Recently, I found myself on a date with someone I was sure was Jewish.
We were in New York, and he had brown hair and the first name of a biblical hero — what was I supposed moms seducing teens do, ask to see his foreskin? He was not Jewish, as it turned out.

And on our hardcore, I learned a lot about Conservative Christian theology and the homeschooling system. But you are polite and from New Jersey, I wanted to say!
You are wearing khakis and a button-down!
How dare you deceive me like this! In most other cases, religion is considered an iffy topic for a first date — even if both people on the hardcore are Jews who are both pretty sure they want to live and die without owning a Christmas tree. Cut down from a list of jewish, the Forward presents: You, your parents, and your sister all have jobs at Jewish organizations?
I guess for me, I just think organized religion is a pathetic exercise in brainwashing. We both agree that Netanyahu is corrupt but to criticize the Israeli government is not to criticize the existence of Israel, right? We both agree that Israel is the one stronghold of the Jewish people and can do no wrong, right?
