This past Sixthday (the th is silent), the 27th of Teiveit, was the jahrzeit for R' Shimshon Refa'el Hirsch, founder of the Torah ‘im Derekh Eretz philosophy of Modern Orthodox Judaism.

On Shabbos, after Minhha and before Ledavid Barukh I heard a speech whose main point could be summarized as "WWRSRHD?"

What Would R' Samson Rafael Hirsch Do?

(more later, because...)

[live, in New York — it's Motza'ey Shabbat!]

Okay, sorry everyone. My computer broke and I finally sent it in to get it fixed today. So it's aggravating and awkward to try and use other people's computers, especially when they don't have a Hebrew keyboard layout. I mean, please, what kind of Jew doesn't have their computer set up to type in Hebrew when necessary? It's a shanda! Anyway, there is nothing more to this post. Maybe some other time.

Nope, no tickets... that's just an old instant-messaging away message of mine for when i'm out having fun on the motzaey. I was actually playing games with friends from college in Brooklyn.

Yes yes, bracelets!

I have, by the way, plagiarized wwrsrhd for my war on wwjd.

I need something to occupy the long dreary months until the next war on the war against the war on xmas.

The Rambam might call it a michemes mitzvoh.

I meant 'milchemes mitzvoh'.

Darn these arthritic digits.

maybe you could type up an explanation of how someone who *wanted* to take on the "mitzvah" of typing in Hebrew on a computer keyboard could bend the computer to her will...
