Getting rid of the "Shiksa"
3 October 2014 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

The victim in this Criminal Intent story is the Catholic wife of a Jewish kosher foods magnate Ned Eisenberg. In the community she married into she's known as a Shiksa, a woman who is not Jewish.

Ned Eisenberg who on the other Law And Order franchises plays rather oily defense attorneys plays this man who is on the one hand a pretty rich man, president of his own company. But he's totally under the domination of his mother Linda Lavin. She's a Jewish mother on steroids.

When the wife and mother of his children is killed Vincent Donofrio and Kathryn Erbe go to work. They look in a few places before coming up with the right suspect.

The reasons here would make no sense to anyone except if they were Jewish and most likely orthodox. Still it's a frightening story about how twisted religion can sometimes make you.
