Annie the luminous Dianne Keaton is a Midwestern transplant who dabbles in photography and sings in small clubs. When the two meet, the sparks are immediate — if repressed.

Allen's antic sensibility shines here in a series of flashbacks to Alvy's childhood, growing up, quite literally, under a rumbling roller coaster. His boisterous Jewish family's dinner table shares a split screen with Hall's tight-lipped holiday table, one Alvy has joined for the first time. In the blink of "Grammy Hall's" eye, Alvy is transformed into a shtetl Jew, complete with beard and eastern European clothing, leading Allen to pose the ultimate Jewish question: "Is it the old Groucho Marx joke that I'm - I just don't want to belong to any club that would have someone like me for a member?

Diner is the Paul S. The History of Name-Changing in the U. Some make use of Korean-language Talmudic texts, while others follow entirely secular curricula. It began in the mids, when Korean translations of Talmud-inspired stories by Rabbi Marvin Tokayer, an American military chaplain stationed in Japan, first arrived in Seoul bookstores.

The Talmud, the vast Hebrew and Aramic compendium of first millennium law and lore, effectively went viral in South Korea: In the decades since, hundreds of Korean versions of the Talmud have appeared, mostly deriving from English-language translations and commentaries. These range from picture story books for children to thicker, more ponderous volumes for adults. But South Korean Talmud fever also sparked a highbrow fascination with Jewish knowledge — one that has spawned all manner of remarkable publications, including a Korean-language translation of the Haggadah, the book Jews read at the Passover seder.

And, as Kim Jung-wan explains, interest in the Talmud eventually led Korean academics to explore how Jews study religious texts. They began to learn about yeshivas, academies that are devoted to Talmud scholarship. In fact, most Orthodox yeshivas follow a policy of tactfully dissuading non-Jews from pursuing Talmud study. South Korean academics, however, appear undaunted. Skeptics urge caution, noting that South Korean education fads tend to come and go, especially in the ultra-competitive world of private academic institutions.

The methodology is gaining mainstream acceptance fast, moving from private academies into conventional public classrooms.
