You've Got a Latke to Learn

A few goyim friends have kvetched about not having a Jew & A during Hanukkah this year. Clearly, they didn't realize that the Hebrew calendar is such that next year's Hanukkah actually started yesterday.*

* You may not be able to find this information on any other site. But who are you going to believe: me, or the internet?

What this means is you still get to participate in my 6th Annual Jew & A. Basically...

I will answer any question you have about Judaism.

That's right: Post any question(s) you might have about Jews or Judaism in the comments section before Hanukkah Secondah ends (i.e. sundown on 12/20), and I will answer them for you.

Perhaps you've always wanted to know how to identify if someone's Jewish just by looking. Or which styles of yarmulke are in this holiday season. Or maybe you're dying to know if the Red Sea naturally parts on the right or the left. Whatever your query, send it my way. Even if it's been asked before, don't let that stop you — much like the Jewish calendar, the answers to such questions are in constant flux.

So, what do you want to know?

  3. So, as I am a goy or one of the goyim, I want to know more about the yarmulke. We can start with what styles and colors are in this season. Is it common to have seasonal yarmulke(s)? When does Aaron get to wear one?

  4. How upset were Mary and Joseph when Jesus betrayed their faith and converted away from Judaism?

  5. What the heck is going on with those silly Eruv strings? Or, put another way, how much string should a rabbi string if a rabbi did string string?
