Guides and charts

Rosh Hashanah guide for the perplexed, 2015

?לך אל נמלה עצל: איזה מסר עלינו ללמוד

Like a Monty Python skit gone tragic, the New York Times actually ran a chart in its newspaper and online labeling Democratic lawmakers against the Obama administration's controversial nuclear deal with Iran as "Jewish?" or not (the "Jewish?" part was removed from the online version after outcry). - See more at: http://newsbusters.org/blogs/nb/clay-waters/2015/09/10/too-jewish-offensive-nyt-chart-flags-democratic-lawmakers-jewish-or#sthash.YN3Bq3Kb.dpuf 

The NewsBusters article makes reference to a twitchy page which contains twitter comments about the chart.
Lee Doren asks, "Has the New York Times ever done something analogous with e.g. Black, Latino, Asian, etc. Congressmen? Just Jews?"

After one individual posted, "Weird that the NYT decided to sort its list of Iran deal opponents by putting the minority of Jews on top, rather than going alphabetically," someone responded, "It makes them easier to separate on the train platform."
