They meet at a kosher sushi restaurant in LA–where Chaya immediately says she prepared a list of questions, because she doesn’t want to waste her time, stating: “As our mothers may have discussed, I’m interested in leading a traditional Jewish life. Eventually, Leizer whips out his phone and pretends to talk to his mom in Yiddish.
Not amused, Chaya takes out her phone and fakes a conversation with her mother… With their “secret” language no longer secret, the men buckle down and answer the neurosurgeon’s barrage of questions — which she of course asks in Yiddish.
Hilarity ensues as Bialik’s character shoots off query after query.
Remember that time when your mom was pressuring you to meet a nice Jewish boy?
Well, now you can laugh about your past experiences and reminisce with this Jewish web comedy series called “Yid Life Crisis.” The latest episode, which stars Mayim Bialik, is right in time for Valentine’s Day.
Chaya comes to the blind date with a long list of questions to ask Leizer.
It’s her way of cutting to the chase and not wasting any of her precious time. I have all the question right off the bat, so a blind date is just a more efficient way of seeing if this is even possible,” Bialik’s character states. When Leizer decides he no longer needs his wingman, he whips out his phone and pretends his mother is calling him.
Step 1 Ask your students to think of different ways of meeting a romantic partner. Step 3 Ask your students to say which way of meeting a new partner is the best and why. Tell them that one student should describe their idea of a dream date while the other student describes their idea of a nightmare date.
Step 5 Get feedback from the whole class on their dream and nightmare dates.
Thankfully, it’s not one of those terribly corny or overly bleak V-Day specials that make you want to vomit–it’s actually pretty intelligent funny–a combination that is a rare find.
