The Big Jewish Book for Jews

Everything You Need to Know to Be a Really Jewish Jew

By Ellis Weiner & Barbara Davilman
Narrated by Yuri Rasovsky, Lorna Raver, Ellis Weiner & Barbara Davilman / 6 hours 49 minutes

If both Ike Turner and Isaac Bashevis Singer are Jewish, what does "being Jewish" even mean? The assimilated Jews of today are lost, and they need to relearn the old ways so their identity comes to mean something other than laughing knowingly at Curb Your Enthusiasm and being ambivalent about AIPAC. What they need is The Big Jewish Book for Jews, a hilarious compendium of instruction, handicrafts, and lore that will help them rediscover the traditional wisdom, skills and recipes, going all the way back to Moses and the original Exodus from Egypt, when God was the only GPS you needed. The Big Jewish Book for Jews brings together Jewish wit, inspiring tales, classic skills, and even pickle recipes, for the instruction and edification of the modern Jew. Readers will learn how to sacrifice a lamb unto the Lord, the rules of Canasta, how to build a pyramid (the Bernie Madoff kind and the Egyptian ones), and how not to accept the first table you are shown to in a restaurant. Through this funny and informative reference, readers will build a connection to their ancestors and finally understand what it takes to be the Jew-est Jew of all.
