This was snagged from the humor section and is a training manual for Jewish mothers and how to really use passive aggressive comments and guilt. The author asserts that this training is also appropriate for other ethnic groups and religions.
Of course this book is old but not necessarily a bad choice. My gripe is that the tape and certain unidentified substances make it weed-worthy. I will leave it to the Jewish mothers out there to discuss the accuracy of the “advice”.
I think we can include this in our geography material, even though Israel didn’t exist until 1948. I am going to cut this book some slack given the time it was published. The intent was to educate on Jewish culture and religion. That said, how is this helpful for a contemporary collection? My favorite of the contents: “Why bother to get acquainted with Jews?” This belongs in an archive, not in a public library.
