  • Alan Dershowitz sends ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’ episode to Netanyahu

    Comedian Larry David has been called a lot of things over the course of his long and successful career, but we’re pretty sure “peace maker” has never been one of them. Until now.

  • 10 TV Jewish couples we love

    There aren’t that many Jewish couples out there. On television, that is.
    Sure, there are plenty of mixed marriages, as there are in real life, but the small screen doesn’t usually feature a couple where both members are Jews.
    But we were able to come up with 10 of our favorites in honor of Valentine’s Day after racking our pop culture-loving brains (and searching the internet).
    Here they are:
    1. The “retired and moved to Boca” couple – Helen and Mordy Seinfeld (“Seinfeld”)

    They love each other but fight all time. They wonder why you never call them (or Uncle Leo) and invite themselves over. Mordy (Barney Martin) always complains and yells about everything he doesn’t like, and Helen (Liz Sharidan) yells back at him but always has his back. The Seinfelds are the thick-skinned, proud and caring couple who somehow get along in a faraway land called Florida. More ▸

  • Yes, Larry David tattoos exist, and yes, they are ridiculous

    You know how you decide to take an inspiring quote, or a symbol that is meaningful to you, or just a nice tribal decoration and tattoo it on your body? Yes? No?

  • Who are the Jewish celebrities voting for?

    The election season is almost over, thankfully, but before the we all find out who is the next POTUS, we thought it would be interesting to look at the political preferences of some famous Jews. Some of the Jewish celebrities are very outspoken regarding their opinions, some are more quiet and most of them donate a lot of money.
    Check out the list, who knows, maybe it will change how you will vote (I really hope it won’t though):
    Republican Jewish Celebrities:
    Jerry Bruckheimer

  • Larry David looks like a hippie Moses on the set of his new HBO movie

    New photos from the set of “Clear History,” the upcoming HBO film by Larry David, finally answers the question no one has ever asked – how David will look if he never shaved. Nevertheless, this hippie-Moses (or Gandalf, for the fantasy people) look looks promising, as well as the movie plot. David co-wrote “Clear History”… More ▸

  • ‘Homeland’ completely dominates the Emmys

    Last night’s 64th Primetime Emmy Awards revealed a new reality – the American viewer would much rather be scared by potential terrorists than sexist advertising agencies – as television show “Homeland” grabbed six Emmys and denounced “Mad Men” as the top drama on TV. “Homeland” had a pretty impressive Emmy run, including Outstanding Drama, best… More ▸

  • Jerry Seinfeld’s new web series ‘Comedians in a Car Getting Coffee’ is about, well, comedians in a car getting coffee
