LIKE A B'SULEH: The Forward 50, the Jewish weekly's annual list of the who's who among American Members of the Tribe, is touched for the very first time by a goy this year. Yes, that Meshugeneh Girl Esther, otherwise known as Madonna, shows up on the paper's list (login: ALOTTFMA, pass: Madonna) alongside notables Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Philip Roth, Jon Stewart, Larry David, Natalie Portman, Shawn Green, and a bunch of other rabbis, bankers and lawyers. Actually Esther was something of a borderline pick, as the paper expanded its list to 51 in order to justify its love for the way she expresses herself with Kabbalah, making Judiasm a vogue religion in the process.
