Shabbat Shalom! Hey!
Crike! (been watching too many Australian TV shows) Jew news can’t get much more interesting than this! So, dont wait, and settle yourselves into a reading groove and enjoy the following:
– The mystery Torah: How did a Torah from Berdichev Russia end up in a Goodwill store in Williamsburg, VA? Inquiring minds want to know….
– Antisemitism on the right on the rise: like we didn’t know?- Are luxury mikvahs missing the point? who knew?
– Ginger Jews: they go way back!
This week, learn about:
– Sabra’s Hummus and why the Israeli company wants you to eat more (Sabra is named for a cactus plant and meant to be a metaphor for Israelis: “prickly on the outside, soft on the inside”)
– Learn more about impeachment witness Alexander Vindman (DYK, he and his brother were featured in Ken Burns documentary on immigrants?)
– Interesting review of “Motherless Brooklyn” emphasizing similarities of Baldwin’s character to Robert Moses- Superman is Jewish!- And much more!
Enjoy, and have a great weekend!
