Top Jewish Holidays Quotes

Jewish Holidays Quotes By Andy Kindler

Jewish people, we don't believe in Hell or a future place to suffer. We're suffering right now. Every one of our holidays celebrates how much we've suffered. Passover - we're celebrating 5,000 years ago, God passed over our houses and murdered all the Egyptians. We're celebrating, 'Hey, thank God we didn't get slaughtered. — Andy Kindler

Jewish Holidays Quotes By Rhea Perlman

Our kids are not Jewish, and they're not Catholic. They're not Episcopalian. They're not Buddhist. They're not anything. We do all the holidays to keep the traditions and the culture going, but I truly don't have a great feeling about any particular organized religion, and I don't think it's right to impose one on my kids. — Rhea Perlman

Jewish Holidays Quotes By Sandra Bernhard

Purim, one of my favorite holidays. It's like the original drag queen's holiday. It's when all the Jewish men go for it and feel no guilt for a change. — Sandra Bernhard

Jewish Holidays Quotes By Marvin Olasky

Passover and Easter are the only Jewish and Christian holidays that move in sync, like the ice skating pairs we saw during the winter Olympics. — Marvin Olasky

Jewish Holidays Quotes By Peter Segal

I'm very spiritual and I'm Jewish by faith. I'm not a practising Jew, I'm more of a recreational Jew. I celebrate the holidays and I try to inform my kids about their heritage because I think we all at some point have to defend our heritage and if they get picked on I want them to know why. — Peter Segal

Jewish Holidays Quotes By Caroline Leavitt

I had always known that I was Jewish - we celebrated the holidays, we went to a synagogue - but I had never known that I was supposed to feel ashamed about it. — Caroline Leavitt

Jewish Holidays Quotes By Paul Giamatti

I have a son who's been raised Jewish because his mom is Jewish. I have a whole different set of holidays to celebrate. Everybody is thrown together with their family in such an intense way, opening all of that stuff again. You're cooped up with everybody and forced to exist with them, and you're forced to try to relate to them in this way that's more open. I guess that just doesn't work for a lot of people. — Paul Giamatti

Jewish Holidays Quotes By Aasif Mandvi

I'm Muslim the way many of my Jewish friends are Jewish: I avoid pork, and I take the big holidays off. — Aasif Mandvi

Jewish Holidays Quotes By Faye Moskowitz

Jewish Christmas' - that's what my gentile friends called Chanukah when I was growing up in Michigan in the thirties and forties. Anachronistic, yes, but they had a point. Observing the dietary laws of separating milk and meat dishes was far easier for the handful of Jewish families in our little town than getting through December without mixing the two holidays. — Faye Moskowitz

Jewish Holidays Quotes By Alan Bennett

There was little to choose between Jews and Catholics. The Jews had holidays that turned up out of the blue and the Catholics had children in much the same way. — Alan Bennett

Jewish Holidays Quotes By Thomm Quackenbush

Even if one is doing nothing more than eating Chinese food with one's Muslim and Jewish friends (don't order the pork lo mein), being together on the longest nights of the year, as the cold sets into the ground and makes it crunch, the warmth inside is infectious and transcendent. — Thomm Quackenbush

Jewish Holidays Quotes By Shawn Stewart Ruff

See, you don't wanna be a Jew. Too much work--there's a lot of holidays but it's even more work. It's sanctioned oppression, it's God's tyranny. — Shawn Stewart Ruff
