Jewish Etiquette



Did your grandmother every "poo-poo" you? Do Jews "knock on wood?" What do you say at a mourner's house, when you win the lottery, or if your stock portfolio falls 50%? What is the proper response when a women tells you she is expecting? And what's the Jewish equivalent of "omigosh"?

This lecture series takes you through the Jewish life cycle and teaches you the proper greetings and responses for any situation. L'chaim!
