It's the day before Thanksgiving and things are slow... As I took out my lunch and patted my ever-increasing stomach, I remembered reading this article on Aish.com a few years ago. At the time, I nearly choked when I read this sentence:
I know a number of rabbis who have memberships at the gym and work out on a regular basis.I know many, many rabbis. But I don't know a single rabbi with a gym membership, much less one who actually uses that membership. Granted, people don't generally advertise such things. But honestly, come on! Look around you, for crying out loud.
When I read it, I thought that maybe Aish HaTorah in Jerusalem has some sort of gym facility that the rabbis there use, presumably for kiruv purposes.
That's it. Nothing profound in this post.
