Greetings! We meet again at the appointed time, to draw breath, reflect on what has been and what will be. I hope you all had a great week.
The highlights for me included the early morning birthday call to nephew Nathan, a visit from brother-in-law Nathan, watching the intriguing Chelsea-PSG game, and the incredible Robotics event at Tel Aviv. And I went to the gym far too often!
The lowlights were few, thankfully, though I have to say the Ra’anana hustings was a big disappointment.
But onward and upwards.
Here are this week’s selection of links. Enjoy.

A fitting bonus to get in the Shabbat mood. Here’s a wonderful rendition of Lecha Dodi (from the Friday night Kabbalat Shabbat service) done by Refael Mirila and Asaf Flumendorf to the music of John Legend‘s All of me. Simply beautiful:
