An Ovation for a Last Place Finish

From Yahoo Sports:

Samia Yusuf Omar of Somalia reacts after a heat of the women's 200-meter. (AP Photo/Anja Niedringhaus) A small girl from a chaotic country (Somalia) didn't win a medal, but she won hearts during her 200-meter run. It’s about a girl whose Beijing moment lasted a mere 32 seconds – the slowest 200-meter dash time out of the 46 women who competed in the event. Thirty-two seconds that almost nobody saw but that she carries home with her, swelled with joy and wonderment. Back to a decades-long civil war that has flattened much of her city. Back to an Olympic program with few Olympians and no facilities. Back to meals of flat bread, wheat porridge and tap water.

What is the difference between a blog and a website?

A blog, short for web log, is a website. The focus of most websites is to present information but the focus of a blog is to present opinoins and gather feedback from the readers.

Beth Shalom Presents Neshama Carlebach

Week end of 2008-09-12

Neshama Carlebach, daughter of the late revered Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach, will make a rare Detroit area appearance September 12-14 leading a Soul of Carlebach weekend at Congregation Beth Shalom in Oak Park, Michigan. The weekend begins Friday night at 6 p.m. with a family dinner and a special Carlebach Kabbalat Shabbat service where Neshama will speak and sing.

On Saturday, following religious services where she will speak, Neshama will share stories of her father at a Lunch and Learn. The highlight of the weekend will be Sunday afternoon at 4 p.m. when Neshama performs in Beth Shalom's annual Cantor Sam and Mona Greenbaum Concert. There will also be a special Saturday night private patron event for Patron-level sponsors of the Greenbaum Concert. All events are open to the community.

Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach changed the face of Jewish music, and his songs have inspired Jewish congregations around the world. He is considered by many to be the foremost Jewish religious songwriter in the second half of the 20th century. In a career that spanned over 30 years, he recorded more than 25 albums that continue to have wide popularity and appeal. His influence continues to this day, in part through his daughter, Neshama. Neshama continues her father's legacy with a deep spirituality and charisma that draws audiences wherever she performs. She sings not only her father's music, but her own original songs as well.
