Should challah have raisins?
Never! Except for that holiday where it is supposed to have rasins in it. It’s all about tradition, right?

Smooth or Chunky Peanut Butter?
Smooth.

Favorite dish your mom/grandmother makes.
My grandmother’s Matzoh Ball soup. She passed away a few years ago and I still dream of the soup that I will never have again. My mother was denied the recipe and although she has put an enormous effort into duplicating it, recreating that magical concoction still eludes her.

Jewish superhero by night, what by day?
A scratching post for my children.

Where could we find you on a friday night?
6th and I probably, with the creators of this site.

What’s the longest drive you’ve ever taken?
A three day road trip through Central Australia’s Northern Territory from Cairns to Alice Springs. Imagine nothing for three days but the occasional farm that spans hundreds of miles and some random Dingos and kangaroos. But camping out at Uluru and feeding a kangaroo named Mary some beer in a coffee cup made it totally worth it. Never have I wanted to take a kangaroo back on a plane to America with me so badly

What’s your favorite Passover candy?
Is this a trick question?

Where can we find you on a Friday night?
Usually enjoying the spiritual blessings of every soul-loving bite of the Kabbalah Cook’s food (trademark , JK) and the company of my fellow young DC Jews. If that option is not available, I now peruse gatherdc.org for contingency plans. Thank you, gents.

What is the best thing you have done on a Sunday morning?
Stop and ponder the meaning of “Sunday morning.” I am a slave to my perceptions of reality including time and space and wonder what else, if at all, is out there. As far as something I can put on the ol’ resume, I would have to say running any of my four half marathons.

Where in the world is the most beautiful sunset?
That’s easy. Jerusalem in the Yemin Moshe/Mishkanot Ha’ananim neighborhood overlooking the Old City. Nothing will ever beat that.

What is your favorite Bond Movie?
Casino Royale… Daniel Craig rocks as Blonde Bond
