I like to think this would not have happened at Penn

From the front page of today’s Yale Daily News [see for yourself here, or if you don’t like squinting, read on]:

What a tease! Though a key part of Yom Kippur is fasting, the menu in the residential dining halls includes a number of traditionally Israeli dishes, such as Matzoh Ball Soup…

I like to imagine the paper’s Israeli Jewish staff took the night off.


[Post-publication edit to reflect that this totally would have happened at Penn.]

      1. To actually respond to your point, Yes. That said, there were two issues here: the conflation of ‘Jewish’ with ‘Israeli’ and the suggestion that matza ball soup is Israeli. Including the couscous might have distracted people from the second point, because ‘lemon-mint Israeli couscous’ is, by definition Israeli – whatever it is.
