Man, Ben, I wish I had you as my Hebrew School Teacher. For the life of me I can't remember even being in a class, although I know I must have been because I learned Hebrew (at least how to read and write it, not understand it) and consequently had a Bar Mitzvah.
I'm sure you've read it, or other books like it, but I really enjoyed Jews, God, and History. (actually I listened to the audio book)
There was a car in front of us as I drove Zia to school today with Swiss license plates, so of course I thought of you guys, but figured you probably wouldn't have driven back here to visit :)
