Jewish Humor On Your Desktop
Jewish Humor on Your Desktop is a series of interactive eBooks that bring hundreds of funny Jewish videos and anecdotes to your favorite screen -- desktop or laptop computer, Kindle, iPad, iPhone, Android phone or tablet Each video is introduced with a short written commentary explaining its back story. The videos are based on three years and 900 entries from Jewish Humor Central, a blog written by Al Kustanowitz, who has been studying, chronicling, and delivering Jewish humor for more than 30 years. This is the second book in the series, titled Israel is a Funny Country. This book explores the multifaceted nature of humor in Israel, some of which is intentional and some of which is unintentional. Either way, the quirks of Israeli life contribute to making that life interesting and fulfilling. In the pages of this volume, we take a look at humorous slices of Israeli life, funny TV commercials, unusual stories about food, surprising rabbinic bans on daily activities, simchas as they can only be celebrated in Israel, endearing aspects of Israeli culture, a look at the growing phenomenon of flash mobs, and a glimpse of a few unusual Israeli sports. There are 85 anecdotes in all, most of which are linked to a short video clip, adding up to more than three hours of video. We hope that these anecdotes and associated video clips give you a new and different insight into life in Israel, and encourage you to join in the fun by planning a visit to the land flowing with milk and honey.
A Desktop Guide For Nonprofit Directors, Officers, And Advisors
How to keep any nonprofit out of trouble, running smoothly, and accomplishing its mission
"Jack Siegel--lawyer, accountant, management consultant, and computer whiz--takes the putative director or officer of a nonprofit organization on a useful and often entertaining voyage throughout the realm of the tax-exempt organizations universe, pointing out its quirks, foibles, and legal liabilities along the way. His handbook will make mandatory--and arresting--reading for those who are already serving as trustees, directors, officers, and key employees of exempt organizations, particularly charitable ones. Siegel's goal, in which he succeeds, is to help directors and officers of nonprofit organizations 'make better decisions.' The book is full of large policy analyses and paragraphs on the details, such as board size, board committees, board meeting formats, the contents of minutes, and the duties of officers.
Salted with some excellent real-life examples, what also sets this book apart from most in its genre is the tone: the writing style, the brusqueness, the bluntness. He complains that too many directors 'check their good judgment at the boardroom door.' He advises individuals who 'desire agreement and demand adulation' to stay off boards; he insists on 'commitment' and 'institutional tension' with the executive director. He warns prospective directors that some organizations want, in addition to time and judgment, 'either your money or your ability to raise money.' To my delight, he extols the virtues of 'some level of expenditures' for qualified lawyers and accountants.
Please join me in adding this most helpful handbook to your nonprofit library."
