May you grow so rich that your widow’s second husband is thrilled they repealed the estate tax.

May God give you a daughter-in-law who is as kind as she is beautiful, as patient as she is rich, as wise as she is devoted, a virtuous woman in every way. And then may a ballot initiative invalidate her marriage to your fat lump Rebecca.

May the secretary your husband is schtupping depend on Planned Parenthood for her birth control.

May you spend your whole life supporting and voting for and sending money to Israel, and may you one day be actually forced to move there.

May you have a rare disease and need an operation that only one surgeon in the world, the winner of the Nobel Prize for Medicine, is able to perform.And may he be unable to perform it because he doesn’t take your insurance. And may that Nobel Laureate be your son.

May you find yourself insisting to a roomful of skeptics that your great-grandmother was "legitimately" raped by Cossacks.

May you have a large store, and have it all dismantled by vulture capitalists.

May you have a hundred houses, and in every house a hundred rooms, and in every room twenty beds, and then may you fall behind on just one of your mortgage payments and have the bank repossess everything.

May you live to a ripe old age, and may the only people who come visit you be Mormon missionaries.

May you make a fortune, and lose it all in one of Sheldon Adelson's casinos.

May your grandchildren baptize you after you’re dead.

May the state of Arizona expand their definition of "suspected illegal immigrants" to "anyone who doesn't hunt."

Why would that be considered a curse?

Ayn Rand: “I have no faith at all, just convictions.”

Ayn Rand: “I don’t approve of religion.”

There are many other quotes regarding Rand's opposition to religion. Thus, it seems that the above would be a curse to you.

And yet she was virulently anti-communist, pro free-market capitalism, and a great believer in individual rights. She's seems to be very popular with the libertarian wing of the conservative movement.

I consider myself somewhat of a fan. As a (small "L") libertarian, I think she should be free to spouse whatever opinions she likes. If I agree with 9, and disagree with 1, that doesn't make me think less of her.

Even great people have foibles and sometimes severe character defects.

MLK was a philanderer who regularly cheated on his wife. I seem to recall that he also plagiarized portions of his doctoral dissertation. Does that mean he didn't make great contributions to American society?

So you'd be happy if your son chose to highlight Ayn Rand as his role model, in his coming-out Bar Mitzva speech, even though she was a vocal atheist. That would be very open minded.

Personally, I find that Ayn Rand, like Karl Marx, was an ideologue who had some appealing ideas. In both cases, the ideology as a whole crashes and burns spectacularly in real life.

No, but only because a proper Bar Mitzvah speech should be divrei Torah.

The original question said nothing about a role model.

If he gave a book report in school, and described her as a genius, that wouldn't bother me.

Okay, so now go back and read the "curse":

May your child give his Bar Mitzvah speech on the genius of Ayn Rand.

I know what it said. But wouldn't it make more sense if the subject were some well-known liberal?

"May your child give his Bar Mitzvah speech on the genius of Jimmy Carter."

Doesn't that work better?

If the subject was "Curses for Democratic Jews", perhaps.

Democratic, Liberal, and proud of it.

Perhaps we're talking at cross purposes, but your comment doesn't make any sense to me.

Wouldn't liberals be more offended to have their child speak on the genius of some conservative, and vice-versa?

Perhaps Carter was a poor choice because even Jewish Democrats don't view him favorably.

But wouldn't it be a curse for a Democratic Jewish parent for their son to give a speech on the genius of Ronald Reagan, and a curse for a Republican for their child to give a speed on the genius of, say, Bill Clinton?

I don't think you get the gist of that web site. But hey, it's just a joke. Lighten up. The horse is dead.
