A Jewish event #planner hankers for Chanukah to last an entire year so she can throw lots of festive #parties. And it does…
by Stephanie D. Lewis “You are #traveling through another #dimension, a dimension not only of #sight and #sound but of (#delicious) #smells and (#boastful) kvells. A #journey into a #neurotic land whose #boundaries are not limited by schlepping or shmoozing. That’s the #signpost up ahead (Can you see it #hung at a #slant in the right-hand side of the upper 1/3 of the doorframe?) Your next stop . . . The ChaiLight Zone!” Maybe you’ve heard that several Rabbis have #jumped on board a project to update and revamp The #TwilightZone with a Jewish theme. Actually you probably haven’t heard this since I just made it up right #now. But here are a few more introductions to some new episodes whose plots might seem vaguely familiar to you.
Cue “Rod Shpieling’s” distinctive voice for his #typical narrated opening:
The One Where #Rumors Fly “Submitted for your approval: The case of one Dr. Jeffrey Greenberg, a big macher surgeon who likes to #gossip about his patients, until today when he’s ordered to operate on a #pillow and remove all its fluffy down feathers. Scalpel still in hand, he watches as the sterile room suddenly fills with thousands of fuzzy plumes swirling in all directions, many drifting into the hospital corridor and out through the open #windows. One quill even manages to land inside a patient’s #open chest cavity just before getting stitched up after quadruple bypass surgery. Oy vey. In just a moment you’ll meet the #ProphetElijah who advises the good doctor to attempt to retrieve every single solitary last feather. A #grim prognosis and an impossible antidote? Perhaps. But just one of the many #lessons to be #learned in . . . The ChaiLight Zone.
