G’morning everyone
Peter Klein
32:30
Monsoon Wedding is one of every caterer’s favorite films. If you think that American bnai mitzvahs and weddings can be over the top and fraught with family issues, this movie evoke the same memories. Brilliant and fun. Must meet the family.

I think the phone numbers are people who are calling into the Zoom. They can only listen and talk. I don’t think they can chat or change their Zoom names.
Harold Levine

Who is going anywhere, anyway?

King David, running from his son Absalom
Peter Klein
40:18
If this Psalm was indeed written as Melech David fled from troops of his usurping son Absalom, this is his KING LEAR moment. It seems, however, that it isn’t as specific as in a drama.
Jinny
40:42
This is like many LGBTQ people who had to separate from their families.
Ellen Poster

what does the first mem add to the root?
Jacob Niemi

At some point, could we get into some of the theories about the word "selah"?

Darina Ivanova

Everybody thought of Faulkner's novel :)
Harold Levine

Sorry for the misspelling, Steve’s correct. Faulner’s novel is Absalom Ablsalom.
Judy Porges Hollander

Renee who is Israeli but not born in Israel calls you like you said as if it were Hebrew.
Darina Ivanova

Faulkners novels are terribly difficult for non-native speakjers to read, but I struggled herpoically with a few of them at university when I had access to the library there.
Jeremy Lawrence
55:41
Faulknerr was a great champion of African Americans
Harold Levine
56:01
If only I could hole up in my apartment for several weeks and read Faulkner. Oh, wait … another lock-down project I won’t ever do.
Megan Cossey

His short stories are easier to read and appreciate, especially when first reading him.
Harold Levine
56:08
Darina, it’s challenging even for native speakers.
Julia Ostrov
56:21
Yael, what are some examples of those names… popular these days in Israel?
Julia Ostrov
57:13
Curious about gender-neutral names too
Yael
57:53
My good friend in Israel has two kids. The girl is Roni and the boy is Guy. Many names are given so they can be pronounced in English.
Harold Levine
58:44
Wasn’t Absalom strangled accidentally by his beautiful long hair? Or is that another story?
Yael
59:04
He gets entangles in a tree by his hair as he flees David

Often original folk tales have a notable lack of coherence. It's only through rewrites that the story has a clear beginning, middle and end.
Betsy Imershein
01:03:03
what is the punctuation for second mem in that first word?
Yael
01:03:18
Cholam
Laurie Krotman
01:03:58
Isn't there something called pseudopygraphy where something is attributed to a writer who did not actually write it
Megan Cossey
01:06:23
Who added the punctuation to the psalms? That would add/change meanings to the psalms i am guessing.

Cliffhanger!
Darina Ivanova
01:12:26
I have Chaucer's Canterbury Tales almost in the original, with only slightly modernized spelling to distinguish betwen U and V and get rid of those S letters that look like F letters. It has a glossary and it is still terribly difficult to read; I only managed a couple of tales before I gave up in frustration because I studied historical libnguistics at university. English just changed too much from Chaucer's time to even Shakespeare's time.
