With all the failings of Judaism, I still am a very proud Jew. That is why I changed my name from Fievel to Paul, and from Mendlowitz to Manilow. I want Jews to have names they can be proud of. The name Mendlowitz just didn't cut it, it's a getto name. Besides how can I go around being proud of my semicha, when my grandfather insisted on being called Mister?

I also do a great service to Judaism, don't be surprised if you meet me and I'm not wearing a yarmulke. I try not to wear it anymore, I don't want to make a chillul hashem with my actions.
