JEWISH LIFE MEETS "THE REAL WORLD"
What happens when Jews stop being polite, and start being real.
An article in the Forward reports that two Canadians have decided to create a (13-part) reality show that features the life of a Jewish family going through the various milestones on the Jewish calendar. Titled "The Mazal Tov Chronicles," the show will be a depiction of traditional Jewish life. But what those traditions will be and how they will be displayed is going to be the tricky part:
"The challenge is to find a family that would agree to break the rules that they are trying to observe in order to educate the public," Leipnik [the producer] explained.
Oooh. That is a challenge. You have to find people who are knowledgeable about Judaism, traditional in their observance, with personality and humor, conflict and sensitivity, and who are willing to be a little less observant so that the cameras can be present to record observance in the name of education.
If this family also has a single son in his thirties, my dating search is over.
