Here are some of the top moments from the Jewish year just departed. Then there’s Mel Brooks, the first Jewish “Bachelorette”, Sarah Silverman thanking “my Jews”, Hollywood’s Gaza Twitter war, Miss Margalit and The Baby Biggs brit.

    Dr Ruth is an absolute hoot! SAJR’s non-executive director, Howard Sackstein, interviewed her late on Monday night SA time over Skype. Ant Katz was on hand to record the event – except when he was laughing too raucously to type and had to refer to the recording afterwards. Read this frank interview with the world’s ‘sexpert’ who will visit SA shores later this month! This has to be the read of the week!
