8 Silly Questions Non-Jews Ask the Chosen People

As a Jew thrown into the Midwest for college, I find that when I leave the bubble of Washington University, the members of the St. Louis community are not as Jewish as those of WashJew. Some are confused by Judaism — our beliefs, our restrictions and our abilities as people.
As the Festival of Lights wraps up in high, fiery fashion, I think it’s time we discuss some of the most outrageous questions Jews have been asked this holiday season. When I was asked to write this article, instead of thinking up questions that non-Jews could ask, I did some research and asked friends (including CollegeCandy editor, the fabulous Jenni Maier) for some real-life experiences. Disclaimer: All of these questions have ACTUALLY been asked. This article is meant to be funny, not insulting!
