Yom rishon, 10 Elul 5769.
In the spirit of Elul, here is one of those precious family moments that briefly takes us from the level above nature to the level of nature.
Rabbi Benny Zippel of Chabad Lubavitch of Utah blows the shofar when family dog, Chewy, decides to add his voice to the mix. Thoroughly enjoyed by all in attendance.
Hat tip to Bagolan (Thanks, Adam.)
West Bank Mama has put together a great edition of Haveil Havalim: #232 - The Back to School Edition. There is so much to read these days -- it's nice to have one place to get a very good taste of what is happening at the Jewish/Israeli grassroots level. A little Torah, a little politics, a few slices of life... Put the kids on the bus, and enjoy a quiet read.
