To lose courage is worse than losing an army.   —   Jewish saying

[ J E W I S H  L I V I N G ]

On Sukkos, do we throw away the winning lottery ticket?
By Rabbi Hillel Goldberg

All the World is an Arab Stage, but Where is the Audience's Sense of Humor?
By Julia Gorin

When watching a sitcom, an audience of average intelligence or below easily recognizes the drama queen character, the martyr-manipulator who creates situations that will reinforce her status as the put-upon victim, in need of constant sympathy and attention. The antics she engages in to achieve her ends provide the main source of the show's humor-because no one buys into them and only the character has the endurance to take herself seriously. There's no chance that the audience will mistake her endless roster of grievances for authentic or for being anything other than self-created and self-perpetuated.

So I have often asked myself, "Could the people of average and above intelligence dominating our primary news airwaves just be stupid when it comes to the Middle East?


Your favorite website was recently profiled by the prestigious wire service, United Press International (UPI).

In friendship --- and gratitude,
