    114-Bad Rabbi: And Other Strange But True Stories from the Yiddish Press by Eddy Portnoy

    114-Bad Rabbi: And Other Strange But True Stories from the Yiddish Press by Eddy Portnoy

    Bad Rabbi: And Other Strange But True Stories from the Yiddish Press
    Book by Eddy Portnoy
    Stories abound of immigrant Jews on the outside looking in, clambering up the ladder of social mobility, successfully assimilating and integrating into their new worlds. But this book is not about the success stories. It's a paean to the bunglers, the blockheads, and the just plain weird—Jews who were flung from small, impoverished eastern European towns into the urban shtetls of New York and Warsaw, where, as they say in Yiddish, their bread landed butter side down in the dirt. These marginal Jews may have found their way into the history books far less frequently than their more socially upstanding neighbors, but there's one place you can find them in force: in the Yiddish newspapers that had their heyday from the 1880s to the 1930s. Disaster, misery, and misfortune: you will find no better chronicle of the daily ignominies of urban Jewish life than in the pages of the Yiddish press.

    An underground history of downwardly mobile Jews, Bad Rabbi exposes the seamy underbelly of pre-WWII New York and Warsaw, the two major centers of Yiddish culture in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. With true stories plucked from the pages of the Yiddish papers, Eddy Portnoy introduces us to the drunks, thieves, murderers, wrestlers, poets, and beauty queens whose misadventures were immortalized in print. There's the Polish rabbi blackmailed by an American widow, mass brawls at weddings and funerals, a psychic who specialized in locating missing husbands, and violent gangs of Jewish mothers on the prowl—in short, not quite the Jews you'd expect. One part Isaac Bashevis Singer, one part Jerry Springer, this irreverent, unvarnished, and frequently hilarious compendium of stories provides a window into an unknown Yiddish world that was.

    #amberalert, #brooklyn, #dragqueen, #jewbalations, #mysonwearsheels
    Julie Tarney is an author, speaker, and advocate for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer/questioning (LGBTQ+) youth.

    Her memoir, MY SON WEARS HEELS (University of Wisconsin Press, 2016) shared what she learned about gender identity, gender expression, and self-acceptance from her only child, Harry, and what her parenting journey with Harry, from toddler to adulthood, taught her about herself. Sharing that experience in public appearances, Julie has touched the lives of so many in diverse settings. She is devoting her life to reaching as many people as possible, with an emphasis on gender identity related topics. Her mission is to make the world safer and the future more inclusive for LGBTQ+ youth.

    Julie Tarney serves on the board of the It Gets Better Project, guest writes for HuffPost, and is a contributing advice columnist for My Kid Is Gay. She volunteers regularly as a speaker for PFLAG NYC‘s Safe Schools Program and is also a member of the National Center for Transgender Equality’s Families for Trans Equality network. Julie was named a “Favorite Queer Hero of 2016” by HuffPost and one of BlogHer’s “Voices of the Year” in 2015.

    “There are thousands of people who are just beginning this journey right now,” Tarney said. “They include parents, extended family, neighbors, educators, and co-workers. Almost all are either learning about or trying to get comfortable with issues related to gender identity. They have questions about how those issues effect the people they care about, work with, or interact with in their lives and communities. I want those people to know they’re not alone. And I’ve seen how my story can help them.”

    Julie has spoken to a variety of audiences in academic, workplace and other settings. She has also been a guest at LGBTQ Pride events to share her experience and expertise.

    A longtime resident of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Julie now lives in Brooklyn, New York. She can often be found cheering in the audience at her creative director and sometimes-drag-artist son Harry’s performances.
