Let My People Throw

As an avid Red Sox fan, I was thrilled to discover Jews on First, a blog about Jewish professional baseball players.

And I thought the only connection we had to baseball was Sandy Koufax and Hebrew National hotdogs.

Tweetie Pie

Creative writing student and cooking enthusiast Maureen Evans uses Twitter to promote her recipes.

From what I can tell, 140 characters never tasted so good.

I love Twitter, and I find it handy that my tweets feed right into my Facebook status update. It's like filling two birds with one tweet, or something like that.

And Twitter's enforced brevity is like having my high school English teacher watch every keystroke. But there's no extra credit for using really big words.

The Other Four Questions

Why on this night do we have to listen to a really long story before we eat?

Why does gefilte fish look so unappetizing?

Why does my brother find the afikoman year after year?

Why do we do it all over again the very next night?

Next year in Jerusalem.
