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. Listeners will learn how to sacrifice a lamb unto the Lord, the rules of Canasta, how to build a pyramid (both the Bernie Madoff and the Egyptian kind), and how not to accept the first table you are shown to in a restaurant. Through this funny and informative reference, listeners will build a connection to their ancestors and finally understand what it takes to be the Jew-est Jew of all.

    " Cute, but I didn't really learn much about being Jewish except what's already a stereotype. I did discover, however, that many of my bizarre personality traits that I thought were just me are actually part of a rich religious and cultural heritage. Now I feel vindicated. "

    " Hooray! I will now be better able to write believable, stereotypically Jewish characters as they would have appeared in the early 1950's! Thank you, Big Jewish Book for Jews! "

    " This book is a hilariously funny and well-written volume which is a must have humor text for any Jewish library. "
