Coming this week: Deep Thoughts about What the Madoff Verdict Means for the Jews & Random Ruminations About Our Atlantic Beach Shabbos

We now are on our summer blogging schedule - a lighter volume of postings, more autobiography, less on current events.

Today we were busy with our early laps at the Teaneck Swim Club followed first by a formal photography sitting for our family, then loads of informal photos of everyone in the park, and then by a wonderful outdoor wedding for the daughter of friends in the backyard of other friends in Teaneck. What a delightful day.

This week we expect to have some postings on the Bernard Madoff sentencing to follow up on one of our more popular topics. Our original 12/11/08 post, Is Bernard L. Madoff Jewish?, received many thousands of hits and garnered 62 published comments. We screened and rejected quite a few others.

We also plan to write this week about our Shabbos in Atlantic Beach. It's a remarkable community where we spent for 20 summers growing up. And... it was the setting of a murder on tonight's new episode of "Law and Order - Criminal Intent."

Stay tuned for other follow-up and new topics. You never know what to expect on our Talmudic blog.
