I hate it when they interview frum people for TV shows. Inevitably it always gets chopped and edited to make yidden look bad. When the interview is going on it looks like such a kidduch hashem will go on but it is never the case. Yidden are portrayed as a bunch of crazies. You’ll see.

She told me she never forgave him. She was a friend a long time ago in SF.,along with Stedman. Way before she went ”big,” you should excuse the expression.

DB says: “Her father named her after Harpo Marx.Oprah is Harpo backwards. She told me she never forgave him.” “DB” STOP making up bubbe mahysis! YOUR STORY IS A BOLD FACED LIE. In Oprah’s OWN words: “Oprah Winfrey: I was born, as I said, in rural Mississippi in 1954. I was born at home. There were not a lot of educated people around and my name had been chosen from the Bible. My Aunt Ida had chosen the name, but nobody really knew how to spell it, so it went down as “Orpah” on my birth certificate, but people didn’t… Read more »

no 2 .so right

You are so right that the interviews get so edited that they come out totally misconstrued. After the Crown Heights riots we were interviewed in our home by a journalist who once lived in Crown Heights. We tried to impress upon her the fear we felt during the riots. She sent us a copy of the finished product. Her main point was anti Jewish . How when she lived here as a child the Jews discriminated against her and how she sees this discrimination until today. She totally did not judge the rioters or killers of Yankel Rosenbaum but it… Read more »

NUMBER 27 – it is sad when Lubavitch shows their ignorance on line – (Ruth’s mother in law). What’s worse – until you came along no one corrected it…because no one knew?

True we don’t read it on Shavuos – but (a) you ought to know your Tenach and there’s plenty of reference in the Gemoroh and (b) we do say it in Tikun Lail

WHAT TOOK SO LONG?????
Guest
WHAT TOOK SO LONG?????

about twenty years ago as I was slowing merging into a reilgious life, I was having problems with my family accepting this change….I wrote OPRAH asking her to do a show on the topic….I guess this is as close as it gets!

Orpah

Not a biblical hero.
Five giant sons, with six fingers on each hand and six toes on each foot, (Goliath was her son) – all killed by Ruth’s grandchild..

I MET HER IN MY FLOWER SHOP IN THE EARLY EIGHTIES. IF YOU DON’T BELIEVE ME …I AM SORRY FOR YOU. HER HAIRDRESSER , IVORY,WAS ACROSS THE STREET FROM MY FLOWER SHOP. i am telling the truth,whether you believe it or not I don’t really care.If she is lying for some reason(habitual or pathological),that is not my problem.Hillary Clinton told me personally that she was named for Sir Edmund Hillary,the first man to scale Mt.Everest. Only she was born six years before he accomplished that feat!!! True. Believe it or not.

It’s parshas Noach this week. I hope the people she visited told her about the sheva mitzvos bnei Noach. If she wants a successful show, she should focus on strenthening the sheva mitzvos.

Let’s be optimistic, that these interviews will diminish prejudices and lots of non observant Jews will get inspired. Hatzlacha!!

I’m not getting what you are trying to say. Her accepted name is Oprah, so that’s Harpo backwards, right? So, Orpah doesn’t fit into the picture, right? So, what is it you are trying to say? Get a clue about what? Is it sarcasm you are trying to communicate? Just wondering.
