American Jews are so much more Jewish than Israelis…
Our boy Noah in Chicago put up part two of the video of his date with Sarah. Noah is doing an online reality-type show called JewCompleteMe documenting his attempt to date and get into a serious relationship with a Jewish woman. He’s documented one date so far, with a woman called Sarah. She’s Catholic, but he felt that starting his show this way would demonstrate why it is he wants a relationship with a Jewish woman. Also, Sarah’s kinda hot and I guess not too many Jewish women want their dates taped and posted on the Internet.
Well… this does end up being kind of instructive. Especially the in depth discussions on Jewish identity where the Catholic makes the majority of the salient points. And why not? We have Ari Goldman, winner of Israel’s Kosher Bachelor reality show, recently dating yet another blond Catholic woman, who is also a blogger… And then we have Jared Kushner, owner of the New York Observer. He’s young, he comes from a wealthy family in the real-estate business, his grandparents were Holocaust survivors and important philanthropists to numerous Orthodox charities. Jared was reportedly President of Chabad while he studied at Harvard. And yet who was he seen canoodeling with in a decidedly non-platonic manner at Manhattan’s Bowlmor lanes? Why none other that Ivanka Trump, golden tressed daughter of the Donald and… also not a Jew. Rich people are too busy being fabulous to blog so instead, I had to read about that on Gawker.
Aaaah. Like my parents always say “Matzatem et America!” meaning, congratulations, you have truly found America. So yes, see what I mean? Noah’s video is not just instructive, it’s reflective of his generation as well. I don’t want to say any mean things because being mean seems to make Ofri sad and that makes TM cry. Instead, I’ll ask – above and beyond the examples cited previously, what’s the story? Why are Jewish men not dating Jewish women, and vice-versa? Does dating non-Jews happen that often? Is the blond thing just an added bonus? Will Noah ever find his (Jewish) soul mate? Stay tuned and find out.
