I know this isn’t a picture of Jews or of Israel, but it was taken by a Jewess, if that counts for anything…and besides, someone wanted a less disturbing image going into Shabbat, so I offer this one, taken last week on my cruise. Shabbat shalom…

  • When it comes to Esther or Mufti, I have to admit, I just like the picture for that reason alone. Good people… different political spectrum than I, but still, very good people.

  • I like on these cruises, when you want to know when Shabbat starts, just ask the captain when is sundown round here.

    Hey did you see any of that Players rum, the taste and effect are second to none.
