    As Purim approaches, we encounter a Talmudic conundrum:

    Chanukah has come and gone, and Jewish parents everywhere can breathe a sigh of relief. It’s comforting to know that 5772/2011 will likely be the last year that we have to tell our kids the story of the Maccabees without the help of Mel Gibson. Last September, in an announcement...

    Designer John Galliano finally had his day in court.  By “day”, of course I mean a whopping 6 minutes.  Galliano lost his job at Dior after he was caught on tape in a drunken stupor, bashing Jews, and today he was found guilty of “public insults toward persons on the basis of...

    Part one of the NYC reunion was interesting.  By interesting of course I mean a lot of shouting and behaving badly.  On a regular week it is embarrassing to admit that I watch this show, but today is rougher than usual.  These chicks are crazy.  By “these” of course I mean Ramona...

    Obviously, the talmudic rabbis never heard of "Just say no."

    But the commandment to drink till we're drunk is problematic, especially in a holiday...
