From her quirky explanation of why she is enamored of all things Jewish to her hilarious essay on the Jewish art of cursing (“May all your teeth fall out except one and that one should have a toothache”) this collection of essays from the popular “Mishugas” column that ran in the San Antonio Jewish Journal for fifteen years serves up bite-sized musings on things Jewish. Guaranteed to offer a laugh (“Personal ad: Divorced Jewish man seeks partner to attend shul with, light Shabbat candles, celebrate holidays, build a Succah together, attend bar mitzvahs. Religion not important”), or an insightful commentary on the Jewish-Chinese food connection (“Somehow my Bubbe was convinced chicken chow mein was kosher”), Linda Kaufman entertains us with her comments on life seen through a Jewish lens.
