    I work for the NYS Assembly so if I missed that final, I'd never be able to show my face again.

    As a Jewish woman who has marked close to 100 Passover seders, I can do the plagues in Hebrew and English in my sleep. In fact, when my kids were little, they did a frog song . "One morning when Pharaoh woke in his bed, there were frogs on his toes and frogs on his head...." I often thought we had a tough pr sell with Passover compared to Easter. Chocolate, bunnies and chicks, or matzah, blood, lice, boils and dead first borns. Oy! But I did sweep the category!
  4. I noticed today that the opening scene in this episode, Ethan playing with Abe's cigar box non-toys, complete with crayon drawing summer 1959, was a shout out to the opening of "To Kill a Mockingbird "

    So true. After all Deja and Shawna lived in Newark, which is an underserved community. But it was Wiliam's building. 🙄

    So, aside from the residency issue, is Randall running a primary challenge against a sitting councilmember or is this a General Election? What party does Randall belong to? You don't just run because you want to. I've worked for an elected official for 13 years. It doesn't work that way.

    I was pretty turned off by Kate's "I've been trapped in this body" pity party. Excuse me, but people with ALS or paralysis are trapped in their bodies. You can lose weight. She is so annoying. I thought Beth was going to tell Kevin now to hurt Zoe, not the other way around.

    S01.E07: Put That On Your Plate!

    I just watched this episode and just have to say that the beautiful synagogue the Maisels attend is the East Midwood Jewish Center in Brooklyn, where I attended school and had my Bat Mitzvah. I was so thrilled to see it. Such a gorgeous sanctuary.

    Really glad that Ryan is gone. Did he really say "Jew" for 400 instead of Jewish American? Oy!

    I truly hate myself for this but I remembered the red/white stripe ratio from a song on Barney that I sat through 3000 times when the kiddies were little.

    S02.E07: Chapter Seven: The Lost Sister

    Not my favorite episode. That crew was less believable than the demogorgons. But I just realized that El looked like Kristy McnNichol https://www.google.com/search?q=kristy+mcnichol&client=ms-android-motorola&prmd=inv&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwijm5_mpMTYAhXnQt8KHfoeCngQ_AUIESgB&biw=360&bih=263#imgrc=cwwOyeUfFCiN8M:

    It must be my age, but with the missing person lurking in the walls, I thought of Bad Ronald.

    I thought maybe that's why there was a rugelach question!

    The phrase is Tikkun Olam. Olam means world and tikkun means to heal or repair. The concept is that we have an obligation to do what we can to leave things better then they were before we got here. There is a real emphasis on this life in Judaism. Charity,Tzedakah, acts of loving kindness, and compassion for others are highly valued. My favorite prayer is called Sim Shalom. It asks G-d to favor us with peace, goodness and blessings, mercy and kindness. Wish we could ask agree on that and live together in peace and with respect. That said, Matt baffles me. He can be pretty obnoxious, then he talks about Tikkun Olam & messes with my head.

    I thought Evan's Oliver Wendell Holmes answer for the future justice who argued Brown v Board was just as bad as the Harry Truman answer. Clearly just a random guess.
