Oh, those meshuggenah... Jews?!


Our local supermarket gives out a pamphlet for Passover. It's full of useful coupons for those who like gefilte fish and macaroons, as well as a short summary of instructions detailing how to prepare for the holiday. The paragraph about getting rid of chametz (bread) ends with the following beauty:

On the morning of Passover, we burn all the chametz that was found during the search, and anything that was left over from breakfast not stored with the chametz that will be sold to the non-Jew.

"Non-Jew"? Come on, unknown pamphlet writer. "Gentiles". "Goyim". Or, how about just "sold to those who are not Jewish"?

Sigh.

Oh, those meshuggenah... Jews?!
