Bonus factoid: Funkhaus- er is played by Bob Einstein, whose brother is Albert Brooks (yes, that's right, real name: Albert Einstein). Mohels and rabbis Jewish clergy haven't fared too well in David's creative hands (then again, few people do). The rabbis on "Seinfeld" and "Curb" are always flawed, either incapable of keeping a secret or self-absorbed. And then there's the shaky-handed mohel from "The Bris" epi- sode of "Seinfeld." The seder On "The Seder" episode of "Curb," Larry takes "Let all who are hungry come and eat" to a new level--inviting a registered sex offender at the last second. Jewish self-hatred "Curb" ended its fifth season with a multi-episode arc featuring Larry being told he was adopted and tracking down his supposed birth family--a collection of decidedly un-neurotic and extremely kind religious Christians. In short, the exact opposite of Larry. The result is a new, gentile, gentler Larry. Until he dis- covers it was all a mistake, at which point he returns to his old self (following a brief trip to heaven). Implication: The Jews and the Jewish are responsible for all of Larry's loathsome characteristics. It's hard to think of a more decidedly anti-Jewish mes- sage on television. Not that there's anything wrong with that--as long as it's funny. Monday, Aug. 11, 2014, at his residence. He was 63 years old. Mr. Stone was born in Newark, New Jersey, on April 6, 1951, to the late Bencion and Regina Lehrer Stone. He attended local area schools, enlisting in the U.S. Navy upon graduation. Following his military service Mr. Stone graduated from the College of Staten Island with a degree in anthropology. On Aug. 20, 1972, in Brook- lyn, he married the former Maureen Mauer, his wife of nearly 32 years, who survives him.A manager in the telecom field, they relocated to the Central Florida area in 2007. In addition to his wife, Mr. Stone is survived by his son, Joshua, of Dallas, Texas; daughter, Jamie (Craig) Gold- stein of Winter Garden; and two grandchildren.
