Taste of Torah by Rafi Glazer, AJSS Director of Programs
Wear Sunscreen. This advice, while logical and straightforward, is also the beginning of one of the most common graduation songs of the late 90’s. Written first as a commencement day speech and turned into a spoken word song, it contains a large list of tips and advice to get the most out of life. As we get to the end of AJSS’s 65 Summer of Service, many adages come to mind that can be included in this week’s Taste of Torah. Like any good graduation or commencement speech, there are plenty of sayings that could be featured as information to pass on to a graduating class. As we will see below, there is no end to the helpful advice that we can get from a song like “Wear Sunscreen” or from this week’s Torah Portion.
