Some blogosphere detritus worth recommending:
(1) Ayshes Chayil is all lies:
Hat tip Jew Cards
The Chosson's friends may then sing "Aishes Chayil" for the kallah. Even though she's officially been married for just a few hours, she's still managed to seek out wool and linen, bring sustenance from afar, give food to her household and a ration to her maids, consider a field and buy it, plant a vineyard from the fruit of her handiwork, strengthen her arms, support a spindle with her palms, get over her fear of snow, clothe her house in scarlet wool, make bedspreads and garments, deliver a belt to a peddler, and have children who rose up and praised her. That's pretty impressive. Meanwhile, her chosson has managed to split his pants.
(2) A new J-blog, with a fresh, new voice
The measure of a first-rate intellect is its ability to hold two contradictory ideas at the same time. With that in mind, say hello to the Renegade Rebbetzin.
Hat tip: Miriam Blghd.
(3) The apple doesn't fall far from the tree
Foster Boy's sister is the daughter of MoChassid, and a very good writer in her own right.
(4) Yom Kippur out West
Read about the Western Jew'sday.
Tomorrow: the baynonim list of 'Jewish Customs That I Reached Adulthood Without Ever Hearing About' (A high-five, and a sidebar listing, to the person who suggests a less awkward title for this list.)
