The “Forward 50,” a list of prominent Jewish Americans compiled by the New York Jewish weekly has featured a whopping three Jews from the film and television industries. If this is the best they could do for their 2008 culture and media set, I’d like to know what other areas are...
Judaism is the particular language through which Jews address humanity
Israel bombs Gaza militant base after rocket hits southern Israel
“Chocolate Bar” and genetic disease research
Learning Leadership from Rabbi Harold M. Schulweis, z’l
What Pakistan wants: its people or terrorists
A military miracle: Chanukah care for U.S. armed forces personnel
Behind every great ‘Serial’ podcast host, a Jewish studies professor
Israel bypassed in Oscars race

Contrary to what a few friends told me, “You Don’t Mess with the Zohan” was lame as lame can be. There were a few funny jokes, but those overwhelmed by a bad story, too much geriatric sex and a pretty cheesy plan for peace in the Middle East.
The above commercial, though, promoting the table trimmings of Zohan’s Palestinian nemesis was excellent, if only because of its closing line.
