Let's go back to my last point....

Yes, I slapped my face when I saw the breaking news on Weiner, a Jewish congressman from Queens and Brooklyn. He cheated on his wife, Huma Abedin, of 11 months. At least Abedin, who I believe, can stand on her own. She rode to her own success thanks to Hillary Clinton and only met Weiner in 2008 during Clinton's campaign for presidency. So I'm not too terribly worried about her as some other women who depend their entire lives on their husbands.

Now, let's go back to that point that I made in my last blog post. Power can do harm to men's reputations and self-control. And the likelihood of powerful male leaders being Jewish are rather high. Jewish women cannot certainly make generalizations and give up finding a Jewish man in power who won't cheat. There are plenty of wonderful Jewish men who were raised by good mames but the naughty ones just make the headlines.

If their mames can't get in their heads to be that "nice Jewish boy," then these men need to take a course on ethics.

What's even more squeamish though is that the "other" women were Jewish as well.... Are Jewish communities doing enough to teach morality?

I have to tell myself it's only the minority who do wrong things, not the majority but it's the public image that Jews should be conscious of.
