SHLOMOH SHERMAN'S PERSONAL WEBSITE

This is a Smoke Free Website!     Tobacco kills!   If you must smoke, smoke a joint!



I'm currently retired. In my working life, I have held many jobs. I am now a non-working actor and stand up comic. I have been a computer programmer and a web designer, among other things.

You know, my name wasn't always Shlomoh. I used to have a regular name, like you, Stanley. But I changed it to Shlomoh for show business reasons.

I tell people that my name is spelled with a silent H at the end. Silent letters! What genius thought of that concept? Imagine a guy who has a name with all silent letters! Hey you! What's your name? He just stands there with his mouth hanging open.

I had the negative distinction of being born on April 20. That, for your information, is Hitler's birthday.
Imagine! I was a young lad during World War 2, and all the kids at school made fun of me about Hitler's birthday. Even my family made fun of me about it. My parents would make a birthday party for me and instead of handing out little party hats to the children, they'd hand out little moustaches.

By now you already figured out that I'm a Jew. What else could I be? Just look at my face!
By the way; you know that little piece they cut off me when I was a baby? I still have that. My family had it bronzed. It was their way of making up for the little moustaches.


SHLOMOH WITH A SILENT FINAL H. The final H is silent but he never is. Shlomoh Sherman is a displaced New York Jew who likes to make people laugh. People have said that he is the most Jewish Jew and the most New Yorkiest New Yorker they have ever met. He is currently retired. In his working life, he has held many jobs. He is now a some time actor and stand up comic. His ex-wife used to call him the Orthodox Jewish Howard Stern. Shlomoh says he is a Jew's Jew and what else could he be? He likes to talk about his life. and about the world that Jews have to live in. What a funny place THAT is!!!!

Passover

Passover [Hebrew, Yiddish: PESACH,] is a Jewish and Samaritan holy day and festival commemorating the Hebrews' escape from enslavement in Egypt.
Passover begins on the 14th day of the month of NISAN (equivalent to March and April in Gregorian calendar), the first month of the Hebrew calendar's festival year according to the Hebrew Bible. The 14th day of the month of NISAN corresponds to the full moon of NISAN, the first month of the Hebrew calendar, in accordance with the Hebrew Bible. Passover is a spring festival, so the 14th day of NISAN begins on the night of a full moon after the vernal equinox.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Passover

In the narrative of the Exodus, the Bible tells that YHWH inflicted ten plagues upon the Egyptians before Pharaoh would release his Hebrew slaves, with the tenth plague being the killing of all of the firstborn, from the Pharaoh's son to the firstborn of the dungeon captive, to the firstborn of cattle. The Hebrews were instructed to mark the doorposts of their homes with the blood of a spring lamb and, upon seeing this, the spirit of the Lord passed over these homes, hence the term "passover". When Pharaoh freed the Hebrews, it is said that they left in such a hurry that they could not wait for bread to rise. In commemoration, for the duration of Passover, no leavened bread is eaten, for which reason it is called "The Festival of the Unleavened Bread". Matsah (unleavened bread) is the primary symbol of the holiday. This bread that is flat and unrisen is called Matsah.

Together with Shavuot ("Pentecost") and Sukkot ("Tabernacles"), Passover is one of the three pilgrim festivals (Shalosh Regalim) during which the entire Jewish populace historically made a pilgrimage to the Temple in Jerusalem. Samaritans still make this pilgrimage to Mount Gerizim, but only men participate in public worship.

The holy day of the Christian feast of Easter is actually called "Passover" (or a derivative of Pascha) in most languages other than English and German. The Synoptic Gospels relate that Jesus' Last Supper was a Passover SEDER (Luke 22:15-16).

This year [2015], Passover begins at sunset on the eve of April 3 and ends at nightfall on April 11.

I created a list of 108 Passover YouTube videos. There is something for everyone. Enjoy!
