Just when you thought you have seen it all! A new reality television show is emerging which is seemingly very tongue in cheek concerning Judaism and interfaith-interracial marriage. I'm unsure as to how most orthodox Jews will appreciate the way Judaism is portrayed here. Overall it seems more of a comedy skit so I don't know if anyone would take any part of it all that seriously. Lifetime channel portrays the show as such:
The adage says opposites attract…and in the case of Lifetime’s all-new docu-sitcom "Kosher Soul" (#KosherSoul), which follows the lives of Los Angeles stylist Miriam Sternoff, who is Jewish, and her fiancé, southern and African-American comedian O’Neal McKnight, they do. Premiering Wednesday, February 25, at 10p ET/PT, divergent worlds will clash as Miriam and O’Neal’s friends and family prepare for the couple’s nuptials, including O’Neal’s conversion to Judaism and their future as husband and wife.
Despite doubts and concerns from their loved ones, recently engaged Miriam and O’Neal are preparing to marry and begin their lives in a Jewish home. Madly in love, O’Neal is ready to prove his dedication to Miriam by converting to Judaism in order to be accepted by her mother, Nancy, who wants her future grandchildren to be raised Jewish. At the same time, Miriam is trying to blend O’Neal’s southern upbringing and traditions into her life. What results is a hilarious and touching peek into the love and affection between two soul mates whose deep and emotional connection overcomes cultural barriers.
"Kosher Soul" is produced by Ish Entertainment and the executive producers are Michael Hirschorn ("The Approval Matrix"), Melissa Cooper ("Styled By June"), Wendy Roth ("Wife Swap") and Rasheed J. Daniel ("Blood, Sweat and Heels"). Lifetime’s Eli Lehrer, Mary Donahue and Mariana Flynn are also executive producers. Twelve half-hour episodes of Kosher Soul have been ordered for this season.
Well Adar is right around so I figured I'd share one of my all time favorite Purim themed music videos featuring Yitzy Spinner and Lipa with Sympinny orchestras.The zemiros choir is especially tight on this recording and does a great job! I love the orchestration and vocals on this performance. Enjoy and feel free to share!
According to the latest news, Costco will be ending it's 16 yr old relationship with AMEX as of March 16 2016. That could mean that True Earning checks may be a thing of the past. This has many people wondering what the future holds regarding the retailer accepting any credit cards at all. Costco may start accepting a Capital One Mastercard as it is currently offers in Canada but that remains to be seen.
