Not that kind of Rov.


  1. Never More!

  2. I will admit to being disappointed that I couldn't find this poem using Google--I was hoping to see the rest.

    Loved the footnote! Yes, the crow-family.

    And also loved that he changed the name of the lost lady from Lenore to Lenehr, or whatever. Poe was a Galicianer or something.

    LFD, the Simpsons' Raven TOTALLY needs to be dubbed into Yiddish. You have till Purim!

    1. You know, I'v e heard Collin Powell had some Jewish connections, but never James earl Jones! :-) I have to say that one of the "guilty pleasures" I get from being a special ed public school teacher is celebrating Halloween. I do so by playing Tree house of Horror Simpsons episodes from October 15-31. I often take pictures of my students glued to the screen and send them to people with the caption "your tax dollars hard at work"

  3. And this has nothing to do with the Raven, but it's dark and dubbed into Yiddish:


  4. Q: Who were Poe's favorite Chasidim?
    A: The Belz, the Belz

  5. While we're waiting for the Yiddishe Simpsons' Raven, the German version will have to do. At least it has the full animation:

  6. Ah, I should have posted the whole thing. JXG, I will post the rest later.

    As for the Simpsons version, for awhile the mental image of Bart saying "Nevermore" was a hilarious synonym for "annoying" to me.

  7. Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered weak and weary,
    Over many an online hebrewbooks volume of forgotten lore,
    While I nodded, trying to stay up, suddenly there came a popup,
    vying for my inattentive kup, promising not to bore.
    `'Tis not a virus,' I muttered, `wondering what it's for-
    Only this, and nothing more.'

    Presently my soul grew stronger; hesitating then no longer,
    `Google,' said I, `or IE, truly your forgiveness I implore;
    But the fact is I was learning, and so gently you came whirling,
    And so faintly you came hurling, redirecting me to bloggers store,
    That I scarce was sure I saw you' - here I clicked-could not ignore; -
    Darkness then, and nothing more!

    Deep into that black screen peering, long I sat there wondering, fearing,
    Doubting, feeling fears no mortal ever dared to feel before;
    Cuz now my PC was broken, and the darkness gave no token,
    Now I was fully woken, How would I learn for evermore?
    This I whispered, and an echo murmured back the words, Al Gore!
    Merely this and nothing more.

    Then I recalled that Al had created, the superhighway and even paved it,
    With routers and relays for my information to flow o'er;
    While jetting the world, using fuel, he made me feel like a fool
    for using electricity for my tool - instead of having saved it.
    These thoughts crossed my mind as I set my computer on the floor.
    You shall be revived! and serve once more!
    Now that I had time to waken, I tried a path that few had taken
    The road less travelled seemed to beckon, my spirit began to soar
    For I remembered Rabbi Reisman, lecturing as a Technical Wise-man
    Flash drive booting is an option, when your computer works no more
    Quick as a flash I ubuntued it, and it began to purr.
    Hebrewbooks shall rule once more!

    And until this day I'm sitting, e-learning which is fitting.
    For a generation that is glued to gadgets and the itunes store.
    but on occasion, when I'm weak, I'll even sneak a little peak
    At the best blogs of the week, posted by Rafi - just can't ignore
    OnTheMainLine ranks up there, with the best there ever were
    All must thank VP Al Gore.

  8. Best. Comment. Ever.

  9. Sorry, forgot to post it last night.

    Here it is.

  10. I blew the dust off of my Bais Yehuda, Parshas Noach, curious as to how they "teitched" this obscure bird.

    For the posuk, it says "Un er hut geshikked dem rub". But for Rashi, it says "Di kruh is gegangen arum di taiva"

  11. I don't even know how I ended up here, but I thought this post was good. I do not know who you are but certainly you'гe gοing
