Excellent. Laugh out loud. Jews, our foibles and sense of humour, A good one for anecdotes to use at Purim! She should be a stand up Jewish comedian. If you love Yiddishkeit sense of humour you'll love this!

Bit of a failure on my part rather than the books, but still not a very thrilling read.

Packaged well and arrived in good time, and if you are actually Jewish and looking to teach your son about your faith then probably a great buy.

The shipping time was average and the book was in good condition.
I was really disappointed to discover a big black ink stain at the bottom of the book, though.
Having soaked the pages it's visible and can't be removed.
The lucky thing is that being at the bottom the book is readable.
Not happy about it but not worth returning it and have to go through the whole shipping process again.

"The Big Jewish Book for Jews" 7 Sept. 2010
By Mish G. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
What, again with Amazon Schmamazon hoching me to review something, as if I didn't have enough to do already, just in case you ask?

Now, if you did not fully understand the delicately nuanced subtext of what I just said--that I'm pleased that Amazon invites its customers to share their opinions on its retail products and I'm quite happy to offer mine--then "The Big Jewish Book for Jews" is your introduction and your guide to the hermeneutics of Jewish-American thought, culture, and behavior. What, you were expecting maybe hermaneutics?

"TBJBFJ" is hilarious, but amid all that plotzing with laughter you'll recognize the larger and, dare I say, deeper meaning and context of what it is that constitutes Jewishness--not Judaism, but Jewishness, which is something else altogether. Authors Davilman & Weiner really nail it on every count, from how to over-cook (not as in "well-done," but "preparing far too much food") to how to act with humility (you should be so lucky to learn).

This should be on everyone's Chanumas gift list. And if Chelsea Clinton didn't receive a copy at her bridal shower before she married that nice Jewish boy, somebody should give her one. Nu, what are you waiting for??

A Fun Read! 28 Sept. 2010

This is another hilarious, albeit wise book from a couple of the funniest writers in America today.

Hilarious 10 July 2011
By Cookie - Published on Amazon.com
It is probably funnier if the reader is Jewish--so many "in" jokes--but the title of the book says it best.......I started to read it while traveling by plane and had to put it down--my (loud) laughter was disturbing my seat mates..........I do find myself reading parts of it over and over and then quoting parts of it to friends...........the authors really "nailed it" in so many ways.

If you don't buy this book you should at least call your mother. 22 May 2014
By Carol Joseph - Published on Amazon.com
Do it now. This book is essential reading, but calling your mother is essential doing.
Sincerely,
A person who enjoyed this book.

funny but... 29 May 2015
By Chubbycherub - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I bought this knowing it was going to be funny but it is all jokes and almost nothing useful. I grew up in a non practicing family so I look for books to help me return to my roots but this isn't one of those. If you're looking for funny this is certainly funny and full of stereotypes. Three stars since it made me laugh out loud on the train.
