Too late indeed

Naomi Riley in the Wall Street Journal:

According to a report in Jewish Week, some rabbis are encouraging their congregants to see "Keeping Up With the Steins" because they approve of its last reel. Benjamin's father plans to hold his bar mitzvah at Los Angeles's Dodger Stadium -- from which guests would take home their own major-league uniforms as party favors. Benjamin, in the end, rejects the idea and invites everyone over to his house to listen to a Klezmer band and eat his grandmother's brisket. It's all very touching, but it's also too little, too late.

My younger brother recently attended the bar mitzvah of a certain celebrity's son. It was held at...Dodger Stadium.
