The bad news—Ms. Am Haaretz manages to offend the entire Orthodox community by accident (er, Sefirah—what’s that?)

So there I was, thinking I was scoring major brownie points with Boss #1 by playing Jewish music on the computer. It wasn’t until late afternoon that it finally dawned on me that I wasn’t supposed to be playing music during the semi-mourning period known as Sefirah. So I get the dubious privilege of apologizing to my black-hat boss tomorrow for my ignorance.

Then, halfway to the subway on the way home, it occurred to me that, in the middle of this Sefirah period, I'd published a major post on the subject of Jewish rock music by an Orthodox songwriter. Such timing. So, should I delete the “A musical education” post and publish it again after Shavuot?
