I’m An Orthodox Jew – My Brother-In-Law Is A Fundamentalist Christian – Shawarma Brought Us Together

So back when I lived in an ultra-Orthodox suburb of New York City, my brother-in-law, a devout Fundamentalist Christian from upstate New York came to live with us. As you could imagine, these are two very different backgrounds. Even so, they aren’t as different as you might reckon. No group is so closely politically aligned as Fundamentalists, and they have a like of Israel as the Orthodox as well.

My brother-in-law was just finishing college at the time when I started chatting with him about working for my technology team as a designer. We started chatting about it on a Tuesday – by Thursday his bags were packed and he was at my front door!

As he was more used to the pace that upstate New York allows, he found a whole world of difference at this quick paced startup. We were both pretty well stressed out, and needed to unwind from time to time, playing ping pong or whatever time would allow. Excellent times…

So, what really brought us together the most? Shawarma.

(Yes, I’m still ranting about Shawarma, touted the Middle East’s version of the taco a whole day after the last post.) There was an outstanding place near our house that served the best shawarma in town, with very generous parts. In fact, there was really a point that he said that he was going to convert just that he could eat it every day! I told him that he could eat it anyway and that probably wouldn’t go very far with his parents :)

Alas, he’s went on. But I’ll save him some shawarma for his next visit.

As a native New Yorker, I’ve always dreamed of traveling to Israel, but have not yet had the opportunity. For now, I’ll continue to blog about fascinating travel tips to Israel, its cuisine, Jewish life, and other random musings.
