Takes All Kinds

Jews are a varied type of people.

I found this one by accident:

People like Jim Levinson. Although not an ordained rabbi, educator Levinson is spiritual leader of the Brattleboro Area Jewish Community and a learned scholar of his faith who is also knowledgeable about Christianity and Islam. His knowledge of the history and tenets of Islam and how they coincide with those of Judaism served the community well last fall, when he presided over a combined Jewish/Islam Sabbath service at Congregation Shir He Harim in Brattleboro. The Friday evening service was coda to the weeklong program, Salaam/Shalom, put together by SIT, with cooperation from the BAJC and many contributors. Levinson lives with his family in Marlboro, Vermont.
