Landtsmen and Great Music

There's a "game" called "Jewish Geography," in which strangers, neighbors etc. discover that they have some place in common.  A couple of weeks ago, I discovered by chance (of course) that a young man who owns or runs a business that supplies to Yafiz grew up near my childhood home, Bayside, NY, though a full generation later.  It has created a bond between us.  Davka, also because of that neighborhood, I am also a landtsman with someone who married our son-in-law's cousin.  Yes, the new landtsman knows him, too.

At the NGO Monitor's book-launching this week at the Begin Center, we were treated to some great music, because Prof. Alan Dershowitz and Bernie Marinbach are landtsmen.
