Bagel Jews.

Well, he came from a generation of Jewish academics in the 50’s and 60’s that were very Jewish culturally but very secular. Other examples would be like Philip Roth or Woody Allen.  They’re intensely Jewish but not very religious. If anything they make fun of religion.  That’s how he was. We would do the holidays and stuff sometimes, but it was always slightly ironic. I think he had spiritual values but he didn’t really buy the whole religion thing.
