Police Officers and other Tidbits
Some miscellaneous items:
- One morning this week I was looking for a parking spot in the industrial zone, and I finally parked my car in a place of questionable legality. I wasn't sure if it was okay, but then I noticed a police officer in his car. So I walked over to his car, knocked on the window and asked if it was okay to park there. He rolled down his window and apologetically gestured that he didn't know and couldn't talk - because he had his Tefillin on and he was in the middle of davenning!
- Kudos to Daniel Goldman for taking a public stand about Rav Druckman. See the article here. There will be significant further developments within a week, thanks to the efforts of a number of prominent US rabbis.
- Change in my travel plans: I am available in the NJ/NY area as scholar-in-residence for Shabbos February 23. If you're interested, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
