Plenty of Jews eat pork, only the ones who keep kosher don't. That said - and this has nothing to do with Jillian - you rarely see pork at Jewish weddings, just because, well, people often think it's weird. But I don't think that has anything to do with anything, to be honest.What does everyone think about the fact that Jill said her dream wedding would be "perogies and ham"? Most Jewish people don't eat pork.
I mentioned this immediately after the conference call but think it got lost in the fray. I actually thought this was a very telling comment in terms of what Jillian's comfort zone is with her F1 and future in-laws/family. I could NEVER see Kip's mom in this situation, and as I said in my previous post, I very much see the Rosenthals as a get-married-at-the-Rittenhouse type of family. (Which isn't a dig, I come from one of those families too.) I just DO NOT see either of these two guys (or their families) getting down to a honky-tonk band in the Canadian mountains with her Aunt's cabbage. And I thought this demonstrated a bit of what Jillian was looking for (consciously or not).Many Jews don't either. And even if they did, I cannot picture Reid's family sitting out in the middle of some field eating ham and cabbage roles. I can picture Ed's family there, not Reid's or Kiptyn's.
