Friday Photos: Democrat Privilege

Tweet Pop quiz: Why isn’t the Justice Department investigating the Clinton money laundering operation? Any other so-called charity would be under multiple federal and state indictments. Hillary Clinton had her own private server when she was Secretary of State. This is indefensible. She destroyed 30,000 emails? Does anyone believe that all these emails were about […]

Friday Photos: In Every Generation

Tweet On Passover, Jews around the world recite a passage from the Haggadah that strikes a note both poignant and defiant. In every generation they [our enemies] rise up against us to destroy us, but the Holy One Blessed Be He saves us from their hands. But Judaism does not place faith in faith alone. […]

Update from France: Four Hostages Killed — A Call For the Reformation of Islam

Tweet Reports indicate that French SWAT teams have stormed the kosher market. Four hostages are dead. Baruch Dayan Emet. Why did the IslamoNazis take hostages in a kosher market? Were their cartoonists hanging out in the aisles on erev Shabbat? Of course not. The IslamoNazis were there to kill Jews. Because that’s what IslamoNazis do; […]

Friday Photos: Because the World Really is Burning

Tweet Is it our imagination or is the global order falling into systemic disorder? North Korea, a giant gulag, has managed to intimidate the entire Hollywood system. Meanwhile, the Obama regime, allegedly sworn to defend and protect America from all threats foreign and domestic, seems far more interested in cozying up to the ruthless tyrants […]

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 […]

Friday Photos: Just Because the World is Burning…

Tweet All across the country protests, riots, and race-baiters doing what they do in order to disrupt civil society. We don’t know about you, but here at Seraphic Secret we feel the need for some relief from the endless cycle of horrible, terrible, very bad news. We yearn for beauty, for images that, in one […]

John Wayne Stumbles Into Overtime

Tweet Scott Eyman’s superb biography of John Wayne presents a multi-dimensional portrait of a good and decent man who went out of his way to help others. But out of intrinsic modesty, Wayne never made his kindness and charity a public calling card. Before becoming a superstar in Stagecoach (1939), Wayne was working like a […]

Friday Photos: How I Spent My Summer Vacation

Tweet Summer vacation. Seraphic Secret spent time in Yosemite and not long afterwards, Offspring #2 and family arrived in Los Angeles for a two-week vacation. Activities included a wedding at the Terranea Resort, day trips to museums, playgrounds, and swimming in Casa Avrech’s cement pond. Vacation time is almost over, but our memories will last […]

Friday Photo: Maayan Ariel, American Girl

Tweet Maayan Ariel and I were playing together in the courtyard when she asked me about the flag flying outside our home. “It means we’re proud of our country, proud to be Americans.” “I’m proud too,” she said with solid conviction. “A proud American girl.” “Take a picture, Saba.” (Hebrew: grandfather) “Okaaay!” Karen and I […]

Friday Photos

Tweet Hypothetical question: Your house is on fire. Everyone is safe. You can run in and rescue one item. What will it be? The answer, overwhelmingly, is family photos. We are the sum of our memories. Photos help us capture time and space, preserve moments that otherwise would be lost. I seek the ordinary, the […]

Friday Fashion: The Exodus Edition

Tweet On Passover the Jewish people are instructed to envision that they are experiencing the Exodus from Egypt. During the Passover seder (meal) we reenact—through sacred memory animated by ritual—the passage from bondage to slavery. The Torah tells us that the Jews left Egypt with the spoils of their oppressors—compensation for 400 years of cruelty. […]

Tweet If you’re as deeply involved in politics as is Seraphic Secret, if you’re a lover of Zion, as is Seraphic Secret, if you’re terrified of another four years of Obama, as is Seraphic Secret, well, you tend to walk around with a black cloud hovering over your head. But compiling a Ten Best List, […]
