Sorry that Muffti has been absent for a while – he’s been travelling a bit after participating in a conference in France. Anyhow, he’s in Israel now, hanging with some of his favourite people and meeting some fascinating new ones. Last night, over beer and tequila/jagermeister shots, he had the following wonderful and hillarious exchange with Esther:


Muffti: Wow, it’s really great to be here.
Esther: Really? Do you feel blessed to be close to the presence of, wait, you’re an atheist, I guess, you feel blessed to be closer to the non-presence of the non-existent diety you don’t believe in?
Muffti: Uh, no, it’s just cool to see old friends…

Anyhow, Muffti is glad to be here and grateful that old friends like CK will still put him up, even when he shows up 15 hours late (Muffti blames his friends in Brighton, but that’s another story!). Israel is a beautiful place he recommends everyone to visit, even if they don’t feel spritually elevated, enveloped in the warm presence of God, or the overwhelming power of the wailing wall.

And TM, Michael and Rabbi Yonah: wish you were here.

  • Muffti!

    Good to hear from you, I was wondering why there was silence on your end. I wish I were there as well – maybe the next time around if you put in a good word for me with The Boss.

    Have fun and be well.

  • It’s also the national homeland of the Jewish people, irregardless of God or not. Just as Italy is the home of the Italians, France the home of the French, so too is Israel the home of the Jews.

  • Dear Mufti
    Would have loved to be there. On may way to London for Rabbi Ybocher’s wedding July 4th. Hope you reach the highest heights!

  • France is home to the French, and to a few covert ringers playing for their World Cup team. Go Portugal.
