    Manju Das was quite possibly the richest housemaid in the world at one point, with close to two million dollars in her bank account. Today she lives in a hut, her body wracked in pain because she can’t afford any medical treatment, and is brought two meals a day by her son or nephew out […]

    Of all the tens of thousands of emails being released from Hillary Clinton’s private email account, the one I find most interesting has two words in the subject line: Gefilte Fish.

Are there too many greener Jews flowing into the Lower East Side from all over Europe and Russia or are there not enough. […]

    I’m pretty confident I have weird feet. I don’t know if they’re flat, crooked, or inverted, but they don’t seem to fit into most shoes like a hand fits in a glove. If you’re a podiatrist and reading this, please don’t email me back with suggestions or diagnoses, I’ve been to doctors and they always […]

    Dear Friend,
    It is that time of the year again, time for the largest event on the Detroit Jewish Community’s calendar, the amazing and outstanding Yeshiva Beth Yehuda Dinner.
