But you’ll have to wait until after Shabbat for a thoughtful post on that issue. Suffice it to say it’s been a trip. Thanks for putting up with us. Shabbat Shalom…

About the author


Founder and Publisher of Jewlicious, David Abitbol lives in Jerusalem with his wife, newborn daughter and toddler son. Blogging as "ck" he's been blocked on twitter by the right and the left, so he's doing something right.


  • Congrats David and the rest of the crew at Jewlicious. I can call you David instead of that silly ck, right? I just wanted to thank you for all the work you have put into Jewlicious. I comment infrequently but read Jewlicious every day. Jewlicious has enriched my life immeasurably. I went on birthright because of Jewlicious, I light Sabbath candles because of Jewlicious, I engage my Judaism more actively because of Jewlicious, I while away many hours daydreaming about… well, let’s just say Jewlicious moves me in many different ways. Thanks for allowing me to see how interesting, relevant and sexy Judaism can be, thanks for rekindling my love affair with Israel, just thanks. You guys and gals rock. Whatever koolaid you and the crew are drinking, please PLEASE pass it on to the rest of the Jewish world! I love you guys, and I especially love you David.

  • 3000 posts! It may be time to retire.

    (You straddled that line between sarcasm and truth a little too well, M_, and that leaves your meaning unclear. That comment ends up being a little creepy.)

  • i watched Shindler’s List again yesterday, and really, i couldnt help but realize a billion things that are so similar to what the Jews have done to the Palestinians. It’s sad how the victims are now victimizers.

    How did we become like this? Occupation and this apartheid makes us evil. We could be living side by side.

    Here’s hoping your blog changes for the better. You can start with a new layout template.

  • When you say “we,” you mean to say you and your little stuffed animals?

    Boy, get a job, leave the parents’ basement and try to find a girlfriend – the zits won’t be there forever – and life will get better. It will. Really.

  • by “we” i mean every good and smart jew and every dumb, ignorant, narrow-minded, overweight, mouthbreating, and less attractive jew.

    I consider myself lucky to post here. Thanks, guys.

  • You’re an Arab Muslm terrorist supporter. You’re not fooling anyone here. Actually it’s the Arabs, Palestinians don’t exist, that are the Nazis victimizing the Jews. End the Arab occupation of Jewish lands! End the Arab terrorism against the Jewish people!

  • I actually meant to write “Palestiniansareamyth.” Of course Arabs are real but we all know that the “Palestinian people” are a myth created by the Plo.

  • Now now, lets try, just try to keep things civil here. During the three weeks between 17 of tammuz and 9th of av, Jews have to be ery cognizant of how we treat other Jews.

    It’s easy to treat people you like with respect, its much harder to treat people you don’t like or disagree with with respect.

  • Apartheid, you’re not fooling anybody with this “we” crap.

    Jews, being intelligent, cultured, and well-educated, know how to spell and compose coherent and grammatical sentences.

    Since you can do neither, it is obvious that you are not one of us.

  • How was my comment creepy? I don’t want anyone to retire! Jewlicious has been an important part of my daily life for a long time. I’ve watched it grow and evolve and Jewlicious just seems to be getting better every day. Even your posts the middle are getting better. I see old writers gone, like Michael and Laya and Esther hasn’t written in a while, but the new writers are fun and the remaining writers keep on keeping on, so why retire? And tell me again why I am creepy?
