Sir Nicholas Winton organized the rescue of about 669 Jewish Czechoslovakian children destined for the Nazi death camps and sent them to England. He never spoke about it. When his wife found his scrapbook, she found the names of all the children. In 1988, she gathered them all together to surprise her husband. 

We dare you not to cry.

    Jews may not be super well-represented in pro sports, but at least Billy Crystal is able to make a cameo in this ad--albeit a very brief one. Blink, and you'll miss it.

  • Watch: Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder goes on anti-Israel rant at concert

    The rant begins at 4:10 in the video (if you want to skip the song) and while he never outright says "Israel," it's very clear that that's who he is talking about.

    Warning, there are many expletives in the video.

  • Israeli parents abuzz over new diaper commercial

    May 30, 2014 | 1:49 pm

    Israeli parents  are abuzz over a new commericial for 'denim' diapers. Some parents think it's cute, while others say the diaper commercial is guilty of sexualizing children. Personally, it just looks like kids in diapers to us (albeit kids that might be too old for diapers).
