...the Jewish dating website JDate is introducing an advertising campaign that hopes to help buck the trend, with ads that may strike a chord with Jews but leave others scratching their heads.
More Jews than a Chinese restaurant on Christmas, says the text with a photograph of a fortune cookie, referring to a common choice for Jews. Find someone who shares your love of gefilte fish, says another. Shiksappeal is overrated, says another, using a Yiddish term for non-Jewish women, shiksa, that some consider derogatory. Find someone who wasnt on your Birthright trip, says yet another ad, referring to Birthright Israel, an organization that provides free trips to Israel for young Jews.

Shiksappeal is a myth, like the Yeti, or his North American cousin, the Sasquatch.
But seriously, their sense of humor has sustained them for 3,000 years. Or is it 5,000?
Don't forget the Christmas Story family. (You'll shoot your eye out kid)
My experience with Jewish women is that one doesn’t get a second look if the income is lower than $150K/year. If you don’t believe me check out the Jewish women in area code 10036 and see what they require of a mate.
You anti- denture b.........! Next,you’ll say little Jerry Seinfeld was on roads!
Real jewelry and fake orgasms ....
Rather marry a Catholic
Fake jewelry and real orgasms ....
It “Boggles” the mind!

If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.

I would never have dated a girl (woman) who wasn’t nice, smart, college educated, beautiful, fit, wants children, and comes from a good observant family -— and who wants to stay home and raise the children (at least through elementary age).
They have similar high expectations.
Q: How do you know Barry Goldwater was only half Jewish?
A: If he was all Jewish Arizona would be irrigated by now.

Needless to say I love the stuff, from Legman’s “Rationale” to collections like Mr. Spauldings book.
