Jewish Connection

My husband ztl Rabbi Joseph H. Feinstein wrote this show in the 1970's when we lived in Los Angeles. Baruch Hashem for many years this show has been replayed and is still shown. The concluding lines of this show brings forth the similarities of the Jewish people and the Black being both having been slaves and the desire to work together and understand each other. I am still very proud when my children, grandchildren see this video. The humor of being a Jew came through with pride and joy.

I will never forget Rabbi Feinstein

In 1975, I studied with your husband when I converted to Judaism. He was a funny guy. He was giving me the serious talk about the Jewish respect for life when a fly annoyed him with its buzzing. So, he reached over and smacked it dead. You asked, "What was that about the Jewish respect for life?" And Rabbi Feinstein answered, "Let him pay his share of the rent. Then he can live." Your husband encouraged me to pursue my own dream of being a writer and gave himself as the example of how it was possible for anyone to write for TV and film. I will never forget him and I will never forget your hospitality and kindness.

Jewish Prerequisites

They would have to sign up for a crash course in jewish words and use them asap.Goy and shiksa would be at the top of the list.They would also have to be a victim of anti semitic diatribes to understand what jews have endured for centuries.Not until those conditions have been met can they be officially known as jews.Shalom.
