This is an 1844 print featuring Moses and the Ten Commandments. I am always impressed by artists who can draw like this. Happy Wordless Wednesday! Submitted for Wordless Wednesday.
See Jane schlep. . . Schlep, Jane. Schlep. Do you remember Dick and Jane? This version with a Yiddish twist is hilarious (and made for adults). I learned to read with the original. It was a long time ago, but I still remember: See Dick. . .See Dick Run . . .Run Dick Run Really, […]
When you saw the words “Kosher pork” did you make that face? You know the one – complete confusion, skepticism and doubt. That was my reaction when my daughter told me she had heard that Kosher pork is available in Israel. I shook my head and told her she was obviously mistaken. So I Googled […]

An elderly Jewish man in Miami calls his son in New York and says, “I hate to ruin your day, but I have to tell you that your mother and I are divorcing; forty-five years of misery is enough.” “Pop, what are you talking about?” the son screams. “We can’t stand the sight of each […]
