A bunch of years ago I flew Lufthansa, I called the OU, they told me the Rav of Frankfurt (might be different one then now) hechsher is pure tarfus.
On the plane an ehrliche frum Jew seated near me was eating the meat, I told him what the OU told me, he points to the hechsher, and says "Frankfurter Rav", I told him, "you know the Pnei Yehoshua isn't the Rav in Frankfurt anymore?", the guy just continued on with his meal.

ויותר יעקב לבדו. while fighting with the שטן.
whats the dancing all abt?
Gets even harder to understand, when the connection between the passuk in the low part and high part is a mysterious Medrash:

וַיִּוָּתֵר יַעֲקֹב לְבַדּוֹ וַיֵּאָבֵק אִישׁ עִמּוֹ (דברים לג) אין כאל ישורון רוכב שמים בעזרך ר' ברכיה בשם ר"י בר' סימון אמר אין כאל ומי כאל ישורון הנאים והמשובחין שבכם אתה מוצא כל מה שהקב"ה עתיד לעשות לעת"ל הקדים ועשה על ידי הצדיקים בעוה"ז הקב"ה מחיה המתים ואליהו מחיה את המתים הקב"ה עוצר גשמים ואליהו עוצר גשמים הקב"ה מברך את המועט ואליהו מברך את המועט הקב"ה מחיה את המתים ואלישע מחיה את המתים הקב"ה פוקד עקרות ואלישע פוקד עקרות הקב"ה מברך את המועט ואלישע מברך את המועט הקב"ה ממתיק את המר ואלישע ממתיק את המר הקב"ה ממתיק את המר במר ואלישע המתיק את המר במר ר' ברכיה בשם ר' סימון אמר אין כאל ומי כאל ישורון ישראל סבא מה הקב"ה כתוב בו (ישעיהו ב) ונשגב ה' לבדו אף יעקב ויותר יעקב לבדו:

Yeedle IV is the greatest Jewish album ever. IMHO.

Can someone explain the nutcase candidates?
Is it a British tradition?

Wonder why the last second decision to go to the grocery store instead of the shul. Probably the combination lock.

Lecha Dodi
Baruch Levine
its leil shabbos koidesh
he wanders on in
stands in the back
as the teffilos begin
the mystical words
of lecha doidi
theres something about
that sweet melody
invited for dinner
zemiros they sing
infusing his soul
with the joy that they bring
closing his eyes
his heart starts to soar
perhaps we can sing
that sweet song once more
לכה דודי לקרת כלה
פני שבת נקבלה
לכה דודי לקרת כלה
פני שבת נקבלה
they asked him who are you
and where were you born
ramallahs my home
but inside i feel torn
i was taught to hate jews
to hurt and to maim
but i felt a connection i could not explain
with anger and fury
thrown out of my home
confused and forsaken
i left there alone
but i feel something strange here
his voice fills the room
and over and over hes singing this tune
לכה דודי לקרת כלה
פני שבת נקבלה
לכה דודי לקרת כלה
פני שבת נקבלה
returned to my mother to say my goodbyes
she told me the truth
with tears in her eyes
i was taken by force
were jewish, now run
heres a picture to treasure
its where you come from
they gathered and stared
at the photo he held
an image of his grandfathers
grave it beheld
רב שלמה עלקביץ
his kever in tzfas
who wrote lecha doidi we sing leil shabbos
לכה דודי לקרת כלה
פני שבת נקבלה
לכה דודי לקרת כלה
פני שבת נקבלה
לכה דודי לקרת כלה
פני שבת נקבלה
לכה דודי לקרת כלה
פני שבת נקבלה

FTFY
True, but the GOP recently have taken it to Orwellian levels.

The R's are still crying about releasing the whistleblowers name. They just don't get it. Who made the charges is meaningless. The charges themselves are what matters.
They want to build a deep state narrative, and they want the WB to be the face of that narrative.
The GOP abandoned truth a long time ago.
