The Toyota on the Synagogue Steps

Special to the Jewish Week

Just about a week and a half ago, an elderly man drove his car through the bushes in front of my synagogue, onto the steps leading up to the main entrance on the service road of Queens Boulevard.  It's not clear what the cause was, although because he was driving a Toyota, his claim that the car accelerated on him suddenly seems (pun fully intended) to have caught traction.  I don't know.  Actually, I wasn't there at the time, and didn't think all that much of it.

The most famous person with roots in the northeast corner of Slovakia is Andy Warhol, the late pop artist and avant-garde filmmaker whose parents came from the village of Mikova. The most famous Jews in the area are Franz Kafka, Golda Meir, Albert Einstein. They are among the 10 Jews in an exhibition of Warhol silkscreen prints, fittingly named “Portraits of Ten Jews,” at the Warhol Family Museum of Modern Art in Medzilaborce, a few miles from Mikova in the Subcarpathian foothills.

Krispy Kreme doughnuts. Oreos. M&M's. These are some of America's favorite sweets that have come under kosher certification in recent years. It's not just desserts. Campbell's Soup, one of the oldest and most noted food manufacturers in the country (remember Andy Warhol's famous prints?) announced this week that its condensed Vegetarian Vegetable Soup is now certified kosher by the Orthodox Union.
