The Jewish Chris Rock

I have often told my wife that I always thought that I could be the Jewish Chris Rock. Not a huge fan but I always appreciated the fact that Rock not only makes fun of everything around him but he has no qualms about taking on his own culture as well as making fun of himself.

I know that I can be a bit hard to take sometimes, just ask my friends and family, but I am just as comfortable making fun of myself. As for people, one of my favorite expressions is “it’s Jews like them that give Jews like me a bad name.” I mean we have enough problems from the world around us without all the infighting that goes go between the reform jews and the conservative jews and the orthodox jews, not to mention the cults and the sex…I mean sects.  What’s wrong with you people?

As I write this, I am at my parents house in their Florida shtetl.  1600 units, 1596 owned by Jews, the other 4 for the Chinese families who make dinner on Sunday night.


About IraSez

I am the owner of Monarch Communications, a graphic design/advertising/website design firm in Millburn, NJ. You can take a look at some of our work at I started IraSez at the urging of my wife, a couple of friends and several facebook friends who actually encouraged me to write a book. They think I'm funny but some of my latest blogs have covered some rather somber topics. In my spare time, I run the local SU alumni club. I'm in the 9th year of a 3 year term or as us SU grads called "fuzzy math." I'm SU '82, wife is SU '83, daughter is SU '11, son is SU '14, even my nephew goes to SU. So yes, we bleed Orange. I like to play golf, watch the same movies over and over, and take long walks with my dog on the trails in South Mountain Reservation behind Old Short Hills. If you see a guy wearing something with an SU logo chasing after a dog named Cosmo, that's me!

    you’re softening up Ira my dear. But as you get more comfortable you’ll be back to the harsher you. Love your writing tho and it’s totally appropriate for blogging. Save the harsh stuff for FB
