Happy New Year to All Our Jewish Wine Drinking Friends!

Today is the Jewish New Year and the Day of Atonement.

Did you know that there are only 430 Jews living in North Dakota?

Furthermore, there are only 295 Jews living in South Dakota!

There are over 90,000 Jews in Montreal, not counting my son and daughter who equal one Jew combined.

My daughter is fasting today and tried to go to a Synagogue yesterday. She has only been to a Synagogue two or three times in her life (assorted relatives of mine had Jewish Mitzvah's or Jewish Weddings, etc.) but she wanted to go yesterday.

No one would let her in because she did not a "ticket."

One nice thing about being of the Jewish persuasion, which I am, is that I can make Jewish jokes and not be accused of being an anti-semite.

Although I am open to the charge of being a "self-hater."

Happy Yom Kippur!

Alyce should move to Portland. There are 36,000 Jews here, and only some Synagogues require tickets. Like a good Jew, I found a bargain here and didn't have to pay a penny.

How could anyone turn away a blond-haired Jewish daughter like yours!

Maybe that's why it's so hard to find a decent wine shop in Sioux Falls.

That, or the lack of Italians.
