The gauntlet’s been thrown. (Thanks, Julie Wiener!)
Iâ€™m still looking for good names for gentile women raising Jewish kids. Perhaps someone like the Jewish Outreach Institute or InterfaithFamily.com should sponsor a contest, hint hint.
Hopefully theyâ€™d come up with something better than JOI Associate Executive Director Paul Golinâ€™s (joking I hope) suggestion to me, via Facebook, that we call them MORBs: mothers of other religious backgrounds. A bit too close to â€śmorbidâ€ť for my taste.
So here we go: non-morbid MORBs (it’s not too close to “morbid” for me, but does sound like a cyborg model or something), is there an acronym, nickname, pet name, title of choice that you’d like to be called?
Leave your suggestions in the comments. In our next eNewsletter, I’ll poll readers to find out which suggestion is their favorite. The winner will receive a whole bunch of books (for adults and kids)!
Ready, set, leave your comments!Update: vote for your favorite entry!
