There are 14 comments on Sarah Silverman, Rabbi Sister Riff on “Jewy-ness”

  1. I mean, there’s hunger and starvation in the world and here you have a house that’s a city.” Agree with her point, but I am sure Silverman herself is not living in a modest 1 bedroom apartment.

  2. Maybe try a different browser or make sure that your browser is up to date? Firefox just released a new update. Let us know if you’re still having problems!

  3. What a Chillul Hashem. This is how BU’s Department of “religion” explores Judaism, by two people who defame the religion and flagrantly ignore its basic laws and cultural norms?

    1. You do know that there are many ways to express one’s Judaism. If every Jew did nothing more than live moral lives as the Silvermans (all of them) do, then everyone of us would be a “good” Jew.

    2. I am confused as to how Susan Silverman is defaming Judaism and flagrantly ignoring its basic laws and cultural norms. Let’s see, she studies Torah, lovingly parents five children and teaches them Torah, supports a daughter in the IDF, lives in Jerusalem, keeps kosher, and DOESN’T JUDGE OTHER PEOPLE! Sounds like a pretty good Jew to me…

  4. Updated to latest Firefox release (8.0) and video still doesn’t work. “Server not found” message. Too many people trying to access at once perhaps? Is there a mirror site hosting the video somewhere? Thanks.
