It's time for another installment of our "Ask Jew or Not Jew" feature, where young readers write in for advice. Here's a letter we recently received.
Dear Jew or Not Jew, I want to be a Formula 1 racer, but my parents say it's too dangerous! Can you tell them they are crazy? — Kyle Rabinowicz, 12, Boulder, Colorado
Your parents might have a point. You know who was probably the most famous Jewish Formula 1 driver? Peter Revson. He was an heir to a cosmetic fortune... and died in a crash. And then there was Francois Cevert, an heir to a jewelry fortune... who died in a crash. Currently, Formula 1 has only one Jewish driver, Lance Stroll, who hasn't died... yet, but is an heir to a fashion fortune.
In summary, yes, it's pretty dangerous, but even if you don't end up dying... you better be an heir to a some kind of a fortune to give it a whirl. Maybe you should consider NASCAR?
Listen to your parents,
Jew or Not Jew.
