3 Reasons There Are So Many Jews In Comedy Six years ago, boyish Cracked editor Jack O'Brien suggested I write about why there are so many Jews in comedy. Granted, we were discussing an article I had pitched about American Jews, but I have to admit the request struck me as a little odd -- not just because here at Cracked I'm the lone Jew amid an endless sea of dirty Irish bastards -- but because today we tend not to point these things out. Just like we don't mention how so many Greeks own diners or how often the brides I order through the mail turn out to be Ukrainian. Still, Jack was hardly the first to make the association. The relationship between Jews and comedy has been noted frequently by scholars, serious talk-show hosts, and pudgy AEπ guys.
How Saudi Arabia Discriminates Against Jews - History of Saudi Arabian-US Discrimination Against Jews In 2004, U.S. Rep, Anthony Weiner, a New York Democrat, called on President Bush to deny travel visas to Saudi Arabians until the Saudi government explained what appeared to be a policy of banning Jews from traveling to the Kingdom. The Saudi government’s official tourism web site in 2004 listed four groups of people who would be denied visas regardless: Israelis and anyone with a passport “that has an Israeli arrival/departure stamp.” Those who don’t abide by Saudi traditions, and those under the influence of alcohol.

Anti-Semitism Is Salonfähig Again By Leon de Winter It's a fascinating phenomenon: Why do people and organizations that present themselves as progressive team up with reactionary Muslims?

Most people have heard something or other about Kabbalah. But it is highly unlikely that what is going around in the general marketplace posing as Kabbalah is anywhere close to the real thing. What most people have been exposed to is a smorgasbord of pop psychology and self-help that pretends to have some connection to Jewish mysticism, but it rarely, if ever, does. It is easy to see how people are fooled. In most disciplines, you expect to know and understand something after studying it. Kabbala #1: What Is Kabbala?
Jews say the Shema and V’ahavta twice a day. The Shema, which actually includes theV’ahavta, represents the cornerstone of Jewish belief. In the Jewish renewal world, and elsewhere, I’ve seen an interest in providing new translations for this prayer. The Reform Movement recently published a new prayer book, which provides a very nice translation of the V’ahvta, which I like very much. During Rosh Hashanah services at my renewal community, Chadeish Yameinu, in Santa Cruz, however, I was struck by the translation by Rabbi Zalman Schacter-Shalomi included in our prayer book, and I’d like to share it here. Hear O Yisrael, Yah who is, is our God, Yah who is, is One.Through time and space Your glory shines Majestic one.Love Yah, who is your God,in what your heart is in, in what you aspire to,in what you have made your own.May these values which I connect with your lifebe implanted in your feelings.
