As we celebrate our bar mitzvah episode, and wait for our fountain pens to arrive, Asher describes the halachic underpinnings of the popular ritual. Because it’s Rosh Chodesh Marcheshvan, and therefore don’t have any Jewish holidays to observe, we discuss the Jewish take on Diwali and Halloween. We then pivot to Noah’s travails in this week’s parsha, including becoming drunk (as a pig?) and having a bad (some say very bad) encounter with his progeny. We end on a happy note as the Motor City Cruise, much to Asher’s delight, nabs former Yeshiva University basketball star Ryan Turell.
