  •  Corinna daF-W's lovelife: re Wagner antisemitism (4+ / 0-)

    3C, I don't think you could make this up. I don't even think a Verdi librettist could have made it up. And it would drive Wagner bonkers. Which is a good thing in my book.

    Corinna's can't make it up musical religious lovelife lost

      ......Reform.  It would seem an obvious question, but one never knows, especially someone like me.

        ...though. Tractatus google knows, but I am too busy trying to figure out if I try Don Carlos live or not from the comments and further research.

        Happy you got a Wagnerian happy ending to your Diary. I was afraid that your five hours this Sat. would be next Sat.'s loser's club story.

    •  Heh heh... (4+ / 0-)

      When she talks about "the grip" that the Orthodox have on immigration, what she means is that for purely political reasons, the Orthodox have managed to make themselves the final arbiter of what constitutes a converted Jew or not.  So if you convert to Judaism in the US as Conservative or Reform, you're a Jew to everybody else in the world, but not to the Orthodox Jews at Israel immigration.

      Curiously enough, this rule would seem to have the effect of keeping their voting numbers from being swamped with non-Orthodox.  Couldn't be a connection, do you think?  It couldn't be like a Ken Blackwell Ohio voting type thing, could it?  Naw...

      •  Interesting, my reply is perhaps not... (2+ / 0-)

        thanks for your interest.
