Yes, we’re on a Midwestern kick this morning. The St. Paul JCC has been a part of the St. Paul community since 1930. It’s a place where individuals, families and communities come together for Jewish culture, child care, fitness, recreation and socialization in a safe, inclusive and welcoming environment. It’s like the 92nd Street Y […]

In looking for interesting videos with a Jewish angle, I clicked on this one out of curiosity (you don’t know me, but I’m a sucker for a good Disney yarn), and it occurred to me that trailers are made very differently these days. It used to be the trailer would tease you into coming to […]

Wherever EU Parliament President Martin Schulz goes, he seems to irritate those pesky Jews. Yesterday he stood at the Knesset podium and spread outright lies about how Israel is stealing water from thirsty Palestinian children.

Mark Dice argues the sale will serve two goals: pay off the national debt to China, so they can sell it for scrap metal; and prevent a nuclear war, which would surely happen should we not pay off our debt. Isn’t that why we bombed Japan? I mean, ya gotta’ pay your national debts, what’s fair […]

You put things differently in a press conference than you do in a fund raiser. This message, from Hamas Interior Minister Fathi Hammad, is for internal consumption: We all have Arab roots and every Palestinian, in Gaza and throughout Palestine, can prove his Arab roots – whether from Saudi Arabia, from Yemen, or anywhere. We […]

I eat two bananas for breakfast, washing them down with my third cup of coffee of the day. It’s what I do and it works for me, keeps me satiated until 2 PM, when I grab my lunch. Anyway, a while back I noticed that monkeys peel their bananas from the top, rather than from […]

I never understood why there should be a conflict between Torah and the Theory of Evolution. I never demanded that God be working in a static, unwavering manner, when everything, but everything in the cosmos in moving and jumping and mutating and splitting and slipping and slithering and gushing. Anyone who sees a problem in […]

I’m not crazy about the fact that this case is being handled by our friends at CAIR, but the attorney being interviewed does mention that forcing a Muslim woman to remove her hijab is exactly like making an Orthodox Jew take off his yarmulke. Discuss.

I’ve been searching the web for points of view for a discussion of the importance of having the office of a Chief Rabbi, and ran into former British PM Gordon Brown’s message to the new Chief Rabbi Ephraim Mirvis. It was well spoken and heartfelt. But then I noticed that the web is packed with […]
