Click on continuity, and caring. That’s what more than 600 people, mostly from New York’s Sephardic community, were doing last Saturday night at the Metropolitan Pavilion in Chelsea when they came together to mingle, maybe meet a mate, and raise money to buy computers for poor Israeli children. The event was sponsored by the Young Leadership Division of the Israeli Sephardic Educational Foundation (ISEF) on behalf of “Screens for Kids.”

In the pages of The New Yorker, a cartoon shows an Orthodox Jew with a protruding nose walking away from his just-spanked son. The child is holding a drawing of a sack of money. "So let that be a lesson to you, Abie," the father warns. "It is forbidden to depict the profit!" The cartoon is the work of Art Spiegelman, who is Jewish. Online, a call goes out for the best anti-Semitic cartoons in the world. The contest is sponsored by a Tel Aviv comic books publishing firm. Only Jews can enter. All the firm's owners are Jewish.
