Larry claims that the haftarah for T’tzavveh is a haftarah sandwich, boring and filled with scribal errors. Rick points out that no haftarah that has four (count ‘em) pazers in one verse, a record for any haftarah, can be considered boring. The boys are still looking for a tape measure in cubits.
The Mishnah Study Group will be gathering to learn on February 27th with Barry Rosenblatt.
