His father, a Polish-born immigrant, was a paperhanger, then a storekeeper.

A Tribute To Our Jewish Confederate Heroes

A Tribute To Our Jewish Confederate Heroes
By: Heritage Not Hate Productions

“We count about 10,000 to 12,000 Jews who are serving in our Army” – General Samuel Cooper

“We were not fighting for the perpetuation of slavery, but for the principles of States Rights and Free Trade, and in defense of our homes which were being ruthlessly invaded.” – Moses Jacob Ezekiel

“I am still a living witness and can, from my own memory, give you many names of gallant Jewish soldiers of the confederate Army. I had ample opportunity to see and to know. Many a wounded Jew have I met in the hospitals of Richmond and administered to his wants, and many a Jewish soldier have I seen walking on his crutch or having his arm in a sling, traveling to and from his command during the war. And I know further that it was simply a sense of loyalty to their homes and their neighbors that prompted them to fight for the South. If not, they could readily have left this country at any time as I myself could have done, had I so chosen. But love for our adopted country kept us here and we offered all we had in its behalf.” – Joseph Goldsmith 1895

Jewish History Lecture Series by Rabbi Dovid Katz

The National Center for Jewish Film.

25.03.2014
Jerry Seinfeld, Larry David, Dave Foley, and Martin Short contribute to this hilarious must-see documentary. David Steinberg—aptly described as a cross between Woody Allen and Lenny Bruce—took the comedy world by storm in the 1960s. Steinberg’s satiric, literate and defiantly Jewish material landed him on Nixon’s enemies list and on Johnny Carson’s Tonight Show couch more than 100 times (second only to Bob Hope). Today, Steinberg is a sought after comedy director.

Network 1976 – Speech

05.08.2010
Network is a 1976 American satirical film
The film was written by Paddy Chayefsky and directed by Sidney Lumet
The film won four Academy Awards

Thirty years after its release to public praise and multiple Oscar wins, Network is one of those films that instead of dating badly or becoming a product of its time has actually grown and become even more relevant today, and if it were re-released in 2006 for its actual thirtieth anniversary not on film but on national television right at the beginning of the fall season (complete with the most lurid reality TV shows and inane TV pleasers), it would only become more justified in its story.
