My favorite comment this week by Mrs. S: “The Sephardim follow the Shulchan Aruch (R’ Yosef Karo), who – in this case – follows the Ashkenazi Tosafot. Meanwhile, the Ashkenazim follow the Rama (R’ Moshe Isserles), who – in this case – follows the Rambam (Maimonides – not the Ramban (Nachmanides)). This is unusual, because in general, the Shulchan Aruch tends to follow the Rambam, and the Rama doesn’t.” Got that?

Not bad at all for a girl her age! Your daughter is following in your artistic steps.
Thank you for the link.

She is so funny sometimes (in her artistry). She took photos of many, many paintings at the National Gallery - the wonders of a digital camera. A few are actually not too blurry or tilted (like this one).

Mrs. S. says

I enjoyed learning b'chavruta (in a study pair) - on a virtual level, anyway :-) - with you.

Thanks for the link; have an easy and meaningful fast; and Shabbat Shalom!

Leora says

Yes, it was kind of like a chavruta, wasn't it?

Daniel Saunders says
