My friends and I went to the Jewish Film Festival to see “Hava Nagila.” Highly recommended. Opens in Los Angeles at the Laemmle theaters and Encino Town Center next week.

We’re standing in a slow-moving shuffling line to get out of the theater. The man behind us says “Funny, you don’t look Jewish.”

He’s right. We’re caught. Ish is clearly brown and CC looks pretty Latina. Me? My friend Jim described me as “The most goyish looking person in the world.” Huh. I thought Jessica Simpson had me beat.

“Just fans,” Ish says.

    We come in all colors and ethnicities. We got around– because we kept getting thrown out of places.

      I just thought it was hilarious to put it that way – being a fan of Jewishness like he’s a fan of a rock band.
