The Best Advice From Your Jewish Dads


We love to joke about all the quirks associated with Jewish dads — their early airport arrivals, their (sometimes bad) jokes, their often unique fashion sense. But in our experience, when we ask our Jewish dads to get serious for a moment, they surprise us every time. We surveyed our Instagram followers and asked for the best advice from the Jewish dads in their life and their responses were, well…great, honestly. May we all learn from their wisdom.
