Jews and Guns

I am republishing this entry, with some edits, because after the Parkland atrocity—a massive failure of local and federal government and law enforcement at every level—the antigun hysteria of the left, with their photogenic high school commissars in the vanguard, presents a danger to the Second Amendment. Make no mistake about it; the left plans to […]

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 […]

Iran Blames Drug Addiction On Talmud

The chattering classes keep telling us that the Iranian regime is not anti-Semitic, only anti-Zionist. Of course anti-Zionism is Jew-hatred decked out in a more fashionable outfit. And this latest assault on Judaism and the Talmud, the Oral Law, is just another form of the blood libel. The Iranians are so consumed by Jew-hatred, and […]

Friday Fashion: Real Men Wear Pink

The Talmud (Shabbat 113a) tells us that Rabbi Yochanan called his clothing, “The things that honor me.” Seraphic Secret believes that what we wear tells the world who we are and how we wish to be treated. If you dress like a slob and then get annoyed when people treat you like a slob, well, […]
