You’ve watched on these pages as I get all down on aspects of the Jewish community, maybe in the same way that Park Slope residents get unnerved by the shortcomings of their hood (baby stroller traffic jams, gentrification, etc.). So it’s nice every now and then when events conspire to somehow bring out the best in everyone.

I’m guessing that when Rabbi Bachman stood on the steps and blew his Jew-horn, it probably struck some divinely-branded electricity into these haterfolk…

These moments, where Jews represent themselves by acknowledging their interdependence with a larger community, seem so much more relevant than the inward-looking networking cocktails, cholents, Jewish singles events, and falafel noshes of yesteryear. I’m only sorry that it seemed to take equal-opportunity hate to bring out equal-opportunity love, but perhaps this can serve as a wake-up call.
