BBC NEWS | UK | ‘Different shades’ of Judaism:

“What I’m most proud of is that I’ve managed to combine being a rabbi with being a father. I’ve seen all my three sons survive being a rabbi’s son.”

Weird, I think this is my old school friend (I think friend; he was a very lonely guy) Yossi’s dad.

There are few harder things in life than introducing yourself, especially in print where mellifluous nuance can turn to indulgent wankery. So. I am definitely a 'writer'. You could also call me an 'artist'. I could probably put the words 'designer' and 'consultant' here too, but they feel crass.

  • No way! Have you heard from Yossi at all? Mr Whittaker liked him. I would have found it easier to talk to him if the air of ‘I don’t care what you think and I’m going to act as eccentrically as I care to’ that he wore as a protective mantle (a good strategy when used parsimoniously) didn’t make him so hard to get to, ie damn hard to communicate with. I still have a CD he lent me. I think he hasn’t forgotten either. But I don’t know how to get to it back to him!

  • Well, it looks like you could send it to this reform synagogue. http://www.mcr-reform.org.uk/default.htmcos that’s where Yossi’s dad is. He was very difficult to get to and I’m not sure the journey was worth it.I’ve not heard from him in *ages*. But then, I’ve not spoken to anyone from school apart from you, Chris and occaisionally Pez in a lonnnng time.
