A couple months ago, you may recall that Elisberg Industries added a new member to our corporate board. That was when we made Rabbi Jack Moline our new VP of Telecommunications. Not doubt many people scoffed, thinking that Corporate Spiritual Adviser might have been more appropriate.
O ye of little faith. (No pun intended. Sort of.)
This morning I got an email from Rabbi Moline, hard at work in his Elisberg Industries office, who -- after scouring all our multimedia here that's posted daily -- came upon the video of Herschel Bernardi on Israeli television, posted here the other day.
As befits a VP of Telecommunications who is a rabbi in his spare time and therefore actually understands Hebrew, he kindly jumped right in and did a translation. What he wrote was --
"The Israeli TV show in the second clip is also fascinating. Bernardi clearly understands no Hebrew, and I can't say I listened closely enough to get the whole of his intro, but the host referred to our ancestors, 'our father Abraham, our father Isaac, our father Jacob' and then said 'today we welcome our father Herschel' and immediately mentioned him as the star of 'Arnie,' which was likely playing on Israeli TV at the time. He also makes a joke about Bernardi wearing sandals, saying he came from the beach."
To all you scoffers -- so there! It's for reasons just like this that we do such careful hiring. And why we brought on board Rabbi Jack Moline as our VP of Telecommunications.
Hey, do we look out for you, or what?!
Biddy biddy bum.
Robert J. Elisberg is a political commentator, screenwriter, novelist, tech writer and also some other things that I just tend to keep forgetting.
