Inside is one of the main Jewish prayers.” I’m not sure if he was impressed or shocked, but either way, his face nearly dropped to the floor. He looked exactly like Donny with an extra thirty years. I shared how I got started in my field, how I was inspired by a young social worker who helped my cousins when I was young.
“This is a mezuzah,” he explained, pointing to the small doorpost affixed diagonally, “not exactly sure what it means, but it’s some kind of Jewish law.” “Yeah. This is Steven.” I gazed into the future as Donny’s father approached. A couple glasses of wine and a delicious main course later, the four of us were talking about my job as a social worker.
