I will focus on Eating Challenges rather than contests with the exception of a few contests that I feel an importance to , such as the Go Go Curry, which I will try to be at the finals in person to report back to the Lerman Report for publication on this site. If anyone wants to have their challenges or their contests wins published , send pictures and a brief Story about them to Donmoseslerman@gmail.com and we will put them up..Thank you Don Lerman , Blog Administrator
If Cigarettes are so bad for us why don’t they just ban the sale, importation and growing of all tabbacco products period ? Smokers have been reduce to pariahs in the workplace in restaurants all over . If your in restaurant and light up , they can throw you out and call a cop, but if you sit there and break wind , they can’t do a thing to you.. how unfair. In the workplace smokers are going out for smoke every half hour , look at the loss in productivity .Nobody quits for the price of cigaretes , In third world nations like the Philippines ,Bangkok and West Africa where people don’t have a pot to piss in , they are willing and do pay $20 a pack for American Brand cigarettes .So the Government kows that in a relatively healthy American Economy we’ll pay $10 a pack most willing .Its an addiction harder to stop than Heroin. The first thing the U.S. should do is no more subsidizing the growing of tobacco . followed total ban in 3 years with Tough measure for illegal import and sales to include Rockefeller type drug laws to be enacted for the sale distributive , importation and growing of all tobacco products. It should be a bipartition effort and a National Lottery should be put forth to replace the loss in tax revenue. end

You don’t hear to much or anything in the Americam Press these days about the Druze. Whats their status in the negotiations visa vie the Palestinians? A group who prefer to be called Druze rather than Muslims , is actually an off shoot of Islam in the same way the Mormons Usually refer to to themselves as Mormons than Christians. They served in the Jewish states war of Independence along side of their Jewish counterparts and continue to serve and are draftees in the Israeli Army today. They maintain there own courts in many matters ,and more than a bone so to speak should been thrown to them when Israel was in Lebanon, a state or some sort or autonomous region should have been pushed for …not to late

I’ve noticed that in the last 15 years there were new group of barbers, that spoke Russian , looked middle eastern and closed their shop on Rosh Hashana. They are Jewish barbers from the former soviet union , from countries such as Azerbaijan, Bokhara.They have technique that’s about the best I”V seen in my 63 yrs.. even the discount barber shops their skill is unbelievable, the best haircut around.I personally go to one in my neighborhood & joke around and ask for ”Jewish Style” and I get my haircut ( every 2 weeks ) If they here
where were they when I was growing up, I suspect that in the late sixties we may not have a Hippy era and revolt on getting haircuts.end

Isreal is the only nation that has to answer to the world body as where it can have its capital. and where or where or where not it can build houses . Its Prime Minister is called on the carpet at the White House and read the riot act. Even if Israel went along with every Arab conditions it wouldn’t be enough, Nothing is going to make the Antisemites like Israel and Jews , But By standing firm they may gain respect if not love for Israel , There isnt a European Nation that wants to see a nuclear device in MuslIm hands yet no one will support Israel when they voice their fears for an Islamic Bomb, Israel must not bend from world pressure , they don’t give crap for Jews to begin with. this pressure e on Israel is reviving old blood libel type hatred. at this very moment in time the Palestinian authority along with the other 22 Arab nations are teaching Nazi type propaganda in their U.N. Funded schools.The Jewish State must do whats in their interest first and last and always.end
I Often hear from Christians on the subject of the afterlife, While theirs is a consept of Heaven, However by Jews it is not, Its reincarnation. Rabbis of today skip the old fashioned Judaism of of yesteryear and say ”we don’t know what exactly the afterlife is” That’s not so please don’t play putsavota with your congregation and fellow Jews. Its called Reincarnation or as its called referred to in in that Book of Creation or The Sefer Yitsera there is a chapter in that particular book known as “Otz Chaim “(sic) or The Tree of life. In there it speaks of it in 2 terms
1.Gilagul Hanefesh( sic ) soul-trans migration or…
2.Radshesh Ha Gilagulim, (sic) revolution or schemes of souls…
in which a soul is returned to life based on ones past lifes behavier just as it is prescribed in the Book Of Life on Jewish New years. A Rich man who never never gives to charity , comes back as a poor beggar a Poor Man good of heart comes back as a Rich Man… in other words your behavior in your past life shapes your present one and your behavior in the present reflects on your future one and you keep on doing this reincarnation until you become a pillar in the Temple of the Lord other words a perfect person.
East European Jews Name after the dead to help bring the soul Back into earth this is called Redemption upon inheritance (Book of Ruth). this is standard teaching Of amoung Karaites and Chasidium. When I was growing up (I was born in 1949) this was standard teaching taught in each and every Jewish home..
