“Stay Jewish”

What is your favored salutation?

Tony Soprano, staying Jewish.(Wikipedia)

A New York Times article on email etiquette apprises us of the Internet habit of David Hirshey, an executive at HarperCollins: He “tends to close his e-mails with the words ‘Stay Jewish’—‘though mostly with friends who are Gentiles,’ he added. ‘I find it works best when the person’s last name is something like O’Hara or Soprano.’”

Who has alternatives?

“Good Davening,” perhaps?

“Keep it Semitic”?
