ABOUT YOU >>>
205 Union St. Up Front
Married? With children?
It's just not possible
Professional Nerd, serving the Jewish Community
What are you most proud of:
Pride is dangerous, I avoid such things
Religious affiliation / observance:
Dati, though you'd not consider me Jewish
Last person / party I voted for:
Obama - hold your comments please
Next person / party I will vote for:
The best man/woman for the job
My history (100 words max):
I was born in the Midwest, educated in the South, moved to New England
Family history (100 words max):
Only a true fan of the patchwork quilt could enjoy my family history. I'm the only Jew in the states who can enjoy a reshika, a matzo ball and matbucha and say it's all home cookin'
If you could have dinner with any person in the world it would be:
At the moment, I would have to say my grandma. Sure there are other impressive figures out there but to me, they are all passable. My grandma will be a part of who I am forever
If you could go anywhere on vacation, it would be:
Tsfat. I probably wouldn't vacate much there, but I'd enjoy every minute of it
Feminine/masculine trait I'd like to have:
I think I have a great balance of traits attributed to the both genders
What angers you:
I can't say that I've ever really been angry, to the degree I've observed in the angry types. I'll change this question to read " What frustrates you? " I'll respond: Driving
What makes you happy:
Sunshine on a cloudy day - a child smiling.
Last book I read was:
1421. Proof that history isn't always to the "winner."
Anything you regret?
Every day, seeing the sadness around me, I regret not doing more to make a difference
My life five years from now:
My life 5 years from now, or 5 minutes, is up to HaShem. I can write for you a litany of my wants and wishes. In the end though, I look back at my life with all its little upsets that changed my course forever and I realize, it's all up to the Divine
You may not like it but I have something controversial to say:
Halacha, like manners, is a structured system given that we could all be comfortable at the same table. Those who use halacha, like manners, as a weapon violate this truth. Halacha is the communal acceptance of the divine law of the universe. Using this system of peace, to its contrary, is not only dichotomous but also a flagrant rape of Torah.
Happiness: 1-10 (10 being the happiest)
