Book Synopsis



From the viral social media account @oldjewishmen comes a hilarious and irresistible guide and perfect gift for every OJM and the people who put up with him

Here is a humorous, surprisingly stylish, and crotchety celebration of a most fascinating group of fellas: Old Jewish Men. In this essential guide, readers learn how to eat, dress, get around town, and schmooze like a seasoned OJM. Ever wonder why Old Jewish Men eat so much cottage cheese and melon? If Larry David and Bernie Sanders have the same barber? Who is the next great up-and-coming OJM? (NOTE: You don't need to be old, Jewish, or a man--it's a lifestyle.) Plus, there's helpful jargon, detailed deli and coffee shop rundowns, and the ten OJM archetypes, from New York Schlubs to Tough Guys to Grumpy Intellectuals. A perfect gift for any Jewish dad/granddad/uncle/brother or anybody who likes a healthy shmear of classic Jewish humor, the book is full of hilarious full-color illustrations and chapters including: How to Exist in This Fakakta World; The Art of the Schmooze; How to Live Forever; and King of the Temple.



Review Quotes




"Hilarious and insightful. Noah Rinsky, old beyond his years and funny as hell, nails the essence of what it means to be an Old Jewish Man--from the joys of the deli counter to the art of the schmooze and the pleasures of the snooze." --Bob Mankoff, former cartoon editor, The New Yorker

"A holistic guide on how to kvetch and cough your way into one's wonder years. In these pages you'll learn how to properly donate a museum wing, tell a joke as dated as a 70-year-old gefilte fish, and retire comfortably to, of course, Boca. Just always bring a sweater." --Jacob Gallagher, fashion columnist, The Wall Street Journal
