Last night I went out to a YAC event. Their description (provided on a charming half-size business card designed to prevent older people from being able to read it) is

"YAC stands for `Young Adult Community.' We are Or Shalom's group for 20's, 30's and the young at heart. We're a group of funky, young Jews (and those who love Jews) who meet to socialize, celebrate, learn and have an all around good time. Anyone may attend our events, regardless of membership status at Or Shalom."

Last night Rabbi Laura Kaplan joined us to answer questions about Judaism, ranging from whether a baby is Jewish if it is born of a non-Jewish egg carried by a Jewish woman (something not discussed in the Talmud, surprisingly) to `Jewish continuity. Discuss.'

It was a delight to discover a group of such intelligent and articulate people to spend the evening with. So, in honour of YAC, here's a photograph of a Yak which I took in Mongolia.
