The Paper Chase: A Comical Story of One Man’s Race to Beat the Clock
In 2009, on a weekend that saw wind chills fall below zero, 800 Jewish people were attending a conference at a resort in the Catskills when the heat went out. Among the many challenges that arose was the need to procure disposable plates and cutlery to feed those cold people — all within the two hours left before sunset. What followed was a frenzied race that proved to be a great story filled with twists and turns, suspense, and a lot of laughs. This story, which also includes a slide show and info about the Jewish laws governing the Sabbath and keeping kosher, was a hit at this year’s AG.
Matthew Grob is multi-faceted, like a gemstone. If you hold him up to the light at a certain angle, you maybe able to see your reflection. If you do, there will be six more weeks of winter. This story actually happened to him, and he has told it to audiences, including in a session at this year’s Annual Gathering in Hollywood, FL
