Surprise Appointment to US Secretary of the Treasury

President Obama has reportedly been having trouble sleeping. After one night of particularly bad dreams the President called on his advisors to discuss the matter. He described a series of dreams which in which he saw American-made Chevys and Fords being eaten by some kind of Chinese car. Obama’s advisors did not know what to make of this, until one recommended a solution. “Um, sir, I worked as a prison wardon once, and we had a prisoner who had an uncanny ability to interpret dreams, he might be able to help…”

The prisoner, Jonathan Pollard, was cleaned up and rushed from his prison cell in Butner, North Carolina, to the White House.

“Jonathan, can you help me with this?” asked the President.

Pollard went on to interpret the dream as referring to an imminent collapse of the American economy, but also gave recommendations as to how to avert the mess. In a novel approach, Pollard recommended that the US government not spend money more than it has.

When the President heard of this great wisdom, he immediately appointed Pollard as Secretary of the Treasury. At the confirmation hearings, in which Pollard did better than any of the other Obama appointees, Pollard promised to get the US economy back in shape within 7 years.

As the new influential man in Washington, Pollard helped Israel clear hurdles to attack the Iranian nuclear bomb making facilities.

However, just before Israel could launch the attack, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Ayatollah Khomeini and eight other top officials in the Iranian regime were found hanged in a secret bunker. It is presumed that the 10 committed suicide rather than face the fallout of the Israeli attack. The people of Persia held parades and celebrations in the streets of Teheran, and marked the day for all future generations as the Day of Freedom.

With the collapse of the Mullah era, Israel and Iran became great friends and created a new super-successful oil and gas conglomerate called IPOAG (Israeli/Persian Oil and Gas) which put OPEC out of business, and subsequently defunded the Saudi global terror efforts. The UN also was forced to close its doors after funding dropped out from both Arab oli states and the US, which stopped paying dues under new directives of the Treasury. Plans are now being drawn up for a new international body, and a new international court of justice based out of Jerusalem.

Jonathan Pollard’s release from prison was certainly seen as a great victory for Jews. However, the amazing chain of events which emanated from the freedom of just one man, that is, the betterment of the American economy, the fall of the Iranian Mullah regime, the success of the Israel/Persian alliance, the end of global terror, and the creation of a healthy international body, in the end furthered and bettered the lot of all mankind.

Yom Tov is about spending time with your family. And while for some families the big once-in-a-lifetime experience is great, for others something low key is the way to go.

A fascinating glimpse into the rich complexity of medieval Jewish life and its contemporary relevance had intriguingly emerged.

Dear Dr. Yael:

My heart is breaking; my husband’s friend has gotten divorced. While this type of situation is always sad, here I do believe it could have been avoided.

The plan’s goal is to provide supportive housing to 200 individuals with disabilities by the year 2020.

Despite being one of the fastest-growing Jewish communities in the U.S. – the estimated Jewish population is 70-80,000 – Las Vegas has long been overlooked by much of the Torah world.

She was followed by the shadows of the Six Million, by the ever so subtle awareness of their vanished presence.

Pesach is so liberating (if you excuse the expression). It’s the only time I can eat anywhere in the house, guilt free! Matzah in bed!

Now all the pain, fear and struggle were over and they were home. Yuli was safe and free, a hero returned to his land and people.

While it would seem from his question that he is being chuzpadik and dismissive, I wonder if its possible, if just maybe, he is a struggling, confused neshama who actually wants to come back to the fold.

I agree with the letter writer that a shadchan should respectfully and graciously accept a negative response to a shidduch offer.

Alternative assessments are an extremely important part of understanding what students know beyond the scope of tests and quizzes.
