As far as I know,they are not available in the UK so I've no way of knowing,which is a pity as it appears to be something I might be allowed to eat. But yes I see your point.
Thanks YP,

On this topic, if you haven't yet seen the Daily Show's coverage of the Eiruv in the Hampton's...

It says "this video is not available from your location". Not that I would understand it anyway,but just in case you intend others in the UK to view it.
I think I can hazzard a guess at what "groisser tuches" means though :|

This link might work for you, Hart: http://www.thedailyshow.com/watch/wed-m ... n-jew-line

And all the Yiddish is translated (or comprehensible by context) -- this was shown on mainstream US tv.

Nope ! it's still the same, but thanks anyway rivka.
I remember my great granddad speaking some Yiddish,usually when he didn't want anyone else to know what he was saying, my Father explained some of it to me,I don't think I could print some of it on here though. :)

Oh wow... lol
sheesh american jews , while the rest of the diaspora's jews are wondering how to get their tuches safely to shul on shabbat. Ahh I love the USA hehe. Eruvim, great concept sephardim never really took advantage of in my opinion ;)

Enora, sephardim may not use them (I don't think that's entirely true, actually), but ashkenazim do throughout Europe and in Israel -- not just in the US.

Hart, that's it. Sadly, the anti-eruv folks are for real. They are concerned about being overrun by Orthodox Jews. Large chunks of the video are tongue-in-cheek or deliberately edited to be funny, but the underlying issue is real.

Well, that is very sad indeed and to make a joke of it is pathetic in my view and this guy Wyatt Cenac is supposed to be a commedian ? not a very good one if it's at the expense of others.

I am not going to try to defend The Daily Show -- it's not my thing at all. (Although I did find this particular piece hilarious.) It's very American humor, to be sure.
