35 Signs You Were Raised By A Jewish Mother
Buzzfeed brings us a post titled “35 Signs You Were Raised By A Jewish Mother” – though really they should have made it 36 for the Double-Chai effect, am I right? What, it would have been so hard to come up with one more to make the article perfectly Jewish? But it’s ok. I’ll sit in the dark…
Seriously though, this is an almost great homage to Jewish Mothers everywhere on Mother’s day. Illustrated with those funny animated gifs the kids are posting everywhere now thanks to Tumblr, it contains classics and gems as follows:
You know to always bring a jacket no matter what the temperature is.
She asks, “Are you eating?” every time you talk on the phone.
She says she loves you no matter what your sexual orientation, just raise the children Jewish.
She’d prefer you marry a Jew, but if you don’t it’s not the end of the world. Just raise the children Jewish.
And what does he do? It doesn’t matter if he’s a doctor. It would just be nice, that’s all.
Twenty years later, she’s still talking about your Bar or Bat Mitzvah on a regular basis.
But only because she doesn’t have a wedding to talk about yet. HAVE YOU MET ANY NICE JEWISH BOYS OR GIRLS LATELY?
If you don’t call back immediately, you’re going to get guilt. She knows you’re busy, she just worries.
She reminds you how much your people have been through.
