Jeremy Greenberg, a stand-up comic, has written an amusing, albeit perplexing, essay on “How Jesus Made Me a Better Jew” for American Jewish Life magazine. “Jesus first came to me in sixth grade through my friend’s older sister’s breasts,” he says.
As he grew older, some combination of adolescent rebellion and personal role models who were Christian led him to baptize himself and email his parents, “I am Christian.”
But it didn’t take. “For months I felt ‘off’ both personally and professionally,” he says. Eventually, for reasons that aren’t remotely clear from his essay, he sets aside Jesus and reembraces his Jewish identity. How he does that is also not explained.
Maybe he found some Jewish body parts worth worshipping.
