The Most Mysterious Mensch
Impossible. Ingenious. Nice Jewish Boy.
Esti Ginzburg Allow us to happily introduce you to Esti Ginzburg. At twenty one, this Tel Aviv native has been working as an actress and model for thirteen years - since she was eight years old. One might say her career has officially been bat mitzvahed. In 2009, she willingly entered into military service in Israel - a move that other models (*cough* BAR RAFAELI *cough*) dodged. Says the...
Yeah, we did that.
Google When you think about the presence that Google has in the world today, it’s hard to actually fathom the sheer amount of people doing/thinking/using something Google related. It may just be easier to list the facts: 1) Most visited website on the internet with 7.2 billion daily page views from 620 million users. 2) Most data processed on the internet with 24 petabytes per day...
Our Funny Valentine
Woody Allen Neurotic. Romantic. Nice Jewish Boy.
Kibbitz & Kvetch is like the Jewbauchery version of Goofus & Gallant. Each entry will take a topic up for debate between your hosts, Matt & Jay, who will discuss the finer points of each side. Matt: Not many things are more inherently part of a culture than its food. The Japanese have the California Roll. The Italians have pizza. The Mexicans have Taco Bell. The Jews are no...
What Shabbat Means To Us
OR: How We Learned To Stop Worrying And Love The Kiddush You might be surprised to learn — we shouldn’t assume. Rather, we were surprised to learn — that Shabbat is the most important ritual in Judaism. Derived from the root Shin-Beit-Tav, the Sabbath (an anagram, for Hashem’s sake!) is the only Jewish ritual that’s actually name-dropped in the Ten Commandments,...
Yeah, we did that.
Jeans There’s few things more classic than blue jeans. Dependable, durable - a perfect standby. They go great with an old t-shirt, a sweater or a dress shirt and blazer. They are worn around the world by people from all different cultural backgrounds. And we wouldn’t be wearing these beloved fashion items if it wasn’t for the Jews. Between two of them, they would...
Glad You Could Join Us...
We can be very persuasive. Over the years, many shiksas have fallen prey to our devilish charm, our sparkling dark eyes and our cheek-pinching bubbes. Not that we can blame them. Let’s take a quick look at some of our favorite former shiksas: 1) Elizabeth Banks If you didn’t tell us she wasn’t Jewish from birth, we’d never know. Her mother worked in a bank. She...
Classic Cool Convert
Sammy Davis, Jr. Smooth. Showstopper. Nice Jewish Boy.
Kibbitz & Kvetch is like the Jewbauchery version of Goofus & Gallant. Each entry will take a topic up for debate between your hosts, Matt & Jay, who will discuss the finer points of each side. Jay: For those who don’t know, Matt and I are your hosts here at Jewbauchery. Our topic today is (duh) tattoos. Matt has tattoos, I do not. Matt: I have one. But it’s awesome. ...
Yeah, we did that.
The Pyramids It’s kind of ironic how the ancient Egyptians who once enslaved our people for our labor and the fact that we had the Big Guy on our side versus their Anubis (the god of the dead who had the head of a jackal) are now they themselves fighting for their freedom. As free Jews who savor the privilege of independence, we acknowledge the struggle our forefathers went through to...
More like GREAT Shabbos. Brazenly stolen from the archives over at Next Shabbat New York, we bring you: 2 oz Stoli 1.5 oz Kedem concord grape juice 1/2 oz lime juice Club soda Add first three ingredients to a mixing glass, shake with ice and strain up into a chilled martini glass or serve on the rocks if desired. Top with club soda and garnish with a grape or lime wedge. Pro-tip: if you...
What is it about Jewish men that non-Jewish women love? Kiddush cup refills. When a Jewish man dates a non-Jewish woman (a ‘shiksa’, if you will), the burden of guilt usually - and appropriately - falls on the man. Why is he dating outside of the faith? What, he’s too good for Jewish girls? Does he want his parents to have a heart attack? What is his problem? Allow us...
The Original Kings of the West
Meyer Lansky & Bugsy Siegel Visionaries. Thugs. Nice Jewish Boys.
Jews get a bad rap. In pop culture, we’re often depicted as nerdy. Awkward. Stingy. Bad with women. Meek. Nervous. Jittery, even. Rich. Lazy. Sloppy. Easy. Weak. We’re not those Jews. Of ‘the Jew’, Mark Twain once wrote: “He has made a marvelous fight in this world, in all the ages; and had done it with his hands tied behind him…. The Egyptian, the Babylonian, and...
