To date or not to date

Last week at FNL, ATID Director Stacey Zackin announced, “Next month at Friday Night Live, the editor of The Jewish Journal will be here to discuss dating.”


Not that we wouldn’t be elated to hear the adorable Rob Eshman disseminate dating advice, but folks—the man is married, to a Rabbi, and hasn’t had a date in 20 years. I then thought, maybe she forgot to say “religion editor” and meant Amy Klein, prolific writer and occasional singles columnist, will be divvying up dating tips for the greater good—-a wise choice considering blogger Luke Ford has publicly admitted to fantasizing about her.

But then I got an email.

Stacey wrote that they were going to postpone the dating topic and have Rob in conversation with Rabbi Wolpe on “Why be Jewish?” Now that sounds like a topic “Robb-etzin” and Rabbi Wolpe could expound upon.

So if you’re curious about the role Challah should be playing in your life, don’t miss next month’s FNL on August 10 for your chance to slip in dating questions during the Q&A.
