Like Manischewitz with a twist, this saucy book will show the young Chosen Ones how to mix their Jewish roots with their happenin’ lifestyles. Bursting with playful anecdotes and amusing advice, Life, Love, Lox is the essential companion for any Jew looking to squeeze a little style out of the ol’ Torah. Ten chapters in all—like “Challapalooza,” “How to Lose a Guy in Ten Plagues” and “Lox, Stock, and Bagel”—dish on how to put together Shabbat dinner for the real world, how to meet the (observant) parents and how to embrace the high holy days with style. Covering everything from Kosher Kissing and making matzah balls to Speed-Dating and the Dayenu Diet, Life, Love, Lox is the best thing to happen to modern Jews since the Glatt Kosher hot dog cart at Yankee Stadium. This is a humorous girlfriend’s guide to living the hip life while keeping it Jewish.
