Shabbat shalom

On the first day you shall take the fruit of majestic trees, branches of palm trees, boughs of leafy trees, and willows of the brook; and you shall rejoice before YHWH your God for seven days.

Leviticus 23:40

  1. Yes; I liked the typo enough that I felt a twinge of disappointment when I verified that they were not “book willows.”

    You may find this amusing (and actually related): I was at a Zoom meeting yesterday, where one of the participants was the Rabbi of Williamsburg’s one synagogue. He was outside and his background was the family’s (somewhat worse-for-wear) sukkah. When asked why it was still up, he said that it was like some of his Christian friends’ Christmas trees as the new year progresses; he just hadn’t gotten around to taking it down. Was planning to do it before this weekend’s predicted rain.
