As cute as this might seem to some of you on the surface, my inclination is to believe that nonsense like this is taking things a bit too far. I mean, at what point do we cease to honor our traditions and instead begin to cheapen them through caricature? Do jokes like this Bark Mitzvah and 50 Shekel help bring us closer to our identities as Jews, or do they merely serve to marginalize our identification to the point where we begin to perpetuate our own stereotypes?
