Have you hugged a Jew lately? If not, you might have missed a golden opportunity.
On Monday Feb. 2, Jews around the world embraced each other with outstretched arms and G-rated physical contact. Unfortunately, I kept to myself yesterday and now have wait a whole year to hug a Jew - I might as well be shomer negiah.
From the official facebook page:
