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.

"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 ...

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.

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 something ...

Prisons are hopeless places.  With colored TVs, weight piles and Congressional Fair Acts and such, prisons are hopeless places.  Go back in time, then they were cellars, one small, barred window.  Rats.  Other prisoners: who fit in there fine.  Who belonged ...

Antique sells. Even faux antique sells. "Antiqued" furniture is scuffed and dinged at the end of the assembly line. 
Brand-new pewter pitchers are being coated with green stuff called patina. Multi-million dollar homes are built to "have character". If you have no antique, ...

My son the doctor had a son: 
he is now a neurosurgeon. 
His son is a forest-ranger in Yosemite: 
the girl he is not yet married to is not Jewish. 
My son the lawyer had a daughter: 
she is a senior analyst with Morgan Stanley:

My father was raised in the Old Country, in a place called Nujoisy, in the town of Elizabeth. His parents had come there from Israel, where he was born. They had come to Israel from Russia shortly before his birth: they had left Russia after my grandfather's father was murdered in a pogrom. My ...
