A Little Treyf In Your Chanukah Stocking?

Only in Savannah, peeps. Betcha anything it came from the Piggly Wiggly on Skidaway.

Update: So this didn’t happen in South after all, folks, but New Yawk Freakin’ City, posted by Nancy Kay Shapiro on her blog. Manhattan, for f*ck’s sake, which if I’m not mistaken is the unofficial land of the Jews, at one of those upscale yuppie markets that sell $12 jars of wasabi peanuts and imported cheeses. Armaggedon could be closer than I thought.

  1. This made me laugh out loud- thanks Yo.

    Leave it to Savannah- it has been many years but I have been to that Piggly Wiggly on Skidaway and you must be right. When I was there I was sure it was a time capsule back to another era.

  2. Thanks for the birthday wishes Yo! Thank goodness for email and texting or I would be going insane. Please tell your funny El Yenta Man that I will text him soon. You should ask him why he thinks that I have lost my voice… he is TOO MUCH!
    Love to you all-

  3. I moved to Fort Bragg, Ca., on the Mendocino coast in 1972. My very first Passover there I went to the Safeway for groceries and they had a special on Challahs for Passover in the bakery section.

  4. I think you need to apologize for assuming that that a stupid thing like Ham for Hannukah (sounds like a name for a Jewish Punk rock band)could only happen in the South and impossible in a place like NYC. I grew up in a smaller Jewish community in the South and assumed things would be better when I moved to New York. Not hardly. Down here things happen because of ignorance. In big communities it is just plain stupidity.

  5. I understand. I once thought that it would be easier if I had grown up in a larger Jewish community instead of struggling to maintain a Jewish identity in the “sticks.” When I moved to NYC and went to NYU and Brooklyn College, I learned, as you said, that things are the same in too many ways.
