    Lila is Catholic.

    I once very surprised to discover that the wife of Jewish associate was Catholic, and I had to blurt out that “but you do Jewish Mother so well!”

    Lila’s mother is Jewish, father Catholic. They decided to raise her in the fathers religion and not in the mothers

    I grew up in Queens, NY and this is NOT an uncommon arrangement. After all, as a friend expleined it to me in 3rd Grade “Catholic is just Jewish plus Jesus and the Pope.”

    I didn’t know that and I’ve been reading this for a long time. I’ve often thought her mother sounded like the stereotypical Jewish mother and now I know why.

    Q: How many Jewish mothers does it take to change a lightbulb?
    A: “Don’t mind me. I’ll just sit here in the dark.”

    My mom was/is like this. If she didn’t hear from my sister, she always thought the worst! And we’re not Jewish. It’s just a mother thing, I guess! :/

    My hubby and I were prepared to go help out at a fundraiser and his mother said: “Go ahead and have a good time. If something happens to me, I’ll just call an ambulance.”

    That’s when you just say “mom we appreciate you being so independent”.

    As the author of How to Be a Jewish Mother pointed out, one does not need to be Jewish, or even female, to qualify.
