  • Techeles in our times: “From the halachic standpoint the mitzva of Techeles is the dominant topic of the parasha.”

  • Larry: Tales of HP (funny)
  • Ilana-Davita: Recipes: Summer Favorites
  • Jew Wishes mentioned Journey from the Land of No by Roya Hakakian (review now offline, sadly), a book I highly recommend, especially if you want to learn about Iran. Roya is a good storyteller.
Ilana-Davita says

Thanks for the link. Just like last year the rudbekias in my garden are very far from blooming.
Shabbat Shalom to you.

Jew Wishes says

I like the perspective of the yellow beauty. The bud in the back will be blooming soon.

Thanks for the link.

Shabbat Shalom.

I like daisy like flowers. Too bad not allowed to count: loves me...loves me not... already cleared that til the end:) It has been an interesting week! Can't wait for kids to go back to school :)

Leora says

Didn't summer just begin? My kids (at least two out of three) are still in school; they have one more week.
