Today is December 15, 2019 -


Virginia has about 8 million people.  I personally know nine of them.  I was there in November and did not run into anyone whom I know.

New Jersey is about 8 thousand square miles.  I personally know approximately a couple dozen of its residents.  When I go there to visit family, I see the family and never run into anyone else whom I might know.

Israel is the approximate size of New Jersey with the approximate population of Virginia. 

My wife and two oldest daughters are there this week for a family simcha.  The plane landed on Wednesday.  A few hours later they were shopping in a random mall when they ran into a former classmate of one of my daughters who made Aliyah a couple of years ago. 

Only in Israel?
