Nice Jewish guy with an interesting and eclectic background looking for an interesting and intelligent woman. Raised in an orthodox, yiddish speaking immigrant family. Studied in Yeshiva and got caught up in the Left while at college. Became involved in radical politics, became counsel to a Congressman, went on to become the lobbyist for a large progressive union and then ran the Washington office for a major liberal Jewish organization. Left the Left when its dislike of Israel became too much. I am one of the few people who has been published by the Left (Dissent) and the Right (National Review & the American Spectator). It happened almost twenty years apart. Versed in Torah and Marx (Karl and Groucho). Now I am solid, stable, but not stuffy, government attorney, who follows the stock market. Could not have made this journey without an inquisitive mind and an irreverent sense of humor. I have been a devoted single parent, as I got custody of my son, who about to graduate from college. I keep kosher in the traditional sense. I eat fish and dairy out.
