But where is their evidence? They never answer that question.

Let’s be honest and blunt.

A, They do not really care about evidence. They care about getting rid of Trump and saw anything to accomplish that, without any interest in the facts. 2) #TheirMeansJustifyTheirEnds

B. Or, one must look at something else. They are a repeat of the Ghetto Jewish leaders who believed that Jews asserting their rights and dignity would lead to anti-Semitism and tragedy. 3) #GhettoJews #Antisemitism #fearful #JewsWithTremblingKnees

This is a thread about Jewish eateries on the #LowerEastSide of Manhattan: #KatzsDelicatessen, #YonahSchimmelKnishery, and #RussandDaughtersAppetizers.

So, of course, it is also a thread about #immigration.
@KatzsDeli, 205 E. Houston St. Already famed for pastrami, Katz's was immortalized in #WhenHarryMetSally, and yesterday held a fake orgasm contest. Opened by others in 1888; Willy Katz became part owner in 1903, cousin Benny Katz joined 1910, and it's been Katz's ever since. #LES
@YonahSchimmelNY, 137 E. Houston St. Yonah Schimmel, a Romanian rabbi, operated a pushcart at Coney Island starting in 1895, and opened his shop in its present location in 1910. The best potato knish anywhere. Don't @ me. #LES

The menōrah is a characteristic symbol of #Judaism. The six-branched lamp stand with a seventh central lamp was reportedly already present when the Israelites crossed into Samaria (#Canaan) and pitched their tabernacle tent in the town of Shiloh during the late 2nd millennium BC.
The #Hebrew name menōrah is related to the word נור (nōr), meaning light, made feminine (by means of the post-fixed ה) and prefixed with the particle מ, which denotes a noun of place. It literally means lamps-stand and is closely connected to the #Arabic word منار (manār).
In Exodus 25:31-32, God reveals the design of the menōrah to Moses: "Make a lamp stand of pure gold. (...) Six branches are to extend from the sides of the lamp stand; three on one side and three on the other." It was to light the tabernacle tent and the Temple of Jerusalem.
