A wise Israeli friend tells me Kate Middleton’s mother Carole Goldsmith has a Jewish mother. By Jewish law, if Mrs. Middleton’s mom’s Jewish, Mrs. Middleton’s Jewish.
And since Kate’s mom’s Jewish, Kate herself’s Jewish.
Thus Kate’s offspring will be Jewish. I doubt the royals are smiling about this squiggle.
Odds are that one of Kate’s children will one day sit on the throne of England. My Russian Jewish grandfather used to say smiling with deep appreciation, “Something new in America.”
Grandpop, are you smiling about something new in England.
