And where are we now?
An interesting article from the Milwaukee Journal (or whatever it calls itself these days), via Get Religion. Our recent trip to the north woods reminded me of the kids having once seen some Hasidim walking downtown in Highland Park and remarking, "Look, Amish guys." On a later Wisconsin road trip, we stopped at the WalMart in Tomah (now forever in our lexicon as the Amish WalMart) and some young scholar pointed out the large number of ultra-Orthodox Jews in the store. Every trip out of the neighborhood being a teachable moment.
(Not that staying in the 'hood isn't teachable, too. More later. When I've collected myself.)
