"Ad D'lo Yada" Rhymes With...

...Pina Colada.

Thanks to Rabbi Yaakov Moshe Poupko for that wonderfully giggle-inspiring realization. It gets me every year.

And thanks to Ezra for the above picture, which was taken on what was probably one of the best Purims I have ever had, (holycrapitwas) 7 years ago in the village of Bat Ayin, Gush Etzion, Israel. The guy on the lower left is Rabbi Natan Greenberg, who, along with the freiliche Rabbi in the center, co-conspired to isolate and engineer a micro-strain of super-Ba'ale Teshuva who, once properly indoctrinated, would stealthily infiltrate the teeming masses of society, germinating tiny (but highly effective) seeds of tikkun olam everywhere. They made us solemnly pledge, all of us, that Purim day sitting in the sandbox in the R. Natan's front yard. Call it zany, call it cultish, call it weird science... but it worked. And it was 100% Kool-Aid free!

Baruch HaShem for that brilliant photo!! The next year (or the same year, if ChazMav's math is off), I threw that very same Rav Daniel out of the window of Rav Natan's house. It was one of the highest spiritual moments I have ever had, and defines my relationship to the entire universe.
