An Odd Piece of Confection
22 December 2013 | by See all my reviews

A Jewish girl in the community must find a Jewish guy, which she does in Daniel J. Travanti (listed as Travanty here).

But it seems he got drunk and tried to force her to listen to poetry, which she didn't approve of.

This makes for an odd episode. I really don't recall much about the girl, Amanda, objecting to Sullivan being Jewish (his mother remarried after the death of his father, I believe). She seemed to object more to the Jewish girl, which I didn't quite follow. It didn't seem to stand out.

Lotte then becomes ill and suddenly the Jewish girl has to be in charge. Only she knew what to do, so this was objectionable somewhere or other.

Not a lot of it was making sense.

A final confrontation was brought about with Amanda not liking the Jewish girl, but again, it wasn't very clear. I think there was something about Amanda objecting to her only after she learned she was Jewish.

It all caused me to recall when Nellie Oleson married on Little House On The Prairie and because her husband was Jewish, Rev. Alden couldn't perform the ceremony, Doc Baker had to perform the union.

In this instance, because sea captain Clancey apparently performed the marriages on his boat, but he wasn't overly religiously affiliated, he was likewise obligated to perform the Jewish ceremony. THAT was interesting.
