He is reading a sumptuously printed book of Hebrew scripture with gold-tooled lettering... The central facts of Michael's life are God and loneliness. He is a naturally solemn man who does everything properly. His work for the company is technically superb and largely unappreciated. He jogs, one might say religiously, every day for the sake of his rangy figure. He thinks a lot.

Michael's father is prominent in London Jewish affairs. Through him, Michael's views on the scriptures are gradually gaining a reputation. Michael's reading is thorough and his arguments, rehearsed in open debate, are authoritative. "

Judaism United Kingdom: London 1995 Ryman, Geoff. 253. New York: St. Martin's Press (1998); pg. 92. "Nevertheless, Michael feels continually, completely out of his time. Sage, thoughtful Jews like himself allowed themselves to be herded into camps. New Jews are big, bronzed, crew-cut soldiers... and those are just the women.

But there was now no man to whom AC might give the answer of the last question. No matter. The answer--by demonstration--would take care of that, too.

For another timeless interval, AC [successor to Universal AC/computer and successor to Cosmic AC] thought how best to do this. Carefully, AC organized the program. The consciousness of AC encompassed all of what had once been a Universe and brooded over what was now Chaos. Step by step, it must be done.

And AC said, 'LET THERE BE LIGHT!'

And there was light-- "

'A rabbi,' he said at last. 'Point conceded.' "

WITNESS: May I say to the committee that I object to the characterization of 'Jewish gentleman.'

MR. RANKIN: Do you object to being called a Jew or being called a gentleman? What are you kicking about? "

'Baruch atah adonai Elohenu melech ha olam,' intoned a minyan of old Jews... The old Jews nod and concur in the death.

And the priest draws a cross in blank air and agrees... Thor Bitterbaum woke, remembering his dream. Wondering if it was a dream. Wise men of two world religions warned him in Hebrew and Latin. "

Putnam's Sons (1971; first pub. 1970); pg. 37. "He was Jewish but atypical, being blond, ruddy, with pale eyes and thick noticeable fair eyelashes and eyebrows. He dressed and spoke meticulously: he was sometimes taken for a European. His name was Rolf Stein. They got along well. In two years, their only serious argument had been over his contempt for Jews who anglicized their names. He was forthcoming with examples of inept anglicizations: one branch of his family had exchanged Fleishman for Fleshman. "

Judaism USA 1972 Ellison, Harlan, ed. Again, Dangerous Visions. Garden City, NY: Doubleday (1972); pg. 229. [Introduction to "When It Changed " by Joanna Russ] "I'm not trying to start a fight here, you understand, but like newly-converted Jews or Catholics, like lifetime cigarette smokers who've put down... those of us who've spent the greater part of our lives as male chauvinists get terribly zealous in pointing out the gentlemen in our midst who are still wrong-thinking offenders. "
Judaism USA 1972 Ellison, Harlan, ed. Again, Dangerous Visions. Garden City, NY: Doubleday (1972); pg. 505. [Introduction to "In re Glover " by Leonard Tushnet] [1] "Along with such great unsolved mysteries of he universe as a) Who was Kaspar Hauser? b) What significance did the Easter Island statues originally have? c) Did Pancho Villa really shoot Ambrose Bierce d) What was Jack the Ripper's real identity? and d) How did Erich Segal ever become a popular writer? two things have long puzzled me:

1. Why, though there are numerous sf writers who are Jewish, has there been so little Hebraically-based sf or fantasy? The background is certainly rich enough

2. Why, though it is certainly ripe for being poked fun at, has there been so little memorable humorous sf and fantasy? God knows much of what's written is laughable without intentionally being meant to evoke laughter. "

Judaism USA 1972 Ellison, Harlan, ed. Again, Dangerous Visions. Garden City, NY: Doubleday (1972); pg. 505. [Introduction to "In re Glover " by Leonard Tushnet] [2] "With the exceptions of a few Avram Davidson stories, an extraordinary new novel from Ballantine by Isidore Haiblum titled The Tsaddik of the Seven Wonders, an occasional dybbuk or golem, a marvelous Carol Carr short in Orbit 5 titled 'Look, You Think You've Got Trouble,' some of the early Fredric Brown cavorts, Harry Harrison's Bill, the Galactic Hero, some Sheckley, some Goulart and most of Larry Eisenberg's stuff (remember 'What Happened to August Clarot?' in DV?), there's neither much yiddishe sf or very much funny sf. If it weren't for Isaac Bashevis Singer, where would we be? "
Judaism USA 1972 Ellison, Harlan, ed. Again, Dangerous Visions. Garden City, NY: Doubleday (1972); pg. 505. [Introduction to "In re Glover " by Leonard Tushnet] [3] "Both questions [who so little Jewish SF and why so little humorous SF] are answered, at least temporarily, with Leonard Tushnet.

The mad M.D. from Maplewood, New Jersey--who piously refuses to impart any personal information on himself--here whips off an hilarious vision that includes among its many dangers, the possibility of having one's heart attack oneself, from laughter. With the Vonnegut and the Wilson and the McCullough and the Blish stories, it helps bring things more into balance, proving that we of the sf world are not such humorless bastards as we may seem to the outside world.

(On the other hand, any genre that can contain Asimov, without blushing, can hardly be said to be humorless.)

(Dr. A. indeed!)

And while we have no further specs for the private life of Dr. Tushnet, here are publication vitae... Nonetheless, there is no questioning that the Tushnet terpsichore is a mitzvah. "

"
Judaism USA 1986 Anderson, Jack. Control. New York: Kensington Publishing Corp. (1988); pg. 138. "'You're Jewish, aren't you?' she asked.

'It depends on who you ask. The Nazis would have sent me up the chimney. My mother had me circumcised, and my father had me baptized.' He chuckled quietly. 'I refused to be bar mitzvahed or confirmed, thereby offending both families. My parents are still alive. I'm not exactly their favorite son. Frankly said, I have too much education to swallow either of their religions. I'm guess I'm an atheist.'

She shrugged. 'I understand. Thad and I don't make a point of it, but I suppose we're really atheists, too.'

'Even though,' said Bert, continuing his line of thought,' my father is a devout Presbyterian--'

Anne giggled softly. 'I never heard of anyone being a devout Presbyterian.'

'Even so, the mother of my child refused to marry me because she and her family consider me a Jew,' said Bert. 'So there's a hidden chapter from my personal life.'

His mother had been American, his father a native-born Israeli. He'd grown up on a kibbutz four miles from the Syrian border, and gone to the University in Tel Aviv, majoring in chhemistry... On his 21st birthday he... pledged his allegiance to the United States... and changed his name from Shazer to Weinreb in deference to his grandfather... he was, after all, a refugee? Specifically, a Jewish refugee? No, if anything he wasn't sufficiently a Jewish refugee. Daniel was still young enough to take a romantic view of hardship, and to his way of thinking the Bosolas (as he imagined them) were a much better, more heroic sort than any Weinrebs whatsoever. Then why? "

CLASSIFIED MATERIAL. THE REAL MCCOY WAS EVENTUALLY LOST, AND THE MAGIC DIED OUT. EVER WONDER WHY THE OLD TESTAMENT, FOR INSTANCE, TAKES EFFICACIOUS MAGIC AS A GIVEN? PHARAOH'S MAGICIANS WORKED THE RIGHT STUFF; IT'S JUST THAT MOSES (OR AARON, I GUESS) WAS THE BETTER MAGICIAN. OKAY, BELOVED INFIDEL, MAYBE EXODUS IS MORE FICTION THAN FACT, BUT IT JUST MAY BE THAT THE 'NONFICTION NOVEL' IS OLDER THAN TRUMAN CAPOTE. IN ANY EVENT, THE OLD STUFF WORKS, IF YOU DO IT RIGHT. "

The priest takes a long draught, then offers the rabbi the bottle.

' 'Right after the police get here,' the rabbi says.' Skolnick reddened further as he roared over the punch line, and even in the van there was a current of suppressed laughter. "
