Hidden Hollywood: Seven Obscure Jewish Films

Tweet 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 […]

Veteran’s Day, 2017: My Favorite Veteran, Rabbi Chaplain Abraham Avrech z’l

Tweet My father, Rabbi Chaplain Abraham Avrech passed away on March 15, 2014. This is the fourth 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.

Friday Photos: True Hollywood Confessions

Tweet 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.

Evil on the Vegas Strip

Tweet And so here we are. Again. The Las Vegas massacre is not, as the media habitually labels such incidents, a tragedy. This is an atrocity.
