What the Bleep?! This week's hot Jewish news
A lot of crazy #&^$ happens in the Jewish world each week. Don’t miss these stories on: Female Torah scribes make history; Palestinian kippot-makers; an Israeli pledge of allegiance, old Jewish black men and more.
Palestinian women are making our kippot. Can you handle that?
In case you want to be more like Amy Winehouse (and does anybody really?), the first step is changing your clothes to dress “like an old Jewish black man.” Huh?
New questions now that Israel requires Jews becoming citizens to pledge “allegiance.” Really? This is an issue? If American Jews can pledge to the U.S.A., they better be able to pledge to their new homeland. Sounds like a lot of hype over nothing to me. Thoughts?
Wow. The first Torah created by female only scribes was read from for the first time today. History in the making folks. Read about it.
Can’t wait until the new Heidi’s restaurant opens in Minneapolis? Use MOT Stewart Woodman’s new cookbook to help you cook like Heidi’s at home. Or try, at least. And probably fail.
And a fun, steamy little read about an often under-appreciated part of Jewish life – the Mikvah – by @Ninbadzin from Minneapolis. Don’t miss it.
