My dad, on the other hand, is a staunch atheist (Jewish… ), so he does not care, he just wants grandkids, and he tells me this a lot.
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.
In my past relationships, I was younger and wasn’t really thinking so far ahead, so none of that future stuff really mattered.
Now that I’m more explicitly looking for the person to spend my life with and have children with, it feels more important to at least try to find a Jewish partner.
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.

my hair article for Alma, I was looking into stereotypes of Jews — literally reading stuff from the 1880s — and it turns out that way way back, Jews were known for being pale with reddish blondish hair.
think it’s definitely starting to become “hotter” to me when someone is a Jew.
As millennial Jewish women, we have lots of thoughts and feelings on dating.
