Hi, I figured while Kevin is off playing in Amish/Mennonite Land that I would report to you all on a article that came across my way. It seems like this past Tuesday some Lancaster County Amish (must of seen Kevin coming) took a tour of a Hasidic neighborhood in Brooklyn's Crown Heights to learn more about their culture and I'm sure to share theirs also.

The 2 groups very similar in dress got alot of stares as they walked side by side through town. The one thing that is funny about the story is the mention of how during the meeting and wandering, all their cell-phones kept going off...LOL

Actually when I was in Lancaster Co. Tuesday I picked up some info on this post...more about the Amish-Jewish  connection tomorrow. I'm tired, loong day.  Thanks for the post, Tom!

 I just now finished reading this article in our hometown paper tonight.  The Hopkinsville, Kentucky New Era.  I was in the process of figuring out how to copy and post it on here.  Thank you for sharing.  Tom, where are you located? Karen

After I asked, I read another post where you said 22 inches of white stuff.  I am orginally from northern Indiana; the Gary and Hammond area, but have lived in Western KY since 71.  I have family and some of my hubby's family lives in MI.  Mine in Holland and Bob's around Flint and Ypsilanti.
Thanks,  Karen
