Laws and Customs

During the summer months, from the Shabbat after Passover until the Shabbat before Rosh Hashahah, we study a weekly chapter of the Talmud's Ethics of the Fathers ("Avot") each Shabbat afternoon; this week we study Chapter Four.

He replied, “Every word costs.”

“And from the locomotive?”

“Hesitate for a moment and you could lose the whole journey.”
