AUGUSTUS.  AUGUST ALL OF US! - ULTIMATE THROWBOACK #TBT
Happy August everybody (and throwback Thursday)!  This lovely summer month is named after the Emperor of Rome in the first century C.E.—Augustus.  Can you say “throwback”?  Augustus had respect for the Jews in Judea and their ruler, Herod.
The fragment of a cup bottom with Jewish symbols from Rome circa 300-350 C.E. shines with menorahs, a shofar, a lulav, and an open Torah ark with scrolls inside.  The design is a potpourri of Jewish symbols still known and used today.  The thick and solid structure of this object is representative of Judaism’s resilience.  The fragmentation of this cup bottom is symbolic of Judaism.  As this cup has survived thousands of years, so have the Jews.   
So while you’re probably sipping from a cup that looks nothing like this, remember that there’s a chance your Judaism has come from ancient Rome — aka has survived A LONG time, even dating back to a time when our calendar months were being named!  #tbt

SUIT UP FOR SUMMER? - HAPPY FIRST DAY OF SUMMER!
 
Lets hope for beach weather this weekend, but even if its a little chilly, we can always go in something a bit more form.
Imagine wearing a bathing suit to the beach. Sounds nice, doesn’t it? Now imagine wearing a suit to the beach. Sound JUST as pleasant?This 1930’s photo from a Tel Aviv beach shows men in suits, and women in long sleeves and skirts reading, relaxing, strolling and sun-bathing along the water. They seem to be enjoying themselves; and likely saved on sunscreen. Tel Aviv Beach, 1934, Collection of the Yeshiva University Museum. 2009.428

HOT DOG, GET YOUR HOT DOG!
Miss yesterday’s Coney Island eating contest?  Worry not…
When I think of July 4th in New York,Coney Island comes to mind. There are so many fun things to do, but who can forget about the hot dog eating contest. Tourists are told that it can’t be missed, but I’m not so sure that my stomach can handle it. This photograph from the 1930s is a classic! If you’re jumping on a boat like this happy group make sure to hold on. If not, eat a hot dog or two for me… I’ll be staying away from them.

RECOVERY WITH A VIEW - FROM TRAIL OF THE MAGIC BULLET
Jewish Hospitals first started opening in the 1840’s. Mount Sinai was founded in 1852 in New York and later spread to cities across the country. The picturesque building seen on this post card is located in Miami Beach Florida. The tropical sight of palm trees outside a hospital window will endorse a speedy recovery.
