This Week’s Links

This week’s links are blissfully non-political. Enjoy:

— Angelina Jolie, who gave birth to twins in Paris on Saturday, has a Jewish obstetrician. Dr. Michel Sussmann was pleased the babies were born on a Shabbos: “The delivery was very emotional and exceptional as Ms. Jolie is a superstar, but I think that it happened on Shabbat made it that much more moving.”

— The Center for Kosher Culinary Arts, only the second professional kosher school in the world, and the only one in North America, is up and running in Flatbush, NY.

— An old Jon Stewart video has surfaced from 1999 (via Dovbear). The young (and in-need-of-a-haircut) Stewart pokes fun at a screaming match between Orthodox and Reform Jews at the Western Wall.

— Are you afraid of the decline of denim styles? Not to worry, Israeli designer Nathan Menashe (Freedom of Choice) has it under control.

— Sacha Baron Cohen (Da Ali G show, Borat) has an Oscar vote!

— Looks like you might have to put that nose job you were planning on hold. Judaism apparently frowns on cosmetic surgery.

The Huffington Post satirizes the contentious New Yorker cover. (Oops. Did we say no politics?)
