Five for Friday

It is terrific to have another rest day off before the return to work. Even if Friday Рespecially during the early start months Рis a bit of a strange day, dealing with loose ends is a better way of getting ready for work than going straight from holiday mode to desk mode.  Unfortunately for those observant Jews in the diaspora, they are enduring a three day chag and will not surface until motzei Shabbat. That is tough. For some, that alone is a reason to make aliyah!

I have not shirked my scheduled posting duty, so you will find a range of links for your interest, to kick the weekend off with something serious, sad, smile-inducing, or strange.

Shabbat Shalom!
