Times Magazine Money Issue Features Sholom Auslander, Syrian Jews and Daphne Merkin

The best Jewish newspaper in America has plenty to read this week.... about Jews and money, not that there is anything wrong with that. Did you know that Jerry Seinfeld was part Syrian Jew?

‘Are You Talkin’ to Me?’ By SHALOM AUSLANDER
The Sy Empire By ZEV CHAFETS
The Syrian Jews of Gravesend, Brooklyn, rear their children to marry other Syrian Jews and make a fortune (the boys, anyway).

And of course Daphne Merkin's true confession about the two $500 sweaters that she bought in the Hamptons and how she misses her little house in Atlantic Beach. Why did mummy sell it? Boo hoo. ... Lives: Money Always Talks
