Former ‘That 70s Show” co-stars Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis were spotted wandering the streets of Rome recently. The couple started dating earlier in the year, and according to the Daily Mail Kutcher’s piety–he was introduced to Kabbalah by his ex-wife, Demi Moore– isn’t yet rubbing off on Kunis, who was raised Jewish.

“Sources previously revealed that the couple were seen arriving at the Kabbalah Centre holding hands on September 18, sparking rumours that Mila was converting to its school of thought,” states the Daily Mail article.

The pair were spotted at Rosh Hashanah holiday services at the Kabbalah Centre in New York City, but the Daily Mail reports that according to sources close to Kutcher she hasn’t started practicing the sect’s customs yet.
“Ashton is very serious about practicing Kosher. His team call ahead wherever he goes to make sure he won’t have a problem because there are also a number of foods he won’t eat. So far Mila hasn’t followed suit and has never made any dietary requests like Ashton,” the article states.

    The fact that it was “common parlance” is JUST a demonstration that a vast majority of people were OVERLY INSENSITIVE IF NOT HOSTILE to Jews.
    It was also very common parlance to call a “rabbi” someone who was stingy.
    In Italian I REMEMBER VERY CLEARLY, and it is STILL mentioned in some dictionaries, the term “maccabeo”, that is Maccabean, as one of the SYNONYMS for corpse. And I am not two hundred years old! I am speaking of the sixties-seventies!
    Shadow-ization, objectification, animalization, dehumanization de-individualization of Jews, are ALL the essence of antisemitism. Terms like occupiers, blood-suckers, conspirators, vermin, parasites, rats, etc. ALL ARE PART OF THE SAME PSYCHOPATHOLOGY WITH A VERY LONG HISTORY: antisemitism.

    Oooops, forgot to add:

    Kosher applies also to a way of life which besides some other things, includes honesty and loveing kindness(chessed)as well as observance of the dietary laws.
    (…the “ch” in chessed, has the sound of the “ch” in Chanukah.)

  • Sophie Osnah

    Jew comes from the tribe of Judah…Yehuda.
    Yehuda comes from the Hebrew hoddu (the “o” pronounced “o”as in “open”) (the “u” has the sound of “u” as in “poor”. Hoddu comes from the Hebrew verb…l’hoddot which means “to thank”.

    So… TO THANK has no gender.
    A Jew is a Jew.

    Please refrain from using the term “Jewess”. It is an offensive feminization of a noun which does not require it and puts Jews in the same category as animals – there is no such thing as an “Americaness” or “Muslimess”, but there is a “lioness”. The Nazis used this term to distinguish between humans and “sub-humans”. I’m surprised your publication let this get by.

    • There was a time when “spinster” meant a spinner who was male, while “spinstress” referred to a spinner who was female. “Jewess” was common parlance once upon a time; while it is unusual now, I’d hardly compare it to the femininization of an animal class.

      That said, it is true that English does not use “Muslimess” or “Americaness” – but English is awkward about gender on many counts.

    • Syed Aftab

      Actually, the feminine form of “Muslim” is “Muslima”, in Arabic. Although, not used by a typical American, in English, if a Muslima/Muslim is referring to a woman who observes Islam, she/he would refer to her as a “Muslima”.

        Yeah I always wondered who was the genious behind english probably some stoner …..always wondered how the word conservative started Era of disaster. .. and being conservative and being a conservative ends up being a Republican thing and yet it’s means to care for negative or positive or to be concerned about an action done 2-1 or oneself
        Ex: someone broke in my house killed my family I rush home anxiously concerned who did it
        Ex2 no cigarette laws on age or drinking…a caring person would be concerned about kids health or anyone that’s not me tally I’ll or insane.
        Now conservatives is a term used to label certain type of political people don’t you think any political person with love to be under a term that means I care in concerned about everything so I could baseli be an atheist and a liberal by politics but still be mostly conservative because that’s our general human nature,maMal instinct
        Now on I should just make up my own words and start some sort of new language in political ideas and laws from food groups on the food guid pyramid
