The Feast of Weeks

Shavuot, which we begin celebrating next Tuesday night (May 18), is the only holiday not listed in the Torah by the date on which it is to be observed.

JDates and Worrying

Count Down to Mother’s Day

This is my first year in many years that I do not have to work on Mother’s Day. Woo-Hoo! I have been excited for months. I kept cautiously checking the calendar at work and each time confirming with myself that “no one books an event on Mother’s Day.” True enough, nobody booked an event.

Who Drinks The Water?

It’s a classic ethical dilemma: Two people are lost in the desert with only one water bottle. There is not enough water for both people to reach civilization. Who gets the water, or do they share it (and both die)?
