Too ‘Hot’ for Comfort, Temp Sues Orthodox Bosses in Failure to Communicate

The owners of Native Intimates are Orthodox Jews. That by itself is not exactly shocking, since Jews of all stripes have been running New York's garment industry since the early 20th century. What's unique about this particular outfit is their poor choice in letting go a female temp at their warehouse because she looked and dressed too provocatively for the workplace.

I Want to have Your Baby, Sarah Silverman

Let's talk about motherhood and babies, and why some young girls start planning their weddings at age 7 and have the albums to show for it.

Sarah Silverman to Play Woman of Questionable Morals in Western

The part where they steal one of the guys' black hat is particularly Kishiniev.

Drake: ‘I’m a Proud Young Jewish Boy’ and I Want My Re-Bar Mitzvah

Drake says: "When I had a Bar Mitzvah back in the day, my mum really didn't have that much money. We kinda just did it in the basement of an Italian restaurant, which I guess is kinda like a faux pas. I told myself that if I ever got rich, I'd throw myself a re-Bar Mitzvah. That's the concept for the video."

Cartoon Rehab: It’s Miller Time, Sort Of

Today's cartoon is from Al-Watan (Qatar), from way back in May 13, 2003. The U.S. and Israel are shown eating from two sides of an apple that represents “the Arab states.” According to the middle-east-info.org, where we found it, this cartoon is noteworthy because it was published in Qatar, home to the Al Jazeera TV network. Qatar is considered by many in the U.S. State Department to be a U.S. ally and a relatively moderate state.

Jewish State from River to Sea a Better Place for Arabs

Remember what Albert Einstein said about the definition of insanity as doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results?

At Last, Shimon Peres Gets his US Citizenship

Of course, it's just a typo, but, you know, come to think of it, wouldn't many of us have preferred it if Shimon were to do what he does on the other side of the pond?

Too Much Symbolism? South Bronx Kids Visit Anne Frank Center Betwixt Freedom Tower and...

Is there such a thing as too many metaphors for the triumph of the human spirit packed into one sidewalk, especially such a crowded sidewalk near Wall Street (add that, too, to the mix, wrap in an American flag and call it a day?). But I'm probably being too cynical. It's actually a heart warming story.

Church Official: ‘If You Flatten a Globe, Israel Is at the Center’

Malcolm Hedding, an associate pastor of the World Outreach Church in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, was executive director of International Christian Embassy Jerusalem, which has a constituency of 14 million in 110 countries, according to Hedding. “Its main mission is to repair bridges opened up between Christians and Jews because of historical anti-Semitism.”

Careful, You May Be Rooting for the Wrong Side in Turkey

What's most striking to me is how similar things in Turkey are to things in Israel.

‘Jerusalem Post’ or ‘Palestine Post’?

Well, years ago they actually were called The Palestine Post…

Al Jazeera: Why Can’t the Syrian Army Be as Moral as the IDF?

It's amazing that Al Jazeera is already saying openly, even heatedly, what Haaretz hasn't yet gotten around to saying.

It’s OK for Sarah Silverman to Wear a Cross

Does anyone among our readers feel outrage at the image of this Jewish girl from upstate New York with a cross around her neck?

Presidential Conference “Facing Tomorrow” While Facing Away from Observant Jews

Who on those panels has any connection whatsoever to me, to my shul, to our children? What does any of those folks know about the explosion of Torah learning in Israel, about our packed houses of worship, about our proliferation of loan societies, about our irrepressible demographics?

Fleeing Islamists to US, Omar Sharif’s Grandson Comes Out as Gay and Jewish

"I write this article in fear," starts Omar Sharif Jr.'s revelatory article in the Advocate, which dishes out coming out stories to fit every pallet. This one involves an Egyptian TV and screen actor, grandson of a Hollywood legend, who fled his homeland for the safety of America. And he's probably Jewish, too.

No More Hebrew Classes in North Texas University, Registrar Glitch Blamed

For the past 10 years, UNT has been the only university in the North Texas area where students could study Hebrew outside of seminary. But, according to NTDaily.com, after many years of low enrollment, the program is being eliminated. Ruth Precker, the adjunct professor hired in 2002 to teach Hebrew, believes the program’s recent low enrollment is due to issues with the registrar – there was a glitch!

Musical Putsch: Balkan Beat Box Gig in Munich on Holocaust Day

The Israeli band Balkan Beat Box will continue its successful world tour with a concert on Wednesday evening in Munich, Germany – striking a nerve for some in Israel because it is the start of Yom Hashoah, Holocaust Remembrance Day. All entertainment venues, from shows to restaurants, are shuttered in Israel on this day.

Rav Ovadia Yosef Allowed Pregnant Woman to Marry

"Rabbi Yosef dealt with halachic reality with great courage, in a matter that many feared to allow or even discuss."

Why Is the Left So Concerned with Haredi Dropouts?

There's something hollow, even vacuous, certainly vulgar, about people who manage their personal relationship with God through newspaper articles and television tidbits.

Swing State Report: NC, VA, Leaning Romney

You'll notice that I added North Carolina to the list of swing states. This is because the Romeny camp has declared it as such, probably not a minute too soon. With its 15 delegates, North Carolina broke McCain's heart in 2008 and went for the Democrats. It's good to know someone in the Romney camp is doing some thinking.

Blogger Puts Congressional Aide’s Get Refusal In Context

The case is, predictably, another ugly and scary and very personal one, which is why I stayed off it all this time. But as the pressure campaign is increasing and even Fox News is dumping on the husband (a Republican!), I went looking for some context. Now you can, too…

Odd News: Glenn Beck’s Nazi Collection Goes on Display in Utah

I've no idea whether to feel offended by the fact that Beck saw fit to spend money on a sample of Hitler's blood.
