Assorted blogbits

In lieu of a full-length post, here are several items of interest or note:

1) The following fascinating video tells the tragic story of the “Lamed-Heh” – the 35 brave Palmach fighters who set out to provide desperately-needed ammunition and supplies to Gush Etzion’s beleaguered defenders 65 years ago this week:

2) The latest Kosher Cooking Carnival is available here. Special thanks to Ester for including my apple cinnamon cupcake post.

3) Tis the season… for pomelos. If the list of search terms leading to this blog over the past few weeks is any indication, people around the world have apparently developed a sudden interest in learning how to eat a pomelo.

4) As was the case four years ago, YZG and I once again find ourselves deliberating between strategic and ideological voting. How about you?

5) Mazal tov to guest blogger Malke and her family on the birth of a grandson! May his parents be privileged to raise him to Torah, to chupah, and to maasim tovim!

!שבת שלום ומבורך


  1. Thank you Mrs S! If he appears on your blog then our new grandson, Ro'i, must be official!

  2. Malke - Your grandson, the celebrity! :-) It's a beautiful name, and YZG and I were so happy that we were able to attend the brit. May you continue to have only nachat from Ro'i, his parents, and the rest of your family!
