In Hebrew School, they taught all of us little Jews that our people were God's "chosen people." They also taught us lots of other things, like how to read and write Hebrew, and which foods are kosher, but they didn't really do anything to prepare us for a lifetime of dating non-Jews.
In the same way as your mom made it abundantly clear you were attractive, smart and adorable, your wife will be sure to pour as much love and devotion onto your sons. We Rachel Weisz's and Natalie Portman's of the world know that in order to snag an Adam Brody or Jake Gyllenhall -- AKA a Torah-reading, vacation-loving and reasonably tall Jewish husband -- we must also deliver the goods. In fact, from the shtetl, to the ghetto, to right here in New York City, we’ve devoted our lives to it, having watched our mothers do exactly the same.(With advance notice and a little cajoling, of course, because we’re independent, busy people, too.)Behold: all the reasons why Jewish girls make the best wives.And daughters, but really, it’s the sons she’ll be telling are too good for every woman who comes their way.And not many people do, so you should really be grateful that she laughs at your jokes, despite having heard them a hundred times, and understands all your cultural references.
