Spoon-bender, rabbi and racy Catholic
News reaches me of an unusual title on Element’s list next year: The Psychic and the Rabbi, which contains the correspondence between the controversial paranormalist Uri Geller and the controversial rabbi Shmuley Boteach. More than 50 letters range over some of the big religious and moral issues of the day: why we suffer, sexual energy as a spiritual force, the cult of Diana and so on. They sign off with phrases such as “Yours in great love” and “Reciprocating all of your immense love”.
The advance publicity for these two notable Jews has an intriguingly interdenominational flavour. For further details, Element offers the contact name of Scarlett Nunn.

“There is no spoon!”
“The world needs your amazing talents. I need them”
“Uri Geller gave an absolutely resonating talk on his life and career. He had every single magician in the room on the edge of their seats trying to digest as much information as they could. Uri emphasized that the path to frame is through uniqueness and charisma and that professional entertainers must be creative in their pursuits of success and never shy away from publicity.”

“The man is a natural magician. He does everything with great care, meticulous misdirection and flawless instinct. The nails are real, the keys are really borrowed, the envelopes are actually sealed, there are no stooges, there are no secret radio devices and there are no props from the magic catalogues.”
James Randi (In an open letter to Abracadabra Magazine)

“Eternity is down the hall And you sit there bending spoons In your mind, in your mind”
“I Have watched Uri Geller… I have seen that so I am a believer. It was my house key and the only way I would be able to use it is get a hammer and beat it out back flat again.”
“Better than watching Geller bending silver spoons, better than witnessing new born nebulae’s in bloom”
