I get the kid on the left – he’s a king, he wears a crown. The kid in the middle is an Indian chief, hence the feathers. But what’s the kid on the left wearing on his head? I can tell from the Urim V’tumim board on his chest that he’s the High Priest. But […]

I’m not crazy about President Obama’s policy decisions, in fact, on a few of them I’m totally livid. I didn’t like it when he saved the banks instead of saving the American people and the American economy (saving banks didn’t do that).

This is Yafo Street in downtown Jerusalem, on a winter Shabbat morning. The street is nearly empty. No light-rail cars are riding the bare tracks.
