Says Rabbi Sol Solomon about this week’s show, “The year was 1974. Naked people were running across college campuses, the Oscars, the Super Bowl, Yom Kippur services… These `streakers’--most of whom were men, goddammit--were immortalized by Ray Stevens in his novelty hit, `The Streak,’ which caused even more people to take up the pastime.  I will beg Mr. Stevens, therefore, to write a song called `The Worshipers,’ about nubile stewardesses who have a compulsion to seduce rabbis.  Worth a shot, no?”

Says Rabbi Sol Solomon about this week’s show, ”From her #1 single “Stay” to her reality TV shows, Lisa Loeb has conquered media for two decades.  Now she’s taken to the stage, co-writing a children’s musical called, `Camp Kappawanna.’  Why a nice Jewish girl would want to write an off-Broadway show about camp is beyond me.  Everyone in my family--from my parents to my uncles to my distant cousins--absolutely hated camp.  Granted, they were in Auschwitz…”
