TV, Radio, Internet...dishing dirt since 2001
Adam's movies are goofy and hokey, but can be made with little cost, making it easy for everyone to profit. He's like the Jewish Tyler Perry, they found an entertainment niche, and they filled it with creativity. I don't consider Adam as talented as Jerry Lewis was, but he didn't have to be, and was still quite successful. Not my cup of tea, but he used his talents.
I wish I was Jewish for the latkes, boiled bagels and bank account. Happy Chanukkah!-an admiring Goyim
I am Jewish and I too wish I had a bigger bank account as well.
Well, that was fun. Thank you for sharing, Rich. I would think that Adam "singing" like that would make his throat hurt.
RichWhy is Hanukkah sometimes spelled with a C and most of the time with an H??
Great question...you would think I know--I don't. But I'm betting the experts out there will answer your question soon.
Hanukkah begins this week. So does Chanukah, Hannukah, Hannukkah, and Channukah.Confused? We don’t blame you. Why is this Jewish holiday, also known as the Festival of Lights, spelled in so many ways?The answer comes down to transliteration. Unlike translation, transliteration is when you “change (letters, words, etc.) into corresponding characters of another alphabet or language.” In Hebrew, the language from which the Jewish festival originates, the word for Hanukkah is not easily transliterated into English. This accounts for why there are so many spelling variants. But Hanukkah and Chanukah are the two versions that are most widely used and accepted.Hanukkah lasts for eight days. It commemorates the rededication of the Second Temple in Jerusalem. Scholars disagree about how to interpret the Hebrew word for Hanukkah. But one common interpretation is that it means “dedication.”On each night of the holiday, a different branch of a candelabrum called a menorah is illuminated. The festival is also celebrated by indulging in latkes, or fried potato pancakes. Children play a game involving a type of wooden or plastic top called a dreide
How did the potato, a new world plant, become such a Jewish tradition? What did they do before Columbus?
Columbus was also Jewish.
I always thought the potato saved the Irish?
Chanukah is spelled all sorts of ways because, as mentioned above in a longer, more thorough post, it is a Hebrew word so there really is no correct English spelling as long as it reads right phonetically.
