Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-Up
I get heat from some of my friends for my interest in watching Olympic swimming. I am sorry that I prefer to watch Americans go for the gold over a pointless Monday night preseason NFL game. Anyway, I love Phelps, but nothing beats this headline from this past week: Two Jews and a black man help Phelps fulfill Olympic dream. Shabbat Shalom to Garrett Weber-Gale and Jason Lezak, who had an amazing comeback to beat the French in the 4×100 freestyle relay. Haaretz.com had this to say about Lezak, Lezak – a good Jewish boy from California – put on a great show. Such a shayna punim. Here are some stories I did not have the chance to write about duing this past week:
