My friend, and high-school buddy Brett Berk writes a car column, Stick Shift, for Vanity Fair online. When I started thinking about how to replace my old car, I figured he is the one to ask. Brett directed me to a bunch of cars, and we still have not figured out what I should drive. So Brett wrote this entertaining column, What Should a Rabbi Drive for Vanityfair.com, about our quest, and you can vote at the end for which wheels you think I should be piloting.
He needed to find a new car, a quest that offered Stick Shift an irresistible opportunity, seeing as how Rosh Hashanahâ€”my peopleâ€™s New Yearâ€”and the start of the 2010 automotive model year both begin tomorrow. New year: new car; they go together like kishka and kuggel. So good Yom Tov and Lâ€™Shanah Tovah. Now letâ€™s get the Rebbe a ride.
