A post written last week about the Jewish holiday of Sukkot was very successful as it not only appeared here at The Lid and was linked by two great websites. Hot Air and Instapundit.

Most of the comments received praised the piece. However, some of my fellow Jews were upset because when talking about the building of Sukkahs, the three-sided huts used for the holiday, I used the stereotype of Jews being lousy with tools. That paragraph also poked fun at Star Trek fans (who had the same issue with tools as the Jews) and Gentiles-speaking Irish.
The dissenters believed using that one stereotype would make haters believe Jews (and Trekkers) can’t use tools.
