Haftarah Plethora
It’s Hanukkah and the Haftarah Plethora boys have a special Hanukkah gift for our fans. Two in fact. We have a special guest this week, Rabbi Adam Kligfeld, adding some real rabbinic insights to the usual babble and banter. And there’s a new improved opening and closing, thanks to Norm Garr. Rick has a treasure trove of special trope to chant and describe while Larry tries to explain what the sages had in mind when they chose this reading for Shabbat of Hanukkah. Shabbat Shalom and Hag Urim Sameach.
The Mishnah Study Group will be gathering to learn on December 12th with Zwi Reznik.
