New Chancellor of JTS?

Here’s the purim spoof I created in honor of the new Hebrew month of Adar. Purim is coming up and in that spirit I parodied a “Breaking News Alert” from the Jewish Telegrapic Agency reporting that Lawrence Summers, the former president of Harvard University, has accepted the chancellor position at the Jewish Theological Seminary. Apparently, at first, a few people thought it wasn’t a hoax! I guess they didn’t notice the date February 30, 2006 at the top of the page?!
