When I started dating my first Jewish boyfriend, though, my mother referred to the pair of us as OTB and NTB--Old Testament Baby and New Testament Baby. Although this witticism embarrassed me to the point of tantrum, I realize now that it reflected what my mother thought of that Jewish boyfriend and those that followed.For her, their religious heritage was in line with the foundation of Christianity, the path that led up to her Protestantism.Aaron drove his own car, long-lashed Jamie played the guitar, neurotic Ben made me laugh, and the Texan football player two-stepped in cowboy boots.

The report doesn’t go into any detail we’d much care about except the epithet thrown: “shiksa,” a word of Yiddish origin, commonly defined as a female gentile, with some undefined measure of pejorative connotation. One day in 2009, in Toronto’s heavily-but-not-exclusively-Jewish 53rd District, one (presumably Jewish) person called another (presumably non-Jewish female) a “shiksa,” an incident that, in the eyes of the offended, the police, and the judiciary, apparently met the qualifications of a hate crime, interpreted by Ontario law as an “offence […] motivated by bias, prejudice or hate, based on the victim’s race, nationality or ethnic origin, language, colour, religion, sex, age, mental or physical disability, sexual orientation, or any other similar factor.” (As neither “non-religion” nor “non-ethnicity” is an option, the incident was classified under “similar factor.”) Which if nothing else is a semantically big deal — isn’t usually thought to be so potent a slur.Indeed, even the pejorative connotation of “shiksa” is fuzzy at best. The word has been in use for so long in so many shifting contexts that your dictionary is useless here even as a spelling guide.( have all had their moment.) The common understanding of “shiksa” (i.e., “a vaguely-pejorative term for gentile woman”) might be technically right, but it sieves out everything interesting about the word: the complex and layered notions of sexuality, its containment of both self-righteousness and self-loathing, the embedded yearning for and guilt of assimilation — in short, all the accrued (if often discarded) cultural valency of a word whose meaning has increasingly strayed from its Old World origin.She never worried that my love for them would seriously jeopardize the nature of my religious observance.After all, she was quick to remind me, Jesus was a Jew.To Avi’s credit, she couldn’t have been nicer during my interview and she admitted from the beginning that she knew her book would be controversial. I chose Roseman as a pen name so that readers would know that the author was Jewish. Also, I have a family friend who wrote a book about getting a guy to marry you and that was her one regret, because professionally it hurt her.
