By now you know that one of the most common ways we profile people for this website is by displaying our surprise that someone is Jewish. Or half-Jewish. Or, infrequently, not Jewish.
This is not one of those profiles.
For sex therapist Dr. Ruth is definitely Jewish. There is no surprise there. What is astonishing, however, is that she used to be a sniper.
That's right, a sniper. With guns. Real guns. In a war. In a real war. Fighting for Israel. Dr. Ruth. All four and a half feet of her.
How did she transition to sex therapy? Beats us. We still can't get over our surprise.
Dr. Ruth? A sniper?
