Sorry – I thought our friends would realize – this is my husband and Dan at the art show.

Interestingly, both Jews and Italians “speak with their hands.”

Nice shot, they look really engaged.

As to the "speaking with hands" I heard of a study recently showing there was a correlation to physical movement when talking with the number of syllables it takes say something in a language. The researchers hypothesised that in Mediterranean languages it tends to take more effort to say something. It also takes more effort to listen, so people gesticulate a lot, sometimes including touching, to hold the listeners' attention. The languages of northern Europe tend to be shorter and more to the point, so the speaker doesn't have to hold the listeners attention for so long and the gestures are less important. Over a period of time these behaviours become ingrained habits of individual speakers and into the culture of speakers as a whole so that they just become the way things are done, even when speaking in a different language.

A great presentation of a dialogue. The contrast between black and white of the Rabbi is awesome.
