    In the past year, under my online video persona, VideoJew, I've explored much of the Los Angeles Jewish community and shared it with the YouTube-viewing nation.

    You've seen me eating at a kosher Subway, playing mah-jongg and conducting a blind matzah taste test. But after a...

    This is hot.  But it’s also extremely scary.  As much as I’m in favor of the idea of self-defense, there’s something very disturbing about a class comprised solely of women (think Stepford Wives 2).  While every woman should learn self defense, do they all have to learn it...

  • The Daily Show ripped me off!

    By Jay Firestone

    August 6, 2008 | 8:07 pm

    I hate to start my blog off like this, but its necessary.  The Daily Show with Jon Stewart totally ripped me off. As many of the VideoJew watchers know, I’m a huge fan of the elderly Jewish scene.  I’ve learned Mah Jongg and even attended the 94th Annual Hadassah convention (see...

  • The Hadassah convention - VideoJew style

    By Jay Firestone

    July 17, 2008 | 4:42 pm

    The 94th annual Hadassah convention recently traveled to Los Angeles and JewishJournal.com VideoJew Jay Firestone was all over it, like jelly on gefilte fish.

    To get a feel for the convention, VideoJew submerged himself in many of the activities.  On his journey, he made new friends and even visited with some old friends.  But does he find his ‘eshet chayil?’ 

    Watch and find out.  Your rabbi would want you to.

    May 22, 2008 | 12:18 pm

    For the record, I didn't grow a beard for this video. I did it for God.

    But in keeping the Omer tradition, I realized this was a tremendous opportunity to educate the world about the promises and immense potential of a truly rewarding Lag B'Omer.

    But before I really develop that...

    Can you taste the difference between two different matzahs? 

    For some, it may be quite a feat to positively identify one matzah from another.  But I know that each matzah is unique in texture, flavor, scent and shape.

    Here are a few tips to follow, in...

  • VideoJew explores the Purim hangover…at Chabad Purim party

    By Jay Firestone

    March 27, 2008 | 12:33 pm

    Purim may be over, but the holiday is most likely still in our systems.  For me, the Purim hangover is never easy.  My body aches thanks to several consecutive sets of hora dancing.  My stomach aches from an overdose of flour, eggs and raspberry preservatives.  But most of all my...

  • Newest mah-jongg players ‘crak’ stereotypes.  Bam!

    By Jay Firestone

    December 20, 2007 | 7:00 pm

    Elaine Sandberg fits the mold of what you would expect to encounter when you consider someone who plays American mah-jongg. She's Jewish and just past retirement age.

    But the 70-something L.A. mah-jongg instructor, who has taught the game for Holland American Cruise Lines and...

  • Young Jewish male takes ‘crak’ at mah-jongg

    By Jay Firestone

    December 20, 2007 | 12:26 pm

    Sure, mah-jongg is a game classically known for its appeal to old Jewish women, but so is bingo and scrabble.  And I love those games, so why not mah-jongg? 

    But a 23-year-old nudnik playing mah-jongg?  I know, that’s almost as crazy of as an 83-year-old yenta playing Donkey Kong....

  • Eight days of Chanukah candle lighting - Day 8: The great donut finale

    By Jay Firestone

    December 11, 2007 | 9:25 am

    Its been a long week, but now I can finally say that my life is complete, thanks to the Chabad of West Hills, the Chabad of Woodland Hills and the New JCC at Milken…and also about 300 donuts.


    Thanks for watching our Chanukah Special.  Check out JewishJournal.com for more great videos and inspiring articles. 

    HAPPY CHANUKAH!

  • Eight days of Chanukah candle lighting - Day 7: Taglit Birthright party

    By Jay Firestone

    December 10, 2007 | 10:07 am

    Throughout this week, I’ve made latkes (or at least attempted to), gone to school musicals and even mastered the art of the dreidel.  Now, for the 7th day, its time to party, Chanukah style.  Thanks to the help of Taglit Birthright Israel, Jdub Records (in addition to the support of the Progressive Jewish Alliance), we can light candles with class, drinks and girls.

  • VideoJew’s Eight days of Chanukah candle lighting - Day 5: Adam, the dreidel wiz

    By Jay Firestone

    December 8, 2007 | 11:23 am

    What’s Chanukah without a little dreidel? Better than mario kart or guitar hero, dreidel is not only fun, but its a game about equality…because it requires absolutely no skill at all - everyone’s on the same level.  I learned, however that the classic game can be pretty boring.  That’s why I sat down with Jewish Joural Senior Editor Adam Wills, a dreidel expert.  Together we learned basic play along with a new game…upside-down dreidel. 

    After the game, as always come light the Chanukah candles with us.
