    No question about it—Bernie Sanders was born a Jew. So what? .... To a serious, practicing Jew, the fact that Bernie Sanders makes use of his Jewish birthright, is somewhat disturbing. Senator Sanders has done almost nothing Jewish throughout his entire life. His disdain for Israel, his recent support for Linda Sarsour, Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar, his hatred of Prime Minister Netanyahu, makes him much more of a “Sonay Yisrael—an Israel hater,” than a supporter of the Jewish state. So why is it that a Jew, who has dropped virtually everything Jewish from his life, from keeping Kosher to...

    Current crisis faced by Israel result of crumbling Jewish identity Many years ago, residents of Mishmar HaEmek held a meeting to discuss why the sons who left the kibbutz were not returning. The elderly Yaakov Hazan rejected the argument that the community's physical state needed improvement and summed his views with one sentence: "We failed in the effort to establish a secular Jewish society." I recall Hazan when Israelis start asking what happened to us and how did we reach a situation where even minor war objectives are not achieved. The leadership failure by the statesmen who directed the army...

    If you can't say something nice, say it in Yiddish. If it tastes good, it's probably not kosher. No one leaves a Jewish wedding hungry; but then again, no one leaves with a hangover. After the sixth day, G~d created Loehmann's. Why spoil a good meal with a big tip? Twenty percent off is a bargain; fifty percent off is a mitzvah. Israel is the land of milk and honey; Florida is the land of milk of magnesia. The High Holidays have absolutely nothing to do with marijuana. Always whisper the names of diseases. If you don't eat, it will...
