My People (& our stuff)
A hodge-podge of Jews from all walks of life, all over the world, extraordinary and ordinary. Plus examples of our traditions, humor, food, chatchkes, and history (4,000 years is a long time!). Many folks here are expected (Barbra, Seinfeld, Bernstein, Dayan, Dylan, Brooks/Reiner). But I aim for most responses to be "who knew?"!!! Of course, some of these assignations of "Jewish" are/can be simply wishful thinking on a lot of people's parts! In any case, enjoy, darling. And eat - you look thin.
