Menorahty – Wednesday’s Wordapod
Wednesday’s Wordapod Created by Matthew J. Goldberg, author of Wordapodia, Volume One: An Encyclopedia of Real Fake Words
Sometimes, there’s strength in numbers, yet there’s also comfort in being part of a menorahty.
As I spun my little dreidel and lit my miniature Hannukiah, I looked over at the immense Christmas tree and felt every bit like a small menorahty.
So, Who Knew…?
Per www.jewishvirtuallibrary.org, (2006 data), American Jews are a distinct menorahty—and not only around the December holidays. Jews comprise only 2.2% of the U.S. population; which ranges from 0.1% in several states (including West Virginia, South Dakota and Idaho) to 5.5% in New York State.
While this website doesn’t say so, it is believed that even in Idaho, 83% of all stand-up comedians, doctors and lawyers are Jewish. Not sure exactly how that works, though.
Wordapods were created by Matthew J. (call him Matt) Goldberg in his book, Wordapodia, Volume One: An Encyclopedia of Real Fake Words. Check this site for a new Wordapod every Wednesday.
