From the penthouses of Park Avenue to the remote villages of rural Africa, women may be finding a whole lot more support in their bra straps — all thanks to the universally versatile technology known as the cellular phone.
Constanza Garcia was looking to book New York performances for “Klezmer en Buenos Aires” — a tango-inflected klezmer duo that she promotes. She immediately thought of Makor, the cultural center on the Upper West Side that caters to Jews in their 20s and 30s.
“I thought Makor would be the right place for klezmer,” Garcia says. But Makor passed.
With Islam’s top religious leaders publicly sanctioning suicide bombings against Jews, outraged New York rabbis plan to protest the behavior of their religious counterparts at a demonstration in front of the Palestine Mission next Monday.
Members of fire-ravaged Central Synagogue on Manhattan’s East Side expressed heartfelt appreciation to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for his brief visit to show support for the congregation devastated by an Aug. 28 blaze.
The visit last Sunday marked Netanyahu’s first official trip to a Reform synagogue since he took office two years ago. Reform movement leaders said it signified progress in their attempt to gain greater recognition in Israel.

“Them shiney gold coins
Sure looked bright and jolly
I took the money home and I gave it to my Molly.
She promised and she swore that she never would deceive me
But the devil’s in the women and they never can be easy
Musha rigum duram da
Whack-fo the daddy-o
There’s whiskey in the jar.”
– Irish folk tune
