Thank You to the Sudaks

I would like to publicly thank Rabbi Bentzi & Mrs. Rochie Sudak of the American Friends of Lubavitch in Washington, DC, for hosting me at their home for Shabbat [sabbath] dinner. I learned about topics ranging from the origins of the name "Cohen," to the nest-building habits of birds in Africa, to the pros and cons of publicly-financed education, to the theological fallacies of the Neturei Karta (a small Jewish sect known for it's anti-Zionist protests that recently sent representatives to a Holocaust-denial conference in Iran).

It was a wonderful experience: the atmosphere was warm and inviting, the food fantastic, and I met a lot great people.
