I love this commentary. It's taking the mickey out of ordinary Jews who are intolerant of their own kind - and it's about time! How can Christians be expected to support an Eruv if non-orthodox Jews don't! For God's sake - yes His sake - lighten up!!! How can so many people be so damn selfish!! I don't even live in the US so I have nothing to gain - but I am a Jew and it sickens me to see this kind of intolerance among Jews.

RE: Shelley

Shelley, remember, this is Jon Stewart. Everybody's mocked on this program- it's all one big joke. We should be lucky we got off so lightly!

Ring Around A Not so Rosy Community ?

Imagination is funny --it makes the cloudy day sunny--but circumventing the kosher laws for such an imaginary cause is akin to pushing the envelope beyond what's intended & one has to be careful of who is offended ? What say you ?

You may have misunderstood Jerald....

The Eruv has no ties to the laws of Kosher, it simply allows Jews to carry on Sabbath (inc. pushing strollers...) by making the entire area into one domain for the purposes of Sabbath (B/C Jewish Laws prohibit carrying from one domain to another on Sabbath).
