Rabbi Shalom Lewis's blog
So, I'm at a clogged intersection waiting for the sluggish traffic to move when my wandering eye glances a bumper sticker.
What do Thanksgiving and Christmas, Purim, and Pesach have in common? Yes, the pairs are sequential holidays that celebrate good stuff but there is more.
When I think of M&Ms, I think of candy and sweets. I love visiting the M&M store in Times Square with its incredible variety. Almonds. Coconut. Peanut butter and every imaginable tasty ingredient infused into that venerable shell that "melts in your mouth and not in your hand".
