I'm passionate about many religions, and about performances of all kinds, especially theater, and about long conversations. I'm politically minded, especially about the politics of interpreting other people. I like to be in the wilderness, or on my porch, and I like to go swimming or play sports or do dancing. I like to cook, esp. barefoot.I'm interning at an education policy research group this summer and will hopefully be working in a similar job for the coming year. (How do people of all ages, including policy makers, learn what they need to?)I've never found a synagogue I liked, but Jewish ritual can move me like little else. So many of my close friends are Jewish. I'm certain I'll be part of the culture for the rest of my life.
