A few months back, we stumbled upon what was, at the time, the most epic Jewish craigslist ad we’d ever seen: Seven (presumably) fresh-faced (presumably) Jewish (presumably) guys harnessing the power of the internet to meet seven semitic ladies, and have them over for a nice shabbat dinner. Here’s a snippet:
Shalom! We are five handsome and two not so handsome single men. And, yes, we are Jewish. Bound by tradition and emboldened by wit, we are hosting an epic Shabbat dinner — a little challah, a little wine, and a lot of gefilte fish — in downtown Washington, DC on Friday, January 18, 2013. In a nod to our orgiastic traditions, we are inviting seven lucky ladies to feast with us.
Charming. But watch out guys, you’ve got some competition:
Admittedly inspired by the original epic ad, these ladies are in it to win it: Beyoncé, Seth Cohen, Matzo ball soup – they’re hittin’ all those feel-good buttons for a specific subset of Jewish guys; Ones with strong opinions about 2008 Beyoncé and Seth Cohen. Want to know more? Feel free to email shabbatwithnatalieportman@
Still, Craigslist ladies, aren’t you better off simply combining forces with the original Craigslist guys? Five of you, Five (handsome ones) of them. Path of least resistance. And the two not-so-handsome ones? They can call their bubbies.
