    I can’t help think of Rabbi Nachum Eisenstein’s column, Denying Reality, in the Dec. 24 Yated. Our impact in the world doesn’t make the world love us more, and while hard work, ingenuity, and the desire to better mankind may be positive values, there is so much more for us to take pride in.

    Sorry, I’m not usually the wet blanket sort.

    Clever,

    Which Jew made the atom bomb, are you refering to Niels Bohr?

    #725708

    @Ruff Ruff I might have sacrified some historical accuracy for a really cutting remark..lots of the scientists that worked on the manhattan project were jews including Isidor Issac Rabi

    Drs. Sabin and Salk. also, Dr. Hilerman, Dr. Koproswski and all the others who tried. – I’m not sure they were Jewish.

    So much suffering was averted by this one discovery, so much anxiety and fear prevented. Just imagine the pain of parents not able to go to their own child’s funeral due to quarantine.

    A very cruel disease indeed, and today it is gone in most of the world due to the efforts of these people and others.

    Internet chat(the first user friendly, commercially available product that is) was developed by an Israeli company named Mirabelis and the product was called ICQ. They were bought by AOL in the late 90s, who then renamed the product.

    The Kindle was developed in Israel as was much of the current technology used in cell phones.

    Actually, I just heard that a device was invented in E”Y to enable a paraplegic to “walk” for short periods of time. That’s high up there.

    I guess there is some value in this. Because as the world goes crazy we can look at the dots on each other’s foreheads, and at least know that we are a people who strive to help and improve life for others.

    I always wondered…

    In China, do the people often say “Let’s go out for some Jewish”?

    Oomis- I don’t know specifically who invented EZ Pass but when I had my Touro orientation they brought up a number of times that the EZ Pass creator was a frum woman Touro graduate.
