And I thought Monty Python was no longer working.
I am not Jewish, and, therefore, have never gone through a bar mitzvah myself. But I’ve heard stories from Jewish friends and co-workers (plus Howard Stern’s account of his own emotionally-scarring one). I take it that your average bar mitzvah is filled with a combination of joy, pride and shear terror. What more could you ask from any religious tradition?
You have to see the film “Sixty Six”.
Pretty good. You’ve managed to combine a slew of false data to actually come up with a correct conclusion. Indeed, a stopped digital clock is right once a day.
That made me feel sad for Jewish mothers in general and awful for the poor lady sent home.
I would like to think that Jewish mothers of the year are those that push their children into studying hard and getting them into good colleges pursuing business, professional or science courses of study.
You mean, who want to make their children lawyers and doctors and accountants?
That’s where the money is.
Mamas don’t let your babies grow up to be gabbais.
Definitely cringe-worthy, but as a mother of a Bar Mitzva boy (next year), I couldn’t look away, like the proverbial train wreck. I guess there are some positives – confident, articulate, successful women, proud Jewesses, who love their families, and are loved.
Could be worse ……
Look up “Jewish Style” on YouTube.
That’s actually completely false. One is Bar mitzvah automatically at 13 (provided puberty hs started). There is very little historical source for the modern Bar Mitzvah.
OK, this is sick. My Dad hated the whole stereotype, pointing out that in his parents’ generation, the eEwish mother (and father) worked hard to litelally keep her children from starving.
