Inner Visions

This week we read "Vayechi" (ויחי ) the final Parsha (Torah Portion) in the Book of Bereshit (Genesis). How did it go by so fast - again? This week our holy forefather Yaakov (Jacob) gives over his "Inner Vision" of each of his sons who are destined to be the 12 Tribes of Israel. In honor of holy visions, in honor of the end of December whose properties include the attribute of sleep and dreams, we're playing Stevie Wonder's 1973 masterpiece, "Innervisions" today at 5pm Jerusalem Time.
Chazak! Chazak! Venischazeik!
חזק! חזק! ונתחזק 
Be strong! Be strong! And may we be strengthened!

L'Chaim to us for successfully broadcasting our first LIVE Talk and Music Show Wednesday night December 9th - after bravely circumventing all sorts of technical configuration challenges, we managed to get two sets of headphones and a master microphone wired to the mixer and into the computer and voila - there we were, announcing upcoming events (Raz Hartman and Shaul Judelman at Beit HaMayim on Thursday December 10th, etc.) and spinning tunes for our listeners, with the occasional reading of a Facebook entry or a shout-out to friends. Thanks for bearing with us during our Science Project phase - and look forward to much more great original programming to come. Bottoms up, Jack Daniels!
