Sylvie Drake is retelling a very old husband-rabbi joke. According to Linkdin, Drake is Director of Publications at The Denver Center for the Performing Arts, and Advisor/editor at Denver Center Theatre Company. They’re doing Arthur miller’s Death of a Salesman in September. With Kevin Bacon. You see? It all ties up. I was just kidding […]

Mel Brooks does the Indian ichthyologist on “The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson” in 1970. The SNL fans in the crowd will spot the roots of the Jaws sketch that was stolen, most likely, directly from this routine. Might as well steal from the great ones. Ichthyology (from Greek: ikhthus, “fish,” and logos, “study”) is […]

I wrote recently about the moment when your baby tastes ice cream for the first time, how his or her eyes light up, and they appear to be reevaluating their future on this strange, new planet, from a much more optimistic point of view. Anything a baby experiences for the first time must be an […]

Since it was uploaded, Apr 6, 2011, this video has had 6,307,269 views as of Thursday morning. So chances are it isn’t going to be removed any time soon. But, according to its creator, Redemption1948, “the Arabs who occupy the land of Israel want this video to be removed.” It repeats some well known facts […]

It’s just one, short line, but it packs a lot of historic subtext… As to all of you Jewish non-Python fans — well, there’s no such thing.

I went looking for videos that would best fit the somber day of 17 b’Tammuz, and I went away feeling that if I embedded here one of those guy-sits-in-front-of-smartphone-camera clips, or even the better ones, I would just tire you out and you’ll never click on it to watch. So I plugged in the words […]

I’m not arguing with all the true facts being raised by Congressman Ron Paul – of course he’s right. Every single thing he’s saying makes perfect sense and should be paid attention to by our policymakers – and that’s the source of my despair. Because no one ever listens to Ron Paul. What’s the point […]

In case you’re having one of those lazy Sundays with no plans at all — it beats a lot of other things you could be watching. Also, if you haven’t seen it but were ashamed to admit it — here’s your chance to catch up. And, of course, it’s also a dynamite movie. Music by […]

Here’s an exciting 1981 news report, about how some day people will be able to download an entire newspaper and watch it with their breakfast right on their computer screen, no fuss, no fresh ink on their fingertips. Do you believe it can happen in our lifetime? Mind you, like the anchor lady says, it […]

Shalom Sesame: Seth Rogen with Elmo, word of the day: Todah. Elmo’s been in trouble recently, but still, Kevin Clash, the Elmo puppeteer who resigned amid allegations that he sexually abused underage boys, has just won three Daytime Emmy Awards for his work on “Sesame Street.” Not sure if he said: Todah.

It was fascinating to watch this discussion, between Kuwaiti Scholar Jassem Al-Mutawa, who seems like a sweetie—if you manage to look across the many cultural divides—and another scholar, on the merits of disciplining one’s spouse. If we can overcome our essential disgust with the discussion of women as objects, it is interesting to see the […]

Lenny Cohen is where I’ve been going most of my life for a reflection of my own sadness. He doesn’t lie about the human condition, he doesn’t offer false hope, heck, he doesn’t offer much hope at all. But if beauty in the face of hardship is what you’re looking for, there’s a wellspring of […]

Every morning I look for a good, clean “Old Jews Telling Jokes” joke to share with you, and most mornings I give up after a few minutes, because most of the jokes being told by these old Jews just don’t belong in a fine, Orthodox website. This one, thank God, is clean. Incidentally, I don’t […]

Who’s on First? Rabbi Steven Schwartz as “Father Mulcahy” and The Most Interesting Jewish Man in the World (Cantor Thom King) give a Purim version of a Hebrew Lesson- adapted from Rabbi Jack Moline. The acting could get better, but the jokes are well thought out. Worth the 5 minutes!

Strange, how the late Rabbi Kahane’s views have moved from the extreme right to the center in 20 years. Never mind his political agenda — while I can’t speak for anyone else, I personally could not endorse the transfer of Arabs any more than I would the transfer of Jews (although it’s interesting how those […]

Or, at least, it’s showing a hairy creature knocking over a lawn chair and taking a few sips from the pool water. Now, you may ask, what’s Jewish about Bigfoot? The answer is that there’s also a security sound recording of the same creature saying She’hakol.

An Iranian scholar argues that the entire Tom and Jerry cartoon enterprise was erected by the Jews in order to remove the shame of Europe, where they were called “dirty mice.” On the way he confuses Walt Disney (who was no big fan of Jews) with Hanna Barbera, the creators of Tom and Jerry. He […]
