• In the battle between two brothers to become the next chief Sephardi rabbi of Jerusalem, one issue has emerged as particularly critical: which prayer should be recited before eating Bamba, a sort of peanut butter-flavored Cheetos-like snack popular in Israel. [JPost]
• “I don’t mean to offend any Christian person,” says Harold Ramis of his new film Year One, “I only mean to offend Jewish people, who I trust completely because I’m Jewish.” [AMC]
Trevelujah, a networking site for Christians looking to travel to Israel, is run by a Jew. [JPost]
