As seen at the synagogue

I spent Yom Kippur in Houston. At the synagogue I grabbed their flier to see what they are up to. The small section “Mazal Tov” is where they congratulate members for various things. I found it to be a funny and interesting window into the Jewish psyche. Some examples in no particular order:

  • The Abramsons won the Torah Bowl. Good for them.
  • Laura, Ira and Mindy’s girl, got engaged. Mazal Tov!
  • Olga and Terry had a grandson. May they know nothing but naches.
  • Kevin, Olga and Terry’s boy won… AN OSCAR!!!

I’m actually surprised that the births of the grandchildren weren’t farther up in the list.
