Truth is Stranger Than Fiction

        I watched this show yesterday and I was blown away by it. It would not be on TV these days for several reasons. Joan Rivers is interviewing a child psychologist and Jerry Lewis. Lewis is in favor of spanking his kids.  I  found an interesting snippet while watching this . Jerry Lewis who grew up performing in the Catskills and attending orthodox shuls says on live TV in 1968 that he prefers to wear a yamulke in shul while davening because he grew up going to orthdox shuls. He says this 4 minutes into this clip. This is all quite curious when one looks at the secular Jewish life that Lewis has lived. It just goes to show you that there always is that spark of a Jew within a person no matter how much one has strayed.
