This book is one of the funniest books I have read. I have tested this book on both Jews and non Jews, and they all laughed themselves to a near death experience ...
I have got so much laughters out of it, I'm considering conversion :)

My wife and I laughed ourselves silly. The fact that we are of the persuasion of the the book's title probably has a little to do with this, but anyone would enjoy this book. Even (especially) if you happen to already be a reform Jew, don't pass this little book up.

I've been extremely reform for years, but until I found this book I didn't know what to call myself. Now that I know, I'll probably start to feel guilty and terrible. As soon as I stop laughing. This is one of the funniest books I have ever read. I wish it were longer.

I am a Jew-by-Choice (by-marriage) I found this book Hilarious, but my husband who is "ethnically" jewish found it bordering on racial slurs. Perhaps he hit too close to home... When he when to a cousin's bar mitzvah last week, he wore his tallit like a scarf! He didn't know how to put on one even though our reform rabbi wears one to every service! So, I get my loving nickname back: shiksa because I actually laughed at this book! OY! Like many jews he really doesn't know what the Yiddish word shiksa translates as...

Format: Paperback
I'm a non-Jewish Asian-American yet I absolutely love this book. Many of the pages had me rolling in laughter. Highlights include making a yalmuke from a Mickey Mouse hat and the list of feast/famine holidays (I work in a Jewish hospital so the list is actually helpful!). The illustrations are hilarious. I love the book so much that I've bought over 6 copies throughout the years to give as gifts. And it's one of the few books I've read more than once. To those of you who don't like reading, don't worry -- this isn't a novel or anything with continuity. It's more like a collection of jokes, skits or observations of Jewish life.

It obviously helps to be Jewish as some of the jokes require prior knowledge or experience. But there is so much here that anyone who finds Seinfeld funny should enjoy it.

ps - I just bought 2 more copies!
