Orthodox Jewish Newspaper Cuts Andrea Merkel Out Of Paris March Because She’s Female

As a Jew myself, albeit part of the Reform movement, I understand that Orthodox Jews separate men from women in temple.

A small Jewish ultra-Orthodox newspaper in Israel is making waves internationally for removing German Chancellor […]

Polio delayed the event when he was 13, but it’s never too late. The poliomyelitis infection hospitalized Norman Alpert for weeks in 1939 while growing up in the Lower East Side. He was unable to get out of bed for the Jewish ceremony, according to the Asbury Park Press. The Spring Lake Heights resident will […]

Bill Donohue of the Catholic League says liberals defend Islam because they have two common enemies: the United States and Jews. Liberals are afraid to criticize Muslims, but that is not the only reason they support the Islamic faith, Donahue claimed. “I think there is also a sense here, a lot of these people really […]

Pre-Tweeting left in the hands of an incompetent staffer is not good. Twitter users had a good laugh Friday afternoon when RNC chair Reince Priebus sent out this gloriously unfinished message: The tweet was quickly deleted, for obvious reasons. This was cause for great fun among the political class. [Link to Funny Joke about Reince […]
