My boyfriend really wants to have sex in a public place, but I’m nervous.What are the best places to have sex, and what do we do if we get caught?Pretty useless and just perpetuates stereotypes (jewish men are neurotic, good lovers, and only doctors/lawyers/bankers). I have no idea how the author managed to date and know so many Jews and yet still get so much wrong.I realized it was going to be a fluffy book, but there could have been some relevance (for example how culture influences their choices, how religious rites fit in), but this was certainly all about how to change yourself and try to fit in. All she does is perpetuate and encourage stereotypes, instead of being practical and realistic.The term derives from the Hebrew word "sheketz", meaning the flesh of an animal deemed taboo by the Torah.Since a Jewish man marrying a non-Jewish woman is taboo also, this word applies to her.
And because Jewish men value professional drive, your mom can finally tell neighbors that you're dating a doctor, lawyer, or entrepreneur. Of course, dating a nice Jewish boy comes with its caveats -- most obvious, the whole Messiah thing.As a Jew, I would not recommend this to any shiksa for reading.I have no idea how the author managed to date and know so many Jews and yet still get so much wrong.The good news is that if you're dating a Jew, he's likely either Reform or simply acculturated, and thus, open-minded about mixing it up a bit.(Unless conversion is your idea of a hot first-date topic, don't waste your time with Conservative and Orthodox observances.) Whether your love mensch is super religious is seldom the issue.
