Purim: The Deeply Anti-Progressive Jewish Holiday

Today is the holiday of Purim. It is no accident that in 2015, Benjamin Netanyahu referenced Purim when delivering his powerful address to the U.S. Senate in an unsuccessful bid to curb Obama’s legitimization of a nuclear Iran. Purim is an old ( 5th century B.C.E.) but painfully familiar story: A Jew-hater named Haman hatches […]

Hidden Hollywood: Seven Obscure Jewish Films

What’s a Jewish film? My definition is quite simple. It is a film that deals with Jewish subject matter. Thus, Woody Allen does not make Jewish films. In truth, Hollywood movies that do deal with Judaism are quite rare. Take a look at the subject headings in Netflix. There is no category for Jewish films. […]

Friday Photos: True Hollywood Confessions

No, you have not fallen into a time warp. It is Wednesday. So: why Friday Photos today? The celebration of Succos starts tonight and continues into Shabbat. And because Orthodox Jews (that’s us) do not use electronics during these holidays you get Friday Photos early. We hope you enjoy this edition.

Passover 2017, The Problem of Freedom

Tonight begins the holiday of Passover in which Jews celebrate deliverance from Egyptian bondage. In order to escape the shackles of slavery, the vast machinery of the mighty Egyptian state had to be crushed. Those who wielded absolute power were reduced to nothingness. G-d did this not only to diminish the physical power of a […]

The Westworld Haggadah

by Jake Novak There’s a key moment in the Seder when the Haggadah informs us that all Jews must think of themselves as if they personally came out of bondage in Egypt. Talk about a tall order. Thank goodness, most of us live decidedly comfortable middle or upper middle class lives. Getting our heads and […]

Antiochus Obama

Ever since Obama was elected we have said that he is a classic leftist Jew-hater. Obama spent 20 years as a faithful member of Jeremiah Wright’s church because Wright, a proud and vocal Jew-hater, articulated everything Obama felt: hatred of America, hatred of Jews. Obama’s envoy in the UN, Samantha Power, has a history of […]

Jews and Guns

Before our son Ariel Chaim ZT”L passed away in 2003 at the age of twenty-two, he and I spent a good deal of time discussing the Second Amendment, the Right to Keep and Bear Arms. Ariel was amazed that so many American Jews–overwhelmingly liberal and secular–aligned themselves with the advocates of gun control, in reality a movement […]
