Larry David self loathing Jew

He's a putz. Not only does he crate repulsive skits like this ( let's see hi ridicule religious Muslims ) he works overtime to elect far left Dems who are working no stop to destroy America and Israel.

Too Far

Larry David (the actor, as oposed to the peson), goes too far in his disrespect for Judaisim, making fun of making a blessing on the wine and on a man dropping his yalmuka. Also he shows his selfish self (I know it is an act), by just caring about some amatuer golf game ! He includes alot of deameaning things about Jews, in his Curb Your Enthusiasim series !

Don't jump to Judgement

One thing I notice about these comments is that people are not distinguishing between the real lives of the actors, on the one hand, and the characters that they portray in in the video, on the other. I think it is important to recognize that we have no idea what any of these people actually believe in "real life". I really like this scene--especially the line about "Kofaxing us"--because it brings out some of the issues that both religious and non-religious Jews face. .. .. .. .. when wrestling with our own Jewish identity. These questions about the relationship between identity and external practice, between religion and ethnicity, between self and community, and between self and God, etc.

Amusing clip.. sorta. I'm not even Jewish, yet I can read and G-d says to remember the Sabbath to keep it holy. I believe it. So l do it. end of discussion.
