Oh, come on. H&M has pulled a culturally insensitive garment off their racks following a backlash from offended customers. The shirt was a tank top with a Star of David–an important religious symbol for Jewish people–surrounding a skull. So that’s not great. More

Hello everyone! It’s time now for a new column called “Sex Tips From History,” wherein each week I will spotlight a useful sex and/or love tip from that greatest sex instructor of all, history. Some of them are going to be awful, so maybe don’t try them at home. Or do, but be aware that some people hate history and hence will not take kindly to your attempts to bring it into the bedroom.

The grass is always greener on the other side. Growing up, I hated my stick-straight hair and would have given anything for a rich, curly mane. However, my other Jewish girlfriends spent a fortune on straightening products to tame their curls. Now, thanks partially to Glee, people are finally wising up to the beauty of the Jewfro. Moment magazine is sponsoring a “Frizziest of the Fros” Jewfro contest on their Facebook page. More

Over the weekend, I observed the Jewish holiday of Sukkot. Basically, it’s a holiday where people build huts and eat and sleep in them. So, my friends “Gershon” and “Rivka” had a sukkah (singular name of one of the huts) at their house and invited some people over for Saturday lunch. Because it was very hot out that day, I am pale, and the afternoon involved sitting in a freaking hut, I wore a kicky little straw hat.
There’s one other important detail of this story. I am single, which means that attending a Jewish event of any sort will result in people trying to matchmake for me. No, it’s not because I’m some great beauty or something – it’s because I am a single Jewish chick and that is what happens. To avoid being matchmade, I brought a dude with me. More
Yesterday, we wrote about Jewlybandz, a Jewish-themed knockoff of Silly Bandz that had one band shaped like a dollar sign. Since then, many websites have picked up the story.

As Silly Bandz continue to be hugely popular, they’re getting knocked off left and right. A company called Benny’s Educational Toys is selling a Jewish-themed line of bracelets called JewlyBandz. Like Meshuga Bandz, JewlyBandz come in shapes like a menorah. However, they also come in another shape – a dollar bill symbol. Because Jews love money, you guys! I’m so glad there’s an educational toy that points that out! More
