One nearly nude dancer is Israeli, the other is Egyptian. Both are decorated with Jewish symbols in dark blue body paint and sporting yarmulkes and tiny briefs.By 11 p.m. on this particular Saturday in early April, the swanky downtown venue, Slate, is packed with young Jewish guys, almost all sporting dark brown hair and five o’clock shadows. The vibe is one of a typical gay club, but we’re not in Tel Aviv – this is New York and the party is the annual Passover party – this year called HoMoses – thrown by the gay party production company Hebro.
