First to Review

As I continue to fill in the blank spots of my religious past (and present and future for that matter), we come to the t.u. Hillel. As a proud Aggie, I would occasionally visit the "tea sips" in Austin and check in with my good friends at Hillel. Seriously though, Austin is a great city in so many ways!

The 3 most interesting Hillel memories:

A person from the Israeli embassy telling our group adamantly that his government had absolutely no role in training members of the then Shah of Iran's secret service (!!!).

Dating Sharon L. who I ended up running into her a few years later at a Bucks County (Pennsylvania) shul with her husband. And on top of that, her husband worked for the same company and location that I did. Small world.....

Going to a Kinky Friedman (and the Texas Jew boys) concert fundraiser with Sharon L. Kinky was shit faced drunk in fine Jerry Jeff Walker style that night. At times, the Rabbi had to hold him up or retrieve him from back stage. What was also interesting was his "impressive" repertoire of anti-Semitic jokes. Yet, if I had lived in Texas, I would have voted for him as Governor! His books are very good too.
