A black kippa atop his head, a chestful of military medals on his Marine dress uniform, Dave Rosner warms up the crowd with some stories about serving in the Middle East. Elsewhere, in a small upstate New York community, a quartet of young Orthodox men – among them Yeshivish, Chassidish and modern – are struggling to arrange a minyan for Minchah one afternoon. “Well, nine is just one short,” assures the Chassid in charge of logistics, guaranteeing the nervous group the imminent arrival of the tenth.

The incident occurred almost 20 years ago, and any related lawsuits were settled over a decade ago.
But more now than ever, old allegations continue to emerge against high-profile public figures, from Bill Cosby to Jimmy Savile to David Bowie.
There’s an Orthodox comedy club in Jerusalem, founded by Rochester-born oleh David Kilimnick.
You Tube is a major factor; it has opened up a new venue for funny frum people with thespian inclinations.
