Close encounters of a Jewish kind


Yesterday at school I was sitting in the Convomall when all of a sudden a completely random guy walked up, handed me a paper plate covered in apple slices, a small plastic container of honey and a chunk of challah and said "happy new year!"

"But I'm a gentile," I said.

"I don't care!" he replied. He walked away beaming and was gone before I could say thank you.

It was actually kind of surreal but who am I to pass up free food?

So yom tov and happy Rosh Hashanah to all you out there.

I like multiculturalism. I really do. It keeps life interesting.
