No, it's not that I do not know how to spell. But "passionate scholar" is seventeen characters long, and we are allowed only fifteen. This passionate scholar, then, is passionate not only about his work and the life of the mind, but about life in general. I teach Jewish Studies in a post-secondary Educational Institution in Montreal and am a rather well known and well esteemed scholar in my field. I enjoy reading both fiction and non-fiction, listening to classical music, going to concerts, theatre, movies, and the ballet, blogging, swimming and biking, and spending time in the company of the right woman. I guess I'm a bit of an intellectual snob, but also know how to make fun of myself and not take myself too seriously. Women find me funny and entertaining. I hope you will too.
