Knish Knosh
  Knish Knosh is the name of a Knish store in Forest Hills where I lived for a while. It is a play on the word nosh, which is Yiddish for snack. They put a "K" in front of it to make it match Knish. Pretty clever, no?

A knish is like a perogi on acid. First of all it is about 3 or 4 times the size. It also has a thick crust that is probably baked and fried. The potato inside probably has a bit of onion or something in it because it has more taste than a perogi. The crust is also kind of flakey. Sometimes they put mushrooms, spinach, kasha, and other things in it...which they pretty much do with perogis too. In NYC they sell knishes on the street along with hot dogs. There are square ones and round ones. They taste different. In Canarsie, where I grew up, there was a guy who only sold knishes in the street. His name was "Ruby the Knishman"! He was perhaps the most famous person in southern Brooklyn...at least famous among Brooklynites. Someone put up a tribute site to him that you can find on the web.

I just want to state for the record that it is fine for people to question Israel or even attack Israel on this guestbook. This is a post of freedom on the internet. Anyone can talk about anything. The only thing I do not allow is threats against individuals. Not that anyone here would attack Israel, but I know people hear all kinds of stuff and it is good for folks to be able to air what they hear and discuss things. After all, what better thing is there to discuss than Israel while having a good mushroom and onion knish with mustard!

I would imagine, for instance, that in Vermont, which is a bastion of "liberal" thinking, that NPR is considered an authority on "All Things" (as in their show, "All Things Considered"). I would bet that Vermonters do not get to hear a pro-Zionist point of view very often. So, some of what has been said here may seem surprising or even disturbing. But that is what communication is all about. It says in the Talmud, "One who does not ask questions does not learn". How true is that? (You see, there I go asking a question!)

Why does a Jew always answer a question with a question?

Why not?
