I have been invited by the Washington Jewish Week to write a regular blog on their website. Posts on the new blog, which the editors have named (for now) Maroof's Musings, will probably be of a lighter, more popularly accessible nature than the material you might find here. But I still invite you to check it out! My first two posts:
The Meaning of Lag BaOmer
Hillula - The Other Festival of Lights
In the future, I may repost the material from that blog here, but in the meantime please visit it at its current location!
