"Our founding American fathers probably could not have predicted that an Asian-American female rabbi would be blessing a Chanukah Menorah in the White House for an African American President. It’s a miraculous country we live in." -Rabbi Angela Buchdahl

SO FUCKING TIRED OF THIS

EVERY WINTER, I SEE THIS HAPPEN!

SEE THIS? THIS ISN’T A DOG, IT’S A CORGI!

NOTE ITS STUPID SMILE, ITS STUBBY LEGS, AND DISTINCTIVE TORSO. ALSO NOTE THAT THIS ONE DOES NOT HAVE A TAIL. MANY CORGIS DO NOT HAVE TAILS.

LOOK AT THIS, THIS IS A DOG!

NOTE THE DIGNIFIED ASPECT, THE TEXTURE OF THE COAT, THE LONG LEGS, AND THE PROUD TAIL.

THESE ARE ALSO DOGS:

DOGS SHOULD NOT BE CONFUSED WITH CORGIS, WHICH HAVE A DIVERSITY OF APPEARANCES AS WELL:

CORGIS ARE MONARCHIST SPY–BEASTS IN LEAGUE WITH THE QUEEN OF ENGLAND.

WHILE DOGS ARE HUMANITY’S CONSTANT FRIEND AND ALLY.

PLEASE SIGNAL BOOST THIS. IT IS ESPECIALLY IMPORTANT FOR PEOPLE TO KNOW THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CORGIS AND DOGS AT THIS TIME OF YEAR. DOGS WILL FOLLOW US TO SPACE, CORGIS WILL FOLLOW US AND REPORT BACK TO THE QUEEN OF ENGLAND. I AM SICK OF THIS GOYISH IGNORANCE! CORGIS AND DOGS HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH ONE ANOTHER!

A sufganiyah is a round jelly doughnut eaten in Israel and around the world on the Jewish festival of Hanukkah. The doughnut is deep-fried, filled with jelly or custard, and then topped with powdered sugar. At Hanukkah, Jewish people observe the custom of eating fried foods in commemoration of the miracle associated with the Temple oil.

Normally, I hate to stick my head in the lion’s mouth, but I feel like it’s worth considering something.  Only .459% of people in the UK are Jewish.  Unlike the US, where 1 in 50 people are Jewish, in the UK, it’s about 1 in 218.

It’s unclear what the size of Hogwarts is.  Harry has five boys in his room.  Assuming that’s an ordinary level, Hogwarts has about 10 students per house per year, which would mean something in the neighborhood of 280 students.  Since Gryffindors take classes with Slytherins and Hufflepuffs, maybe 10 per house per year isn’t a far off number.  On the other hand, the Gryffindors seem to take Transfiguration on their own.  That might suggest that they have larger groups.  If one assumes 25 students per house per year, that would mean a school size of roughly 700.

Bearing these numbers in mind, is it that surprising that the school might have only 1-4 Jewish students?
