If you’re not familiar with the saga surrounding the discovery, acquisition, translation and subsequent publications of the Dead Sea Scrolls, you don’t have enough excitement in your life. For the latest criminal investigations involving a major case of lashon hara, read up on the latest article from the New York Times in which a debate regarding the identity of the Qumran community ends up in an arrest for identity theft.
Just wanted to wish everyone an early Chag Sameach! (Happy Feast!) Purim will be here shortly, so… remember Mordechai and the salvation of Hashem, and do not to forget to blot out the name of the accursed Haman! Shalom!
fyi – when you post a comment on my site for the first time, it will be held for approval. After your first comment is approved, you may post your comments freely without approval, so they will appear immediately without a lag, awaiting my approval. So… if you’ve had a comment approved already on my new site, then you’re good to go. If you haven’t posted a comment yet, there’s no better time than the present.
I just found one of my desktop wallpapers on encyclopedia.com on their Sabbath article. They show a few topically “related” images and offer their viewers to rate the images. I’m asking that you would go to the site and vote for my Sabbath wallpaper to keep it in the top position (which it is currently). Thanks for your help!
FYI – In the next few days I plan on making available my Passover Haggadah for sale on the site for anyone who might want to use it for this year’s Passover Seder. It will include a full-color cover, spiral binding (so that it will lay flat at the Seder table), and approximately 62 pages of original content (well, as original as you can get without straying from the basic text). I will also include some audio to go along with it. I will also re-post the electronic version in PDF format for free download for those who would like to print their own. I am in the process of making the final edits & corrections now. If you are interested in this resource, I would really like to hear from you.
