Ham on Matzah and Other Stories of Secular Jews
Ok, not to sound elitist or anything, but why would anyone think she has to keep Passover and not eat bread but think it's ok to eat the cheeseburger - so long as it doesn't have bread?
And I'm not kidding about the ham on matzah either - someone told me her father does it.
And these are not the only incidents I've had of people who I know don't keep kosher or shabbos or anything remotely related to Judaism that feel a need to refrain from bread on Pesach (and the need to go to shul on Yom Kippur probably).
What does that mean? Is it an extention of the Haskalah, but now insted of being a Jew at home and a mentsch outside you're a Jew twice a year and a goy the rest? I just don't get it! I'm not saying it's bad to do mitzvot or bad not to be perfect or any of that, but why do you think you can disregard all the commandments except two? I don't think that Judaism is an all-or-nothing deal; if it were we'd all be in trouble, but I also think Judaism is about more than matzah and white non-leather sneakers.
