Which Jew Will Draper Seduce?

Gaming the upcoming season of ‘Mad Men’

Print Email
Don Draper and Dr. Faye Miller.(Mad Men Wiki)

In Season 1, it was department store heiress Rachel Menken Katz. In Season 2 (the season that isn’t very good), it was Bobbie Barrett, the wife and manager of the comedian. And, of course, last season, it was Dr. Faye Miller. It’s a fact: Don Draper, whose creator is one Matthew Weiner, has a thing for Jewish women (and who could blame him!). So which, or which type, will Draper bed this season, which begins Sunday evening on AMC?

5:1 A proto-hippie chick with a conspicuously Jewish name (it is 1966).

7:1 Jane Siegel-Sterling.

10:1 Gloria Steinem.

12:1 An Israeli.

15:1 Rachel Menken Katz again.

20:1 Felicia Cohn Montealegre, a.k.a. Mrs. Leonard Bernstein.

25:1 A character not-so-loosely based on Barbra Streisand.

35:1 A character not-so-loosely based on Susan Sontag.

100:1 None: after all, he’s a happily married man again!

500:1 Foreign Minister Golda Meir.

Tablet is committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing on Jewish life, all free of charge. We take pride in our community of readers, and are thrilled that you choose to engage with us in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse). Starting today, then, we are asking people who'd like to post comments on the site to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping us bring you the ambitious journalism that brought you here in the first place.

Readers can still interact with us free of charge via Facebook, Twitter, and our other social media channels, or write to us at Each week, we’ll select the best letters and publish them in a new letters to the editor feature on the Scroll.

We hope this new largely symbolic measure will help us create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all of our readers, and, as always, we thank you deeply for your support.

This is a vulgar post below the high standards of Tablet Magazine. Also: 1:4 a character not so loosely based on your momma. Snap.

Jess says:

If ONLY Rachel Menken would come back. The epsiodes with the two of them were some of the most evocative in the show.

AMC knows its demographics :)

Being an Army dserter, Don should concern himself about being sent to Vietnam or an Army Brig, rather than which Jew to screw next. Each season his secret life is revealed to more people with Vietnam heating up,but I did like Rachel.

Chuck Sheiko says:

I’m sure your title and subject were vetted by Josef Goebbels and A. C. Chamberlain. Since you’re Jikes, I guess you slip under the ADL threshhold.
