There is the old non-PC joke about Helen Keller. She is invited to her first Seder. Her hosts see her, mid-Hagadah, rubbing her matzo with a confused expression on her face. The host asked:"Helen, what's wrong?" Ms. Keller replied: "Who writes this s__t?" I was reminded of the joke and the question by the following pre-Chag "gift" from JFNA:
On March 24, JFNA circulated something called a Mandel Minute. In a remarkable few sentences, they gave me chills with the most brilliant segue I have ever read:
"The four questions at the beginning of the seder set in motion the retelling of the Passover story and emphasize the value of asking the right questions to elicit the most important information.
How can we insure that we ask the right questions when interviewing a candidate?"
This is the winner of the Wexler First Annual Helen Keller "who writes this s__" Award. There is no second place.
