Don't forget to go back to the Reform shul and tell everyone the Rabbi's wife has dust bunnies under the bed once you're done eating.

Alas, our kind and wise moderator will see this thread soon and pull my witty repetoire, rightfully so, and the hilarity will forever be lost in cyberspace.

I must go do my studies now. This discussion has prompted me to get off of the computer. Thank you for that!

^You've already said once before that you're not coming back to this thread, yet here you are again posting. I'm looking forward to you coming back in here for a third time and using more bad analogies.

I would just like to observe that as someone who works at the University of Pennsylvania, we have a large impressive ultra-modern HILLEL building on campus (that has a Glatt Kosher restaurant inside it no less).

HILLEL serves all Jews, whether or not they are Orthodox, Conservative, Reform or Reconstructionist. Everyone seems to get along, and I have not seen any tensions between the students, faculty and staff that use that building.

From my experience, it is the Conservative and Reform Jews who are the most pro-Zionist and Pro-Israel; the Orthodox seem more focused on studying and praying. These are just my observations, and I don't pretend to make a definitive statement on this issue.

I would agree with that.
