    Lack of available options may have started what has become a full-fledged ritual among American Jewry. A regular user submitted this story to share with other users – it starts off with a howler of a short video during Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan’s 2010 confirmation hearing which, more than any other single moment, may have transitioned the tradition from “from kitsch into codified custom” says Adam Chandler, writing on THEATLANTIC.com this week.

    Campus battlefields are now more level

    THE RHODES FIASCO, WHAT IT COST THEM & WHO LEFT AFTER OUR EXPOSÉ. The rise of toxic anti-Zionism, followed by the fall of a once-revered University has all the makings of a novel, a thriller. Over 3 years it involved institutional spying on Jews & illicit use of public funds to bash Israel. After determined attempts by some Jewish leaders to leave it alone & those of a brave few to fight & conquer, Rhodes’ devastating & very expensive defeat, loss of leadership & huge losses of Jewish donor funding proved a lesson to institutions with more intellect at the helm.

    Rolene should change name to 'Occupier Barbie'

    Dec 31, 2014 3 Comments
    An angry Rolene Marks lashes out at the alarming levels of global anti-Semitism and the person who told her to change her handle. And, says Rolene, “some of the invective is worthy of Der Sturmer circa 1938.” Jews are being singled out for persecution, Facebook has become a battlefield where the lines have become clearly demarcated and many can claim losing life-long “friends” due to differing opinions.
