A television show set to launch in England will feature 8 Jewish mothers competing for the title of “Jewish Mum of the Year”.

Each of the contestants will perform tasks designed by the show’s producers, ranging from planning a Bar Mitzvah for 200 guests, to the ultimate task for most Jewish mothers, setting up a Jewish man with a Jewish woman.

The mothers will come from all walks of life, including secular, religious, stay at home, and working professional, and range in age from 40-65.

The first task is the Bar Mitzvah where 4 pairs of mothers will be responsible for setting up different aspects of the Bar Mitzvah celebration.  After two mothers are sent home, 6 remain, and their next task is matchmaking.

“They have two days to find a suitable Jewish boy, groom him, coach him and prepare him to ensure a successful first dinner date,” the program’s information page reads on Channel 4 in England.  “Each boy will get just one course to woo his date and her first impressions will definitely count.”

The remaining 4 mothers will then pair up to plan a bus trip for 72 Jewish seniors, before the final 2 contestants must cook and prepare a Shabbat dinner for family, friends, and surprise guests.

“Jewish Mum of the Year” is scheduled to begin on October 9th.

    Stereotyping Jewish mothers is not entertaining for real Jews and will reinforce the view to goyim. Great!
