Bulvan - A gross person, a hulk.
Brochah - Blessing (Yes, yes, we know that Hamotzi is the wrong brochah to made over pastry - it gets a Borei Minei Mezonot, but maybe the rules are different in Shtetl Montreal.)
Jewish Humor Central is a blog to start your day with news of the Jewish world that's likely to produce a knowing smile and some Yiddishe nachas. It's also a collection of sources of Jewish humor--anything that brings a grin, chuckle, laugh, guffaw, or just a warm feeling to readers. Our posts include jokes, satire, books, music, films, videos, food, Unbelievable But True, and In the News. Some are new, and some are classics. We post every morning, Sunday through Friday. Enjoy!
