A couple of years ago a patient of mine and her son became interested in Judaism. Despite my lack of encouragement they decided to convert. Somehow they found their way to the local Reform Temple, did whatever study program is offered there, had the holy mayim sprinkled on them and became Reform Jews.
If I ever had my doubts about the comprehensiveness of the Reform education they received, they were completely confirmed a few months later during a routine appointment.
The patient had been noticing some worsening of her chronic back pain but insisted that she had done nothing to aggravate it. I agreed that a spine X-ray would be in order to ensure that nothing sinister was affecting the bones. I told her that the results would most likely be okay and she smiled and said "Well, I'll cross my fingers just in case."
There was a brief pause and then I said "You know you're not supposed to do that anymore, right?"
