Yoiseph.
glad to see you back in action. Nice link into a crucial strain of that giant storehouse of Jerusalem memory.

I totally dig your blogging. I like where youre coming from and how you stubbornly embrace your unique identity. But most of all, i dig how that identity taps into a seemlessly endless supply of Jewish stories. Keep the drasha coming.

I recently started a blog with similar ideas but a different context and aesthetic. Come check me out brother:

And if, you're still in the Kiryat Yud next year, i will hopefully be ascending in that direction myself. So send a shout out.
-peace, jBlock

yeah it's cool that growing herb in Jerusalem is so easy, but it sucks when someone just comes and steals your plants right out of the earth.

sometimes i'll just google words like "marijuana" and "jewish" is how I got this piece. The rest, i guess it's just from walking around Jerusalem with questions. for years.
