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!!!!
Shlomoh's video of the day - PURIM!

PURIM (/'p??r?m/; Hebrew: Pûrîm "lots", from the word pur, related to Akkadian: puru) is a Jewish holiday that commemorates the deliverance of the Jewish people in the ancient Persian Empire where a plot had been formed to destroy them. The story is recorded in the Biblical Book of Esther (MEGILLAT ESTER in Hebrew).

According to the Book of Esther, Haman, royal vizier to King Ahasuerus (presumed to be Xerxes I of Persia), planned to kill all the Jews in the empire, but his plans were foiled by Mordecai and his cousin and adopted daughter Esther, who had risen to become Queen of Persia. The day of deliverance became a day of feasting and rejoicing. Based on the conclusions of the Scroll of Esther (Esther 9:22): "[...] that they should make them days of feasting and gladness, and of sending portions one to another, and gifts to the poor." Purim is therefore celebrated among Jews by:
Exchanging reciprocal gifts of food and drink known as MISHLOACH MANOT
Donating charity to the poor known as MATTANOT LA-EVYONIM.
Eating a celebratory meal known as a SE'UDAT PURIM
Public recitation ("reading of the megillah") of the Scroll of Esther, known as KRIAT HA-MEGILLAH, usually in synagogue
Reciting additions, known as AL HANISSIM, to the daily prayers and the grace after meals
Other customs include drinking wine or any other alcoholic beverage, wearing of masks and costumes, and public celebration.

This year, 2015, Purim will fall om Wednesday night, March 4, and Thursday day, March 5.

... drinking wine or any other alcoholic beverage - One of my gentile ex-girlfriends said to me, "You people have a holiday on which you you are actually commanded to get drunk?
