Barbra Streisand Wants To Meet Me

I've been a big fan of Barbra Streisand for more than 50 years, since I was in college, and I was thrilled to learn she wants to meet me.

"Dear Douglas, I'm spending an evening campaigning with Hillary in New York City next week, and I would love to meet you there," she wrote to me.  "I want you to be right up front when I sing."

I was so excited I began worrying about what I'd wear for such an auspicious occasion.  I wonder if my tux still fits.

Rabbi Gerald C. Skolnik is spiritual leader of the Forest Hills Jewish Center.

For the first time in almost 2 years, Israeli police did not detain Women of the Wall participants. Michele Chabin
