Shabbat shalom on this new year’s day to one and all!

The Jew News Review – December 25, 2021 – Traditions, Traditions!

Shabbat shalom everyone! Happy birthday to the world’s greatest mumsy, and happy holidays to one and all.  This morning, in the rare stillness of our Vermont condo, I watched live coverage of the James Webb telescope launch into deep space. Pretty amazing human achievement! This Hubble upgrade will enable scientists to see and hear thingsContinue reading “The Jew News Review – December 25, 2021 – Traditions, Traditions!”

The Jew News Review – December 18, 2021 – “Sense and Non-Sensibilities”

Shabbat shalom JNR community! What a week! We are heading to the slopes of Vermont tomorrow for a much needed respite from the hectic day-to-day drudgery of retired life.

Shabbat shalom! And Happy Thanksgiving weekend!  Chanukah is just around the corner, and since our family is holding our pirate themed Chanukah party today (Chanukah on the Chai Seas), and since our editorial staff is slightly under the weather and still recovering from a massive food coma, yours truly is taking the day off!

The Jew News Review – November 20, 2021 – 400 years of bullshit, one helluva stupid law, and a missing menorah

Shabbat shalom one and all!  It’s Thanksgiving week, historically one of my favorite holidays, since it is simply a weekend of being thankful by eating gobs of good food, watching the Detroit Lions lose, and spending time with family. A pretty good recipe for an enjoyable weekend. And, did you know that this year marksContinue reading “The Jew News Review – November 20, 2021 – 400 years of bullshit, one helluva stupid law, and a missing menorah”

Shabbat shalom JNR peeps!  A fall chill is in the Sharon air but I remain toasty in the JNR office, spinning some Steve Goodman on the turntable.
