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!!!
