Molly: Yes, Al, i do want to hear more about “not searching Jewish” and exactly how that plays into the experience.
Al: Well, I became searching throughout the questions Emily sent earlier in the day, and another is mostly about whether we think there’s a “Jewish hot” or something like that. And that is something I’m actually super sensitive about in ways. Many of my buddies are told they don’t look like Jews because they’re Mizrahi or PoC or whatever, as well as similar to Scandinavian-looking Jews just like me.
From the being in Jouth Group Jewish youth group as well as the youth rabbi joking that I’d have a less strenuous time dating because every boy that is jewish a blonde. (Joke’s to them, I’m homosexual. )
