Wow, and thanks for the comments. This is what happens when a friend of mine runs a Google search on my name - he forwards me a post about my site :)
In answer to you question: yes, I know "Melissa" translates into "honeybee" in Greek, thus the name of my personal site. Melissa, one of two daughters of King Melisseus, the other being Amalthea. Amalthea ("goat") is said in some stories to have suckled Zeus.
My comment about honeybees and Shabbat is because the association is purely intuitive on my part, based on trancework on such. There's nothing (that I'm aware of) to verify such an association.
For those interested in Jewitchery, I've gone live quite recently with a new site focused on the topic: http://www.jewitchery.com. If you have thoughts, essays, articles, book recommendations and/or links to contribute, please drop me an e-mail :)
And thanks again!
