You have to make the effort, too. Are you active in a synagogue now? We go to Temple Beth Sholom. I'm not very active. I love Rabbi Goodman. He's our rabbi and I think he's wonderful. He is. I do spend a lot of time with Rabbi Akselrad because he is extremely spiritual and would like to start a Jewish spiritual center here. Last month I went to the Parliament of the World's Religions in Salt Lake City. It was fabulous. There were ten thousand people representing almost every religion you can think of. I spent a lot of time with Rabbi Akselrad there and we have a meeting next month. I really like him. He really wants to start something spiritual here. We'll see what happens. Those are good goals to have and that shows a growth in the community, too, if you can do that. I'm not very active anymore. It sounds like you were really active when you were younger. I was. Maybe that's when it's the most important. Probably, for your children to see that and when you have more energy. But I never thought I was going to have a business when I was sixty?six and I just do. My time is either spent working, doing things with Stillpoint, the few friends that I love and treasure and stay in touch with. My free time I want to see my children and my parents. I can totally relate to what you're saying there. About being Jewish in Las Vegas, what do you think people should know? It's not a problem. It's very easy to be Jewish in Las Vegas. The Women's League at our synagogue has such a fabulous outreach and the people are fabulous. Our rabbis are fabulous and very inclusive and embracing. I think it's very easy to be Jewish here if you want to.
