I actually saw it twice last week: The power of the holy bipartisan spirit at work in our democratic republic. A 'D' from one state and an 'R' from another were proposing a reasonable, responsible and bipartisan solution to one of our bigger national problems. First, two U.S. senators, a Democrat from California and a Republican from Kentucky, introduced a bill to reform our unjust and unsafe bail system. "Our bail system is broken.
The rabbi showed us the specially prepared kosher ink he uses to repair damaged Torah scrolls. It was in a travel-size bottle of Pantene shampoo. "Airport security never looks inside this," Rabbi Levi Selwyn told the small gathering at Beth Sholom Synagogue in East Memphis. "If they did, I'd just tell him it's to color my beard." Airport security doesn't always overlook other objects the bearded and bespectacled rabbi carries in a clear plastic bag as he travels about the country.
Beth Sholom Synagogue in East Memphis is getting a new rabbi next month. Rabbi Sarit Horwitz will become the Conservative congregation's 11th rabbi in its 62-year history, and its third female rabbi since 2004. She will follow Rabbi Ilan Glazer, rabbi since 2013. Glazer is leaving the pulpit to move to Maryland, where he plans to devote more time to music and storytelling. Horwitz comes to Memphis from New York City, where she served as the senior rabbinic fellow at B’nai Jeshurun.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
