Chabad Hosts Thousands of Eclipse-Chased Across America – Centers along its path offered a Jewish perspective on the spectacle in the sky – Chabad-Lubavitch News

A total solar eclipse streaked across the United States Monday, Aug. 21. In its 70-mile-wide path, people saw the sun disappear behind the moon, turning daylight into darkness, with trails of light streaming through the sky around the silhouette of the moon.

Millions of people witnessed the historic spectacle as the eclipse traveled a path from Oregon to South Carolina. Chabad centers along its route hosted informative and inspirational programs to provide a Jewish perspective on the event.

Streamers of light are often visible around the silhouette of the moon during a solar eclipse, which will take place next on Monday, Aug. 21.

Little houses, every where

Casinhas pequenas brotam em todos os cantos do mundo. Apresentam-se como uma forma mais barata e nova de se construir, tão interessante quanto as residências de inúmeros quartos. Alguns optam por comprá-las, outros por construí-las. E tem gente que quer dar esse mergulho, mas não está totalmente certo quanto à decisão. Será que uma casinha pequena é do tamanho […]

When you live with a body that never gets things right, well, eventually, nothing ever surprises you. Doing something incorrectly is as second nature to my body, as breathing is.

If you live in Scotland and you are aged over 50, every two years they send you out a bowel cancer test kit. All you have to do is supply a smear of your stools, from three separate dates within a ten day period, then post it back to them. It’s that simple and free, so to not do it, seems rather silly. I have to admit that I didn’t do the first one when it arrived, as it arrived on my 50th birthday, not exactly something that filled me with joy, in fact, I put it in the bin. Well, I already knew without someone rubbing it in, just how old I had become. Three weeks ago, my third test kit arrived and I once more set out to comply with their wishes. It all sounds really easy and it is, but when you have problems both with twisting your body and with your dexterity, well, it adds a new level of complexity to the whole thing. Once complete, I put it back in it’s prepaid envelope and asked Adam to post it, then set about life as always, and as always, forgetting all about it. [ ]
