Sarah Silverman and Shimon Peres! Or not.


I followed Sarah Silverman around from club to club some time in 1990, Before She Was Famous. She was pretty funny then.

I’ve followed Shimon Peres around from press conference to press conference since around the same time, Long After He Was Famous. He’s pretty funny too.

So I was excited when I heard they were getting together to discuss Jewish identity, at least virtually, through Peres’ Israel Presidential Conference.

She was taking answers on a Facebook page, said the invitation in my inbox from the Presidential Conference. The topic was Jewish identity and it was entitled: "The young generation and an ancient tradition."

Unfortunately, the page is no longer live
