Friday, February 12 2016
0 Comments  |  Add Comment

Granted gold has some practical applications: photography, conducting electricity and other things we remember as vaguely vital.  But that is not gold.  That is not gold's worth, that is not why people have been gaga over it for as long as we can remember.
  
It's not even ...

 
 

My Son the Doctor

"My Son the Doctor", and "Oh Doctor have I got a daughter for you",  were the two most eligible bachelors in the American Jewish community for over half a century, from the old neighborhood and on over in the move out to the suburbs.  Now we've heard so many stories of ...

 
 

The Bargain and the Jew

The story you are about to read is true.   Some names have been changed to protect the guilty.  Some names have been omitted to protect us from the grumpy.  The story first started thousands of years ago, when the world was young. . .

"My grandson made a seder in Kobe!"  "150 people!"  "In Kobe Japan!"  "My grandson!"   On a trip back to Brooklyn a number of years ago, I had met up with one of the elders of ...

 
 

Lechayim to Chutzpah!

Taking the Jews out of Egypt was the easy part for G-d; he's in the miracle business.  Taking the Egypt out of the Jews, now that's hard.  And Egypt was very into the Jews, the Pharaohs had enticing culture and entertainment (abomination in both sleazy and non-sleazy flavors); the Jews ...

 
 

Two Rabbis, One Shul

Sound like double trouble?   Over-employment?  The latest synagogue sitcom?  Probably; but Jewish history is never probable. 

We started that way.  Moses could not, would not, lead alone; Aaron had to be there.  Moses' ...

 
 

Where Were You?

"Where were you?"  Whether the question is from Mom, the boss, the wife, the husband or the grown children; they are not asking, they are accusing: Why weren't you where you were supposed to be?

Your answer is an excuse.  Unless you answer "I've been here the ...

 
 

Live With Death; Die With Life

If you want to know what a bureaucracy does, suggests PJ O'Rourke, watch it when it does nothing.  If you want to know what people think about life, watch them when death sticks out his calling card.  

Many act like it ain't happening.  They dress the dead in tuxes and ...

The Communists rose to power when Naphtali, Tolchik to his friends, was young. His father didn't like the smell of it all and told Tolchik to become a shochet: to master the intricate, exacting practice of kosher butchering - the training takes years and the pay is lousy. "Become a

When Mom and Dad have a really juicy tidbit to share that they don't want the kids to hear, they whisper it quietly.  If the kids come in the room they change the topic to something boring.  Kids pick up the trick.  When they are playing with the sensational and forbidden, they keep ...
