Good-Bye Baleboosteh Bible
Dear Jewish Living,
I, for one, am so sad to see you go. I was actually thinking about buying subscriptions to you for all my Jewish gal pals, but I see I am too late.
I was one of your first subscribers when you opened shop last year and I looked forward to your bimonthly issues. Now I wish I had saved them all. I will miss your kosher recipes, smart articles on everything from mikvah use to whether tattoos were kosher.
It's been a good 10 months.
P.S. So, um, could you not run that credit card for my next two years' subscriptions? Thanks.
