HH and History Comes Alive In Caesarea

Two unrelated blogbits:

1) The latest edition of Haveil Havalim is available here. Special thanks to Jack for including my “everything you ever wanted to know about using your car’s sunroof as a succah but were afraid to ask” post.

2) As we were entering the Roman amphitheater during our chol hamo’ed visit to Caesarea (B”N, much more on this trip in a future post), I overheard an American girl gush excitedly to one of her companions:

“This is exactly where he was!”

Naively, I assumed she was referring to R’ Akiva or perhaps to some other important historical figure.

But then the young scholar continued:

“This is exactly where Shwekey had his concert!”

Her teachers must be so proud…



  1. I told my daughter that story after you told me and she can't stop laughing about it...

  2. Malke - I was sorely tempted to turn around and make a snide comment to that girl. You'll no doubt be glad to hear that I restrained myself...

  3. Her teachers must be so proud…
    I know exactly what you mean!

  4. Ilana-Davita - I figured you would appreciate this story!
