Satiric songwriter Lauren Mayer (that’s me and I’m Jewish which is why I can make fun of Jews) tackles food ("Latkes, Schmatkes"), religious differences ("Eight Is Better Than One"), being upstaged by Christmas ("Jew-In-A-Gentile-World Blues") and more, from the unique perspective of an opinionated Jewish mother. (And yes, I realize that's redundant.)

"Latkes, Schmatkes!" is the perfect gift for Jewish people, Jewish wanna-be’s, and everyone who would rather laugh than cry during the holiday season.
