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?"!!!
