  • Struck by Venice lightning

    July 28, 2014 | 6:16 pm

    On Sunday afternoon, I was knee-deep in the ocean, right next to the Venice Fishing Pier, when the deadly lightning bolt hit the water. This rare bit of weather would kill at least one person and injure 13 others, making national news. But I didn’t know it right then.

    I had gone...

  • 700 menorahs lit simultaneously

    December 22, 2011 | 10:38 am

    Some 700 people lit Chanukah menorahs simultaneously.

    The guests at the Merrick Jewish Centre lit the menorahs on the second night of Chanukah in order to break the world record for the most menorahs lit at the same time.

    A Chanukah video collaboration and I wasn’t involved?  Shame on me. 

    If I had been on my game, I would’ve submitted a dynamite candle lighting clip (maybe even with real dynamite).  I’d bring all the VideoJew friends together (Jelvis, Gino, Aaron Kemp, the guys from the kosher Subway, mah-jongg lady Elaine Sandberg)...the list could go on forever.  But I suppose the VideoJew holiday special will have to wait until next year.

    Christian children wearing their Sunday best for last week's Easter services understandably could forget, amidst their Easter egg hunts, that the Last Supper of Jesus was a Passover seder.

    But in this season of Easter and Passover, connections between the holidays has inspired...
