  • Jewish jokes and anti-dentites

    By Brad A. Greenberg

    The “Yada, Yada, Yada” episode of “Seinfeld” was, without a doubt, one of the best in the series’ nine-season history. It aired again Friday on TBS, and I thought it would be worth posting a short clip for your viewing pleasure. This portion actually isn’t my favorite moment of the...

  • Kaddish for Carlin

    By Rob Eshman

    June 26, 2008 | 11:31 am

    Everybody keeps asking me whether George Carlin was Jewish.

    "I heard he was related to the Karlin-Stoliner rebbe," a colleague said about the comedian who died this week at the age of 71.

    No, not unless the Karlin-Stoliner rebbe's family was really Irish and Catholic.

    "Are you going...

    Not Our Movie

    Contrary to Rob Eshman's analysis, protests against "Paradise Now" did not increase the film's potential audience ("Not Our Movie," March 10). It already commanded attention because of its Golden Globe Award and Oscar nomination and because it was made by a Palestinian...

  • Get a Life, George

    By Rabbi N. Daniel Korobkin

    March 9, 2006 | 7:00 pm

    I've watched few "Seinfeld" episodes, but one stands out in my mind. During a double date, George inadvertently offends Jerry's date, Jody. After George learns from Jerry that Jody doesn't like him, George falls all over himself for a second chance to make a good impression.


  • U.S. Studios Court Israeli Programmers

    By  Orit Arfa

    Danna Stern, head of acquisitions at YES, Israel's only television satellite company, was surprised to see that Mark Burnett, reality TV guru and producer of hit shows like "Survivor" and "The Apprentice," had only one framed press clipping in his office: a feature on him that had...

  • Larry David Died for Our Sins

    By Tom Teicholz

    December 22, 2005 | 7:00 pm

    Larry David, the producer-writer-star of "Curb Your Enthusiasm" has just finished airing the fifth season of his HBO program. Many people find him hilarious. Others find him annoying in the extreme. Both are right, of course, and David builds his humor out of this particular...

  • After George

    By Naomi Pfefferman

    October 19, 2000 | 8:00 pm

    Jason Alexander is having a "George" moment. "I don't fast on Yom Kippur, but then I do this," he says, looking heavenward and mock-cringing. "No offense!" he blurts.

    It's a scene right out of "Seinfeld," but then again, the 41-year-old actor shares more than a few neuroses with...

  • It’s Like…Not ‘Seinfeld’

    By Naomi Pfefferman

    April 15, 1999 | 8:00 pm

    Peter Mehlman, the former writer and co-executive producer of "Seinfeld," is sitting at a corner table at Shutters on the Beach, wearing mismatched sweats and a day's worth of stubble.

    He's sipping Pellegrino and gazing out the picture window at the palm trees and gray sea under a...

  • “He’s Hip!”

    By Michael Aushenker

    March 4, 1999 | 7:00 pm

    A few years ago, at the age of 24, Brooklyn-born Danny Hoch got the kind of phone call most struggling actors dream of. It was his agent, telling him that the people from "Seinfeld" had called: they wanted Hoch to get on a plane the next morning to tape a guest-starring role on the...

    American Jewswoke up in a different country today, now that "Seinfeld" signed off.

    We no longer live in a country whose favoriteentertainment is to turn on the tube and watch a New York Jew sitaround schmoozing dyspeptically with his friends. After nine seasonsand 170 episodes, Jerry...

    'Seinfeld' Borrows

    a Talmud

    By Ruth Stroud, Staff Writer

    The Jewish Community Library is used to catering to the literaryneeds of groups of school children, Yiddish scholars and day-schoolteachers. But seldom does it get a call for Talmudic texts to gracethe set of a sitcom. That...
