Anita - it must have been so interesting to talk with the person from Tel Aviv! When I was in high school about half of our immediate group of friends were Jewish and one was from Israel. As soon as high school was over he was going back home to join the army. It was very interesting to the rest of us given how "scary" things were in Israel at the time (and I suppose still are) that he was going to go right into the thick of it. He felt very strongly about it.

I never felt excluded or odd about being a non-Jewish person amongst them. They had their things they did on weekends and I had mine. I was always very interested in their religion.

Skyhaven - there do seem to be many Jewish people around Massachusetts, and I grew up in Connecticut and there were a lot there too. So maybe we are more likely to know Jewish people personally for that reason ...

Morning smile I went to bed at maybe 5:30pm last night and got up about 3am I think. So I think I'm almost coming around to a semi-normal schedule smile Of course my boyfriend is just falling asleep so who knows if we'll ever see each other again ...

I'm in CA and my best friend when I was a kid was Jewish. I have a couple of Jewish neighbors (I don't know them, but they hang Hanukkah decorations smile ) and a work with a few Jewish people as well.

My husband is Jewish. We live in a suburb of Dallas, and there's a synagogue in the next suburb over. He sings in the choir at a large synagogue in Dallas on the Jewish holidays, there is an neighborhood there that has a high percentage of Jewish people. He grew up in New York, where there are many Jewish people, and his parents retired to Florida, also high numbers there.

I love certain Jewish foods, such as lox (smoked salmon) and recently discovered Cinnamon Babka (wish I could get it here in Dallas!!!)

I knew a number of Jewish people in college (in Boston), but I don't think I've met a single one since moving to Colorado a few years ago.
