Joey (Newcomb): Jolliest, Jiggiest, Joyfulmost, Jammingest, Jingo-master

It's not often that such raw talent appears on the scene and hits it out of the park three albums in a row, yet R' Joey Newcomb is back with his 3rd megahit album.

What sets R Joey apart is his hartzig niggunim coupled with his sincere humbleness.

Joey is able to take the simple messages in life and turn them into music that sings from the soul.

Cackling Camela Contacts Covid

The current VPOTUS is Biden's insurance that he won't be deposed.

The woman who failed on immigration and just about every project she touched, just seems to laugh it all off.

The fact that her staff is leaving her office in droves makes one very wary of having her in the Oval Office.

Now it seems that this fully vaccinated, boostered specimen has come down with Covid.

Accomplished Author Astor's Awesome Awaken! (Yaakov Astor)

This beautifully crafted book is the perfect antidote to evolutionist thinking.

Over 450 pages of pure creationist information, presented in a non-preaching manner.

Reads like a novel, a real pageturner that one can't put down.

Highly recommended.

Jewish Jubilation: Joyous Journeys V Jingles Jamboree

The long (18 years) awaited Journeys album by Abie Rotenberg has finally been released!

The music is great and the songs are thought-provoking but they don't measure up to the first 3 Journeys albums which were a league of their own.

The genious of Abie Rotenberg is how he always used the right voice for each particular song. On this album he has Shloime Gertner, Lev Tahor, Mordechai Shapiro, Shulem Lemmer, Avraham Fried, Joey Newcomb, Gershon Veroba, Tali Yess and the Maccabeats.

I am puzzled with the Moshe Yess song that he chose, when MY has so many more popular songs.

In any event, it is valuable to add to your Jewish Music collection. Buy it!

Where's Walder? Wicked Writer White-Washed

I have taken a hiatus from blogging, yet every now and again some news item strikes my fancy and I question whether to get back to the blog.

What is happening in the Walder case has finally convinced me to jump back in the ring.

For far too long we have protected perpetrators, whether for Tzniyus or other reasons at the expense of the victims. This needs to stop.

Loshon Hora did not kill Walder. He killed himself. Literally.

It is interesting to note, that these allegations go back 25 years. The first Kids Speak book was published in Hebrew in 1993 (28 years ago). In that book, there is a story titled Stay Away From Strangers, in which the protagonist seemingly is abused. Yet she is able to heal because she told her parents her secret.

In a more recent book, People Speak volume IV, there is a story on page 85 (What is Hateful to You) where the upshot is not to go to the press/media with bad news about someone, as that someone might be your close relative.

I wonder if abusers are made, not born, as that is what this "evidence" seems to bear.

Misfortune Mars Mount Meron Merriment

Growing up Lag Baomer meant going to the park during school and, as Abie Rottenberg notes, playing That Game.

In recent years thousands have flocked to Meron to participate in huge bonfires.

Although there is precedent in the Sephardic and Chassidic communities, the Litvish Yeshivos were never really part of this phenomenon until recently.

I suppose it is because today's children need some kosher outlets and this is one of them.

In any event, as many Gedolim have said, it is better to stay in the Beis Medrash and learn than to go to Meron.

Similarly, it is better to stay home and Daven with family than to travel to Uman for Rosh Hashana.

Condescending Covid Commander-in-Chief Cuomo - Criminal Conduct Crushes Career

See how the mighty have fallen. One year ago this man lectured us on Covid, won an Emmy award and was on the fast track to the White House. But now that it is becoming clear how he sent seniors to their deaths, covered it up, and has been labeled a Menuval, his career is over. Good Riddance.
