The Catmage Chronicles
It's been hundreds of years since the Darkness last surfaced, a grim time when both humans and Catmages lost their lives. But now the Wild Ones work with humans again, and thirteen-year-old Andy Cohen gets the surprise of his life when a talking cat shows up in his front yard. Goldeneyes, a powerful Catmage, needs Andy’s help. In the exciting first installment of this new series, Meryl Yourish takes the reader into a world of magical cats, dark powers, and a boy who finds himself entangled in their war.

An icon speaks: Abe Foxman has an in-depth interview in the Tablet magazine. Read it all. Here’s just a taste about why so many media outlets focus on Jews: Number two is, I would say, “Jews are news.” So, we … Continue reading
It’s completely irreverent, and perfectly timed for Yom Kippur. From the Algemeiner, which wouldn’t let me get the embed code.
YOU can’t come to MY party: Meet the new boss, same as the old boss. Everyone is invited to the new Iranian president’s inauguration except for the U.S. and, of course, the “Zionist entity”. That’s okay. There’s not going to … Continue reading
Saw the Tony Awards tonight. American theater isn’t dead, but it’s definitely in decline. The only pleasant surprise was the number from the musical of “A Christmas Story” (yes, the one with Ralphie and the gun). But I wasn’t very … Continue reading
