I was minding my own business standing in front of the Mitzvah Tank taking a cell phone picture to send to a friend of mine who is a huge fan of the MT when one of them saw me and asked, "are you Jewish?"
"No," I said. I really hate lying to these guys, but if I had said "yes" they'd have had me wrapped up in tefillin and davening just like the other dude I saw all wrapped up as I made my initial approach to take the cell phone picture.
"Can you take our picture?" one of them asked, noticing the YashMat hanging around my neck. This was the second of two shots, with them in slightly better focus than the first. I do like how Schneerson is peeking over their shoulders. Big Rebbe is Watching YOU!
I almost gave them a card, but stopped myself because if I'd have done that they'd have seen my last name and would have known they were lied to.
I'm sorry guys. Even though I was a star bar-mitzvah student with all the best intentions it didn't really carry over into my adult life. But who knows, maybe I'll catch up to you guys someday.
