8th grade science class introduced us to photosynthesis and related natural environment life cycles.  Man has cleared land for years with impunity and now we wonder "why" and "what happened" to the natural cycles of the past.

"There is a fascinating parallel to the alternative approaches to Shabbat within our biblical tradition. In one version of the Ten Commandments we find the “religious” reason for cessation of work on the Sabbath: “For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea and all that is in them, but he rested on the seventh day.” In Exodus we find a “social” reason: “So that your male and female servants may rest, as you do,” basing the commandment on our people’s formative experience as an enslaved nation. This is, after all, the great innovation of Judaism: incorporating faith with a commitment to social justice, or – as Mordecai Kaplan aptly labeled it, promoting a religion of ethical nationhood."

Old souls recalled times when they were children, and the Astrodome was like nothing anyone had ever seen. Houstonians queued for almost a mile to get a peek inside, and they remembered when the dusty old stadium was a glistening wonder. The architectural marvel may have faded with modernity, but the experiences from its early days live on in local hearts.

Enjoy!
 
I learned this old song from a friend who passed away this week. The clip comes from a Scottish Festival in Dallas last May ... my son Jaime joins me on octave mandolin.

I hope you'll give it a listen. Thanks

Rome, on the banks of the Tiber River not far from the Mediterranean Sea, is an excellent starting place to explore European Jewish history. Home to a Jewish community of 13,000 that has lived here since the second century B.C., the city offers many Jewish places to explore.

Yes, it's basically a big ad for Friskies cat food, but this video is so well done that it's almost hard to believe you're watching a commercial (until the actual sales pitch, anyway). In this vid, which the cat food company did with Buzzfeed, a ...
