I get that; I’m more into being Jewish now than almost ever because my partner is so enthusiastic about it.
He loves to learn about Jewish culture, which I really appreciate, and almost didn’t realize I’d appreciate so much until I had sure, it’s starting to feel more important now that I am An Old and looking for a Husband.
Emily: I too feel like I’m becoming my Jewish grandma except I cannot cook. Hannah: My aunt married an Irish Catholic and he knows all the blessings, comes to temple, and all that stuff. It is just nice to not have the learning curve, or to have Judaism be one of the many things you do share with your partner.
There are always going to be things you have in common and things you don’t — and I think if you had to choose one thing to have in common, Jewishness is a worthwhile/valuable one.
In my past relationships, I was younger and wasn’t really thinking so far ahead, so none of that future stuff really mattered.
