Well, I hope you’ve brought your A-game, because we ladies of the Hebrew persuasion won’t settle for much less than your absolute best, and yes, we are watching closely!

So, if you find yourself enamored with a Jewess, here's everything you need to know about loving a Jewish woman.

But I do not really want to see a book with this title, by this publisher on the shelves of my nearest bookstore.

To me, it's a promotion of sorts, an invitation for non-Jewish women to date Jewish men because..course, Jewish men supposedly have wonderful reputations, ie. Read this excerpt and make your own judgement call.

She waxes poetic about why Jewish men are great boyfriend material: They're smart, entrepreneurial, generous, doting, and funny. Grish, a shiksa (non-Jewish woman) and founding fashion editor at Sports Illustrated Women , offers a playful little guide to understanding and snagging the perfect Jewish male. Kristina Grish is the author of three books, including Simon Spotlight Entertainment's "Boy Vey!

The Shiksa's Guide to Dating Jewish Men." She's currently a contributing editor to "Marie Claire" and has written for "Cosmopolitan, Men's Health, Teen Vogue, Outside, " and "Vibe, " among others.

The good news is that if you're dating a Jew, he's likely either Reform or simply acculturated, and thus, open-minded about mixing it up a bit.

(Unless conversion is your idea of a hot first-date topic, don't waste your time with Conservative and Orthodox observances.) Whether your love mensch is super religious is seldom the issue.

“Throughout recent history, the sexual heroes have been the Clark Gables, Humphrey Bogarts, Gregory Pecks, Robert Redfords,” reads the foreword of the book, which I have on loan from a friend’s personal irony library. It’s divided into subsections (“The Jewish Man and Things,” “When He Takes You Home for Dinner”), each of which contains a list of observations on the topic, usually starting with “he” (“He folds, never crumples, the paper”).

“Now, today, the Elliot Goulds, George Segals, Dustin Hoffmans herald the beginning of a new super sex star: the Jewish man.” It’s basically a humor book (we’ll get to that), but the core premise—we heart Jewish men, warts and all—is not winking or sarcastic; it’s entirely serious. Some are straightforward (“He uses hand lotion”); some have embellishments that make them less unfunny than they could be (“He has never washed his own clothes [even in the Army]”); some achieve the spare, abstruse genius of a Zen koan (“He is aged 30 to 55 whether he is or he isn’t”).

Snapshots from my dating past: The litigator who knew the Metropolitan Museum of Art by heart; the writer whose dad was a blacklisted actor; the sports marketer who moonlighted as a drummer in a salsa band; the stockbroker who retired young and toured the barbeque and banjo joints of the Smokies in a rusty Cadillac.
