Friday Photos: Announcing a New Jewish Holiday Edition

Tweet Jewish humor is filled with self-deprecating observations. We poke fun at our peculiar foibles, and frequently address our greatest anxieties — intermarriage, Jew-hatred, weight-gain — with a take-no-prisoners attitude. If you want to know how Jews are really feeling about something or someone, pay attention to the jokes Jews tell each other. A few […]

Magda Goebbels: Downfall Beyond Imagination

Tweet Over the past few years, YouTube viewers are regularly entertained by a short portion of the German movie Downfall (’04). Using a single clip from the film, these ubiquitous and frequently clever shorts show Hitler ranting at his generals as Russian troops encircle Berlin and seek out the bunker. The thousand year Reich has lasted […]

Purim: The Non-Progressive Jewish Holiday

Tweet Today is the holiday of Purim. And it is no accident that Benjamin Netanyahu referenced this Jewish holiday when delivering his powerful and historic address to the U.S. Senate the other day. It’s an old ( 5th century B.C.E.) but agnonizingly familiar story: A Jew-hater named Haman hatches a plan to annihilate the Jewish […]

Rabbi Chaplain Abraham Avrech, First Yahrzeit

Tweet My father, Rabbi Chaplain Abraham Avrech passed away on March 15, 2014, which in the Jewish calendar translates into the 13th of Adar. Thus, this is the first Yahrzeit, memorial, without my father’s physical presence in this world. My father was 94 years old. He is gone, but he is certainly not forgotten. During […]

Book Review: Bina Lobell’s Super Secret Diary

Tweet One of the most important strategies for a writer is to set the tone for his work as quickly and as accurately as possible. As a screenwriter, I make it a rule to set the tone for my script in the very first scene. When I write a novel or a memoir, I make […]

The Movie Selma Judenrein

Tweet Movies are the most powerful tools of propaganda the world has ever known. They have the ability to mold public opinion, in ways both overt and covert, on every topic from fashion to war. Think about it. America has never won a modern war without Hollywood’s support. And when Hollywood turns against a war, […]

It’s Not Islam — It’s Shape Shifting Jews!

Tweet Yesterday, we pointed out that that Arab Muslim world is a universe of dangerous conspiracy theories — most of which accuse the Jews/Israel of, well, everything, including IslamoNazi depredations. At the very same time we have Barack Hussein Obama’s tortured explanations as to why his administration refuses to label Islamic terrorism as Islamic terrorism. […]

Friday Photos: Just Because the World is Still Burning…

Tweet It’s been another terrible, horrible very bad week with the release of a Democrat, ahem, study, that seeks to persecute President George W. Bush and the CIA for their efforts to protect America against genocidal IslamoNazis. The Democrat Senate report is a lynching, just as the Ferguson riots are lynch mobs, and just as […]

British Star Jessie Matthews Does Weddings and Bar Mitzvahs

Tweet Jessie Matthews (1907-1981) was Britain’s first and greatest international movie star. Known as the Dancing Divinity, Matthew’s tragic and scandal-ridden life was more akin to hell on earth. Born above a butcher shop in London’s Soho district, the seventh of eleven children, George, Jessie’s father was illiterate, a harsh and distant drunk. In contrast, […]

Veteran’s Day, 2014: My Favorite Veteran, Rabbi Abraham Avrech z’l

Tweet My father, Rabbi Chaplain Abraham Avrech passed away on March 15, 2014. This is the first Veteran’s Day without my father’s physical presence in this world. He is gone, but like all veteran’s certainly not forgotten. Take a moment to ponder the enormous sacrifices made by our nation’s heroes and their families. Millions and […]

G’mar chatima tovah 5775 – גמר חתימה טובה

Tweet Tonight begins Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement. We will fast for 25 hours. Jews, all over the world, attend day-long prayer services, composed of spiritual and emotional prayers, poetry and songs. Karen and I pray that Hashem will inscribe all our friends and relatives in the Book of Life.

John Wayne Casts a Giant Shadow

Tweet John Wayne’s commitment to Conservative values cemented his support of Israel. Indeed, there was a time when even Hollywood liberals supported Israel publicly, and through generous charitable contributions.  Tragically, classic liberalism is dead, replaced by a postmodern Democrat party—progressivism—that is radically left and infused with the classic Jew-hatred of Marxist-Lenninism. In Scott Eyman’s compulsively […]

T’sha B’Av During Operation Protective Edge

Tweet Five misfortunes befell our fathers … on the ninth of Av. …On the ninth of Av it was decreed that our fathers should not enter the [Promised] Land, the Temple was destroyed the first and second time, Bethar was captured and the city [Jerusalem] was ploughed up. — Mishnah Ta’anit 4:6

Hamas Dead Baby Strategy

Tweet The Christian community in Mosul have been given the choice to pay an exorbitant tax, convert to Islam — or die. In response, thousands of Christians are fleeing Mosul with little more than the clothes on their backs. Their valuables are being systematically looted by the IslamoNazis, who are establishing a caliphate in lands that […]

From Somalia to Brandeis, The Road of Liberal Fascism

Tweet And if your son asks you in the future, saying, What are the testimonies, and the statutes, and the judgments, that the L-RD our G-d commanded you? You will say to your son, We were slaves to Pharaoh in Egypt; and the L-RD brought us out of Egypt with a mighty hand. The L-RD […]

Meet the Jewish-American Fascists of Brandeis

Tweet Liberty’s Spirit has written an Open Letter to the Jewish-America Community: What Is Wrong With You? This letter is wrenchingly on-target. In it, she decries the suicidal political correctness that animates the self-righteous Democrats who also happen to have been born Jewish. No better example of this PC insanity can be found but at […]

A Duck Dynasty Purim!

Tweet The 2014 Purim celebration begins on Saturday night March 15 and continues through the 16th. On the holiday of Purim, Jews listen to a reading of Megillat Esther, send gifts of food to friends and neighbors, donate to the poor, attend a festive meal where we make a l’chaim—“Genocide averted, let’s eat!”—and frequently wear […]

Obama’s Perversion of Religious Liberty and Persecution of Religious People

Tweet Freedom of religion. We take it for granted. This past Friday evening, Karen lit candles, ushering in Shabbat.. Openly wearing my kippah,, I walked to shul and prayed with scores of friends and neighbors. After prayers, Karen and I sat down to a joyous dinner where we sang Shabbat songs and expressed gratitude to G-d […]

Judah Maccabee Wants You to Man-Up

Tweet Before Judah the Maccabee and his pitifully small band of 3,000 men went to battle against the great armies of the Selecuid empire, Judah assembeled his troops and gave them a rousing speech. This excerpt, from the Book of Maccabees, gives you an idea of the noble and pious rhetoric Judah used to inspire his […]

Confessions of a Shomer Shabbos Hollywood Screenwriter

Tweet Act I: Exposition—In Which the Main Characters and Primary Drama Are Introduced It’s Shabbat morning. I’m in synagogue, praying, where an undertone of chatter is definitely not the norm. For me, a frum-from-birth screenwriter, this synagogue, where my wife and I have been members since we moved to Los Angeles from Brooklyn, is my […]
