We Are Kind Of A Big Deal

 It's always a pleasant surprise when the Rabbi and Miss Sarah organize guest speakers for the Sunday JLI meetings. New people lead to new stories, lending themselves to newly acquired knowledge and overwhelming wisdom from said knowledge. This particular Sunday morning, however, the fatigue-plagued students were greeted by a smiling face belonging to a Professor. His name escapes me, initially because I'm running on two hours of sleep, and secondly because I was in the restroom upon his arrival. I do remember most everything he spoke about, however. His entire lecture can be summed up in one snazzy phrase; We are Kind of a big deal. We being the Jews, of course. The professor whipped out all of these fascinating statistics regarding the Jews as a people, all of them leaving our mouths agape with incredulous looks plastered on our faces. Did you know that 1/3 of all American doctors are Jewish? How about the fact that 1/2 of American Lawyers are Jews as well? The humorous aspect about it is that we only make up about 2% of the American population. He then went on to discuss the contributions of the Israelis on a global level. Inventions and innovative technologies like the cellphone were made right there in Tel Aviv. This all blew me away. I mean, I already knew it, but how can the world even deny the evidence-backed claim that Jews Rock??I really enjoyed the Professor's teachings.

On another note entirely, I'm still working on the Kosher club and the Positive energy seminar, but this week has been so backed up with school testing. But worry not, my fellow readers- your dear author will do as promised. Until next Sunday!
