parties involved. (Also, to all you grammar wonks, prior to the popularity of Tolkein, "dwarfs" was the preferred plural. "The Hobbit" was published in September 1937, just a few months before Disney premiered their original Snow White in December, 1937. Some sites incorrectly state that the movie premiered in February 1938, but that was its general release.)

Random Musings Before Shabbat - Acharei Mot-Kedoshim 5777 - Insults Don't Weigh Anything (Revisited from 5767) (or A Hymn to Homonyms)

Random Musing Before Shabbat - Sh'mini 5777 - GEFTS 20th Anniversary
It's  hard to believe that I've been writing these musing for over 20 years. Over the years I've seen my viewpoints and interpretations on many parshiyot and haftarot change, adapt, transform even come a full circle. The one I am resharing today certainly r...
