On Motzei shabbos, the Chicago Jewish community was privileged to hear Alan Veingrad, a former NFL player, who became a Baal Teshuva (newly observant Jew). He spoke about how the lessons he learned as a football player were valuable in becoming observant. Many thanks to the Hebrew Theological College www.htc.edu or the Skokie Yeshiva for this wonderful opportunity.

Oh, by the way, when Ahmenijad wants to come back to America to speak on a campus, I have a perfect place for him, University of Michigan at Dearborn. Who says neo-cons aren't committed to free speech?
