Thanks for the Good Wishes Juggling Frogs!

Juggling frogs just added a post entitled The Making of a Millionaire, about our Joey.
She has a writing style that is so enjoyable - tying up all loose ends as she formulates every post.
It might be interesting to note that we are very lucky to live in a society, even though we are in golus, that is understanding to the requirements of an Orthodox Jew.
Joey was speaking to his producer yesterday, prepping her among other things, to the fact that he is unable to have any physical contact with Meredith Vierra, the hostess of the show, and the producer told him that she herself is Jewish and has a cousin who is orthodox, so she understands him completely. She even had the sensitivity to offer him if he would be more comfortable, to switch to a male producer. He told her that this was unnecessary, but it was very thoughtful of her nonetheless.

And why isn't someone from German extraction allowed to have physical contact (I assume you mean a handshake) with the producer? Surely you know that the custom of Orthodox men and women in Germany was to shake hands.

If you are familiar with the show you would be aware that there is quite a bit more physical contact than handshaking going on, especially if the contestant wins larger sums of money.

I apologize then for jumping on you. It's just that people abandoning their valid traditions drives me nuts. My apologies again and I hope your son did very well.
