Weekly Unscrolled Torah Portion: B’Shallah

January 14, 2022

“Every battle morning he puts on his Lucky “Israelites” tunic with Joshua’s name on the back. Which I’m not allowed to wash. I personally believe it’s unlucky to smell like the end of a day of pyramid building in the middle of Av. Then he has to eat his manna from his Lucky Bowl since the Red Sea opened the afternoon after he happened to eat from it.”


Joel Stein was not easy to work with on this bio. The only verifiable facts he provided were that he wrote a column for Time for 20 years, along with 22 cover stories; that he was a columnist for Entertainment Weekly and the L.A. Times; that he is the author of the books Man Made and In Defense of Elitism. There is no basis for his claim that his writing has “saved millions of lives and destroyed many more marriages.”
