The Speaker in the supermarket
Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich came to Te-aneck Tuesday. With his wife, Callista, he signed books at the Cedar Mar-ket kosher grocery.Both Gingriches recently published new books: His, “Breakout: Pioneers of the Future, Prison Guards of the Past, and the Epic Battle That Will Decide America’s Fate”; hers, “Yankee Doodle Dandy,” the third installment in her children series about the time-travelling adventures of Ellis the Elephant.The Teaneck signing was one of two New York-area book events for which he had flown up from Virginia.A small group from the Teaneck Jewish community and beyond braved the freezing rain to meet and chat with the 2012 Republican presidential contender.One woman, a Gingrich fan, said she came after having heard the event promoted on the Sean Hannity radio show.The former Georgia congressman took a couple of minutes to talk current events with the Jewish Standard.Regarding Iran: “The Iranian dictatorship is the mortal enemy of the United States and Israel. The only long-term solution frankly is to replace the government.”Regarding the Middle East in general:“It’s been 12 years since 9/11. We have not won. We didn’t win in Iraq. We’re not going to win in Afghanistan. Syria is a disaster. Egypt is a disaster. Libya is a disaster. This is a very serious problem and we have no national debate about how profoundly wrong our policy is.“I think people like Kerry have no idea how big the problem is.”And what about the future, the topic of his new book?“We have to be prepared to do everything we can to relaunch our economy and regain our momentum, because we can’t assume the Middle East is going to be a peaceful, pleasant region. We have to assume we’re faced with 30 to maybe a 100 years of difficulties and think through what’s the strategy if that’s the reality. That’s just a fact,” he said.

The Jewish Standard, the Internet, and a harmonica convergence
●
You read it where?Last week, the Jewish Standard’s cover story was about Harry Feinberg, whose extraordinary life took him from the vaudeville stage, where he was a Harmonica Rascal, to a tank, where he fought in every single one of General Patton’s campaigns.That issue came out on Friday.That day — that very day! — I got an email from Marilyn Glenn, who lives in on a farm in DeWitt County, Illinois, with her husband, Frank.“Today I came across your interesting story on Harry Feinberg,” she wrote. “I was doing some searching for our dear friend, Harold ‘Hal’ Lichtenstein/Leighton, whom Mr. Feinberg also knew and who is mentioned in this story as instrumental in the career of Mr. Feinberg.“We were friends with Mr. Lichtenstein or Leighton as we knew him for over 30 years, having purchased his home in central Illinois…” she continued. “Hal was a fun loving, intelligent and wonderful person to be around and call our friend.”I was very glad to be able to put the Glenns in touch with the Feinbergs.So the magic of Google, and the magic of the Internet, was able to connect and continue stories begun 70 years ago.Whatever else the world may be, it truly is amazing.

Let your iPad say iPrayed
●
Looking for a perfect gift?Want it to reflect your spirituality, connection to prayer, and essential hipness?What about the new, customizable Mishkan T’filah iPad case?About a year ago, the Reform movement released an app for its prayerbook, Mishkan T’filah. Now, according to a press release from the movement’s Central Conference of American Rabbis, “Just as we wrap ourselves in a tallit or wear a kippah to prepare ourselves for the sacred work of prayer, so too can we help transition our iPad from its busy secular life to one which serves a holy purpose.”From the sublime, the press release transitions to the mundane.“This is a water-resistant cover…” it continues, adding, “The vinyl wrap is the same type of vinyl used on race cars…”The inside panel can be customized.If you want to give a gift that is … surprising … you need look no further.

And the chosen are…
Three lucky readers took the prizes in the Jewish Standard Chanukah Giveaway. Ira Shain of River Vale walked away with the wine tote, the Spode Menorah went to Goldie Storman of Harrington Park, and the X-ray cutting board went to someone from Bergenfield who only gave his or her name as “Sendelberg.”
