    Very very nice the iniciative gays israelis

  • Neat! I bet the Black Hats are foaming some much their beards have gone white from the spit and spite.

    One nice about Pride in the Holy Land the leaders of the fundy factions of the Jewish, Christian and Muslim faiths can all agree that the only thing they hate more than each other are fags. So in that way gays bring peace to the Middle East.

    • So basically you’re imposing hatred on presumed prejudice? How do you function through so many layers of hypocritical psyche?!?

      • Ha! Ha! Yes! I totally made it up!

        In a rare alliance, senior religious leaders of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam in the Holy Land joined forces Wednesday to thwart a major international gay parade scheduled to take place in Jerusalem this summer, urging the government to ban the event which they said could provoke a violent reaction from the faithful.

        Edward H you should try harder to understand stuff you talk about.

        • Ah but salvage, religious leaders have always spoken out against homosexuality. In many ways this is just a great example of the animosity that exists between the religious and secular populations of Israel. However, what concerns me more is how quickly you resort to racist dialogue in your comments.

          • *orthodox religious leaders

          • Look at you! You say “presumed prejudice” and I show you it’s not presumed but a fact and then you go “Of course it is!” as if you never went and called me “hypocritical” and implied I was a liar for suggesting such a thing!

            I assume that’s how you convince yourself that you’re never wrong about anything, just ignore facts.

            Even if they’re ON YOUR OWN SCREEN INCHES AWAY FROM YOUR EYES!

            That’s a special sort of delusion that is.

            And Ha! Ha! Yes! I’m the racist! I won’t ask you how you came to that astonishing conclusion as you clearly have trouble translating the sensory input of the world around you due to some sort of physical and/or mental malformation.

    Forthcoming Major Action Movies Inspired by Jewish Comic Artist Jack Kirby

    JNS.org – With the recent Oscars in the rearview mirror, Hollywood’s attention now shifts to the rest of this year’s big-screen lineup. Two of the major action films coming up in 2015—Avengers: Age of Ultron, which hits theaters in May, and the third film in the Fantastic Four series, slated for an August release—have Jewish roots that the average moviegoer might be unaware of. As it turns out, it took a tough Jewish kid from New York City’s Lower East [...]

    When Torah Teaches Life and Life Teaches Torah (REVIEW)

    JNS.org – Rabbi Gordon Tucker spent the first 20 years of his career teaching at the Conservative movement’s Jewish Theological Seminary (JTS) and the next 20 years as the rabbi of Temple Israel Center in White Plains, N.Y. I confess that when I heard about the order of those events, I thought that Tucker’s move from academia to the pulpit was strange. Firstly, I could not imagine anyone filling the place of my friend, Arnold Turetsky, who was such a talented [...]

    Oscars 2015: Reflecting on Love at First Sight

    JNS.org – I’m in love, and have been for a long time. It’s a relationship filled with laughter, tears, intrigue, and surprise. It was love at first sight, back when I was a little girl—with an extra-terrestrial that longed to go home. From then on, that love has never wavered, and isn’t reserved for one, but for oh so many—Ferris Bueller, Annie Hall, Tootsie, Harry and Sally, Marty McFly, Atticus Finch, Danny Zuko, Yentl, that little dog Toto, Mrs. Doubtfire, [...]

    Examining America’s First Foray into the Middle East (REVIEW)

    At the turn of the 21st century through today, American involvement in Middle Eastern politics runs through the Central Intelligence Agency. In America’s Great Game: The CIA’s Secret Arabists and the Shaping of the Modern Middle East, historian Hugh Wilford shows this has always been the case. Wilford methodically traces the lives and work of the agency’s three most prominent officers in the Middle East: Kermit “Kim” Roosevelt was the grandson of president Theodore Roosevelt, and the first head of [...]

    Anyone who spent time in the Jewish Catskills hotels – especially those like me, who returned for decades – must see the new documentary,”Welcome to Kutsher’s: The Last Catskills Resort.” Not only will the film transport you back to the glory days of your youth and thousands of memories, but it will also make you long for a world that is now lost forever. I returned to Kutsher’s one last time in the summer of 2009, but by then, the [...]

    Riding the Wave of Change in Part-Time Jewish Education

    JNS.org – Amid the numerous studies and analyses regarding Jewish American life, a simple fact remains: part-time Jewish education is the most popular vehicle for Jewish education in North America. Whenever and wherever parents choose Jewish education for their children, we have a communal responsibility to devote the necessary time and resources to deliver dynamic, effective learning experiences. The only way we can do this is by creating space for conversations and knowledge-sharing around innovative new education models. That also [...]
