Asaf Rabi
02:43:42
Hi, It is a temporary reverb when Rachel and Yair the artist are both unmuted. We might have 30 more seconds of that max in total.

Ed Grossman
03:02:37
Does the term "chulifei haazrachim" (population transfer) also has the reference to the ideological effort to switch populations between Arab and Jewish areas?
Dan
03:05:58
Qu’est-ce que c’est shacknetz??

Israel Gopstein
03:18:07
This is reminiscent of a poem studied much earlier, during the 5 days per week sessions.
Dan
03:18:19
Pistukim= peanuts
Heather Silverman
03:18:34
The same poem. Some are repeats
Yael Gott
03:19:19
Speaking of Z'man Hamashiach?
Barbara Kessel
03:19:38
peanuts are botnim. pistachios are pistuk
Naomi Charnov
03:20:12
phistukim=pistachios, botnim=peanuts I believe
Elaine
03:22:20
Loved that series.
Ed Grossman
03:22:44
S'rugim is available online thru Amazon [prime]
Linda Henry Goodman
03:22:47
As the series emphasized, the neighborhood is fondly known to the s'rugim as "the swamp."
Elizabeth
03:24:56
There was an israeli TV series called Srugim about young, single adult friends who have Shabbat dinner together. It’s kind of a soap opera about their lives.
Dan
03:28:12
Every pin even a safety pin is not safe inside the heart.
Julia Gilden
03:28:24
Reminds me of Tillie Olson’s I Stand Here Ironing. She was American poet, Jewish, labor. Simple work, obligation, love.
Phyllis Steiner-Chicago
03:30:57

Yael Gott
03:32:35

Linda Henry Goodman
03:33:10
One of the central characters in Srugim was Reut.
Sandee Holleb
03:37:10
And so there s truth in fiction..sometimes!
Lawrence Kaplan
03:37:31
She Enters the Café is a play on the prayers when entering and leaving the Beit Midrash. the "tefillah ketzarah" is the give away.
Prue
03:38:01
Heather’s reading is beautiful.
Linda Henry Goodman
03:39:10
Her hair is covered with that headband. It's a dead giveaway.
Gail's iphone4105043416
03:39:50
where can one find prayer on entering Beit Midrash?
Flo & Toby Chapman
03:39:55
Modern orthodox usually are not distinguished by their dress
Ed Grossman
03:40:12
The S'rugim show is focused on this dilemma for modern orthodox
Elaine
03:40:53
In Hineni it sounds like she's gone to the mikveh.
Harriet
03:41:09
I have the Safety Pin poem hanging in my laundry room above the washing machine. I find it motivational.
Lawrence Kaplan
03:41:36
It's mentioned in the Gemara. I would have to check. But at the end, the rabbi when leaving prays a short prayer, "tefillah ketzarah" same words as in poem.
Ed Grossman
03:41:37
I like the juxtaposition of the traditional prayer and the coffee shop setting
Susan Shevitz
03:41:39
The combination of naïveté, self knowledge, hope and fear of hoping too much is charming.
Reuven Greenvald (he/him)
03:50:06
the song was first sung by Rita — it was about straight love. when it was sung by gay Ivri Lider and applied to the movie it was heard homo-erotically.
Sandee Holleb
03:51:05
My synagogue choir sang a song, “Stand in the light and be seen as you are.”
Dorothea Dorenz
03:52:33

Varda Farber
03:57:27
Rachel, we met Tehila Goldberg and Reut Hamberg in an earlier session. What decade and topic was that?
stanleykay
03:58:28
Always same link
Lawrence Kaplan
04:04:44
as I noted earlier, in the poem Coke and Jeans the reference to the Akedah is incorrect. the Hebrew references to Parashat Toldot, which is two parshiyyot AFTER Akedah. What is significance of reference to Toldot is unclear to me.
Varda Farber
04:05:14
Thank you for another very interesting session.
Dorothea Dorenz
04:05:28
hi Rachel, I am dorothea and have raised my hand for a while but perhaps you are confusing me with Dorothy?

Reuven Greenvald (he/him)
04:05:55

Miriam Seelig
04:06:35
I recommend reading a great book Harvey Milk
Lawrence Kaplan
04:06:56

I am not a great housekeeper, and Women’s college’s urge “do something” not be housewife. Husband and our son had “laundry fights” as they folded laundry together. So now son knows it’s o for men to do so.
stanleykay
04:14:07
My orthodox (modern, married in 1914) a perfect,Jewish wife, of some $ supervised her cook and 2 weekly laundress. did not diminish her being the Woman of Valor to her adoring husband.
Paul Slater

Hotel Corona demonstrates how all sorts of people, Jews and non-Jews can get along -all are united by being quarantined.
Lawrence Kaplan
