AFFLICT YOUR SOULS


 And in the seventh month, on the first day of the month, ye shall have an holy convocation; ye shall do no servile work: it is a day of blowing the trumpets unto you.

And ye shall offer a burnt offering for a sweet savour unto the LORD; one young bullock, one ram, and seven lambs of the first year without blemish:
Numbers 29:7 

And this shall be a statute for ever unto you: that in the seventh month, on the tenth day of the month, ye shall afflict your souls, and do no work at all, whether it be one of your own country, or a stranger that sojourneth among you:
Leviticus 16:29


Also on the tenth day of this seventh month there shall be a day of atonement: it shall be an holy convocation unto you; and ye shall afflict your souls, and offer an offering made by fire unto the LORD.
Leviticus 23:7

The REN (a venue) was closed for Kol Nidre. Anyone know if they will be open tonight to break the fast? Jonesing for those homemade pork rinds in orange sauce.

"Servile work" : associate at big law? C prosecutor? County Court Judge?

Pope comes to town the day all Jews are in temple and off the streets. Coincidence? I think not. Oy vey.

5:08 "fin note"? Who are you? Dashell Hammett? Mickey Spillane? You write the comment about the "broad" as well?
It's 2015 not 1915 tough guy.

Can we discuss the Judge that fired her JA by text message? Can max out defendants eye to eye...but can't terminate her own employee face to face.
