Love Story…or is it?
David was a typical Jewish kid. He went to a mostly Jewish public school, hung out mostly with Jewish friends and never really thought about his people or his religion. David went to Sunday school and synagogue on the high holidays, but it never meant very much to him. It was just something that everyone did. He knew he was Jewish, but it was never really an issue.
One night the camp decided to sleep out in the woods. David took his group out on a nature hike and a swim on the lake. When the time for dinner came, David built a great campfire- and all the kids ate hot-dogs, hamburgers and smores (they didn't even think about kashrut). The kids sang songs and told ghost stories and David went to sleep content and happy.
For some strange reason (maybe it was all the hot-dogs) David didn't sleep for long. He woke up and everyone else was still asleep and it was hours until morning. Try as he might, he could not go back to bed. Frustrated, David decided to go for a walk. He found the trail to the lake - he'd always wanted to see the lake in the moonlight - and began walking. It was a short trail and when he got there and he sat down on the sand and gazed out at the water.
There's only one problem - Catherine's not Jewish
