Learn everything you need to know about the holidays, traditions, beliefs, and culture of the Jew you love . . . and his or her family.

What to Do When You're Dating a Jew will:
give you a quick overview of the basics of Judaism
prepare you for meeting your significant other's Jewish family
brief you on Jewish holidays, ceremonies, and rituals
alert you to potentially embarrassing situations and show you how to avert them
entertain you with "It happened to me" stories from interfaith couples

Peppered with definitions of Yiddish terms, historical facts, jokes, quotes, and even recipes, this is essential reading for any woman or man involved with a Jew, whether looking for a deeper understanding of the Jewish faith or simply looking to survive a first seder at Bubbe's house.
