248

What does the number 248 mean to you?

The simple answer, whether you are Jewish or not, is that a human has 248 limbs.

It is also the amount of positive commandments in the Jewish world.

But the noticeable comparison for me, is the amount of words in Shema.

While I am not always on top of davening, one thing I try to make sure I say correctly, is Shema.

The 248 words there, should always be said carefully, just as carefully as you'd like each of your 248 limbs to be working.

This is also why you add three words at the beginning when praying alone, to compensate for the three word that a Chazzan would say at the end, with a minyan.

This is my first random act of Jewishness on this blog...what is happening to me...

Jewish Writers

Amongst the Bloggers, we are all pretty good at talking about things we know about.

But sometimes people try to be funny, and just come off sounding unintelligent.

Please guys, don't try to write about the internet and the likes, without knowing anything about them.

Calling them "e-invites" instead of "evites" just made me stop reading....close the page...and write this many nonsensical rant.

Jews Are Funny...Sometimes :)

UPDATE: Unfortunately the video was pulled, but I don't pull my Posts :) Just update them!

This video is going around, and I thought I'd share it.
Of a Jewish teen in London making one of the British guards actually laugh.

Hilarious!

Reaching Out

I've had my ups and downs in life.

Most of them occurring for me Post-High School and more-so Post-College.

But sometimes you just need a place to vent, or a place to talk things out. Regardless if the other side has answers for you or not.

I am thankful that some of the bloggers here have listened to me over the years.

You guys know who you are.

On that note, to any random readers reading this (who am I kidding, even I know that no one reads the Minds anymore :) ...although I hit 30k this week!), feel free to email me, or most other bloggers, if you have an issue, and just need someone to talk to.

Most of us don't bite...and the ones who do, are usually doing it in a playful way. Hopefully.
