Hummus milkshakes are the newest blight on the ever-changing landscape of Jewish food. Everywhere I turn, new horrors lurk, and new opportunities to make trendy, inedible abominations out of what was once a tasteful, carefully plated delight.
Matt Taibbi once called the Internet “an escapist paradise for the emotionally overwhelmed.” I like to to think of it as that, and simultaneously as a dystopian hideaway where people can choose to be informationally overwhelmed. But however we like to think of the Internet, one thing stands out.

I just got back from a Shabbos spent in Monsey, New York, the first time I spent a Shabbos there in many years. When I got there in the afternoon, I davened at the Vizhnitz shtiebel (little shul), 2 houses down, because my hosts were still at the Yeshiva and I wasn’t sure where I was going. I was the only married man there without a serious shtreimel: those round, fur trimmed hats that mark a man as an out and proud Hasidic Jew. Nothing says “Jew” quite like a shtreimel does.
