Elvis and King David
3 of Elvis's closest friends all said Elvis believed he was the reincarnation of King David of Israel and he really believed it. Isn't that erie in lieu of the revalation that is he Jewish. I think it's great.I'm not Jewish, but I'd be proud to be. There was something about Elvis's spirit. friend say they knew when he was home or not the moment they drove by or went into graceland.

I happen to have worked at the Hospital of Hope in Montreal (executive director of the Foundation) and also Rabbi Poupko is the rabbi of my congregation Beth Israel Beth Aaron in Cote St. Luc. What a great article for me for old homeweek. Where can I see the whole movie?? That is why Rabbi Poupko is Elvis every purim!! He is a try-to-be Elvis Shmelvis.

Elvis and the Fruchters
How delightful! Jeanette Fruchter attended our Temple in Albany, Ohav Shalom Shabbat mornings after the Rabbi's death and I often sat with her. She loved talking about Elvis, who she said was a wonderful young man and how he used to visit with them and enjoyed listening to the Rabbi's records of famous Chazzanim. It was nice seeing her in yur little movie.

He's definitely not. what you heard is not true. people think that just because he set sail for Asia at the time of the inquisition means he's Jewish. that is ridiculous.
