Jewish Opera Singers

Jewish Opera Singers

The trouble with newspapers is that they are full of news. Older stuff – no matter how informative, how entertaining – tends to be ignored.

Worthwhile old anecdotes, old stories, old witticisms, old history.

Hence, this blog. Which, naturally, will focus on Jews and Judaism.

Good stuff that didn’t somehow make it into this most excellent newspaper.

Two rules:

1. An emphasis on the upbeat.

2. Nothing decidedly off-color.
