In a 1995 lecture on Exodus 5, Dennis Prager says: The word for servant and the word for slave is the same, which is probably why to this day that Jews don’t like to be servants because they think it is slavery. Did you ever meet a Jewish waiter? Jews don’t wait.
That and the Chosen People notion are the reasons why Jews don’t want to serve anybody.
John emails: That has to be the most retarded thing I’ve ever heard second hand from Dennis Prager. I know dozens of Jews who worked as waiters while doing other things (acting, music, college). Including very traditional Jews.
Also, the only people who believe that Jews walk around thinking about being the Chosen People are apparently non-Jews, and apparently, former Adventist converts.
