Jewish Autonomous Region

JTA reports: “Officials in the Jewish Autonomous Region of Birobidzhan in Siberia claim to have built the world’s largest menorah.”

Which leads me to report: Holy sh**t! There’s something called the “Jewish Autonomous Region of Birobidzhan.”

This so-called JARB has a website.

Plus, its flag is similar to those I see waving from many windows in Park Slope, which indicates that this is one progressive autonomous region!
