This week on Jewbellish The News: Why Jews are excited about Thanksgiving this year; Obama’s clothing in China, Ambulances in Queens New York and Jewbellish weather.
– One is not permitted to throw out an image of the holy LoopHoler Rebbe. One must cut out His image and bury it before throwing out the WSJ.
– The punishment, for accidentally throwing out the paper without cutting out His image, is getting stoned. (Not the Iranian way.)
– The LoopHoler Rebbe, however, allows you to draw a new nose [in black ink] on His image, in order to throw it out. That visual nasal adjustment renders the image to the category of “some other Jew” and not the holy LoopHoler. Thereby being permissible to trash.

I was giving a talk before 400 people at a reform temple in New York. I started the talk asking the audience to raise their hand if they’ve ever been approached by a hasid asking if they were Jewish.
Every single person raised their hand. In which I uncontrollably responded, “damn, we’re good!”
Last week we posted one such REAL episode of a Chabad Hasid running after a New Yorker to blow shofar. In that spirit, Scott Rogowsky created this video parodying the YouTube hit: 10 Hours of Walking in NYC as a Woman.
