Hard of hearing

At a Chabad House once, I was speaking with a very cute, old man who came for services.
When I asked him where he was from originally, he answered, "Portland."
Hmmm. I would have guessed something more like... Minsk, or Tashkent. Portland is nice, too.
But I knew of two, so I asked, "Oregon, or Maine?"
Then he explained to me, "No, Poland!"

Happy Birthday

I'm 24, ka"h.
Everyone should have the best brachos, to the fullest extent, and to be revealed in the most open way.
