I recently went to a "fleyshik potluck" — that is, people were asked to bring things that could be eaten with a meat meal. I'm used to vegetarian/dairy potlucks, and I was concerned from the beginning whether this meal would allow me to adhere to my own level of kashrut observance. When I got there, I saw that one of the guests had brought a kugel that was clearly dairy. The hosts put it out on the buffet along with the rest of the food. The whole thing made me really uncomfortable, but I also understand that the host was in a difficult situation. What should they have done? What should I have done?

I went on a date last week with a wonderful guy. He was smart, funny, good-looking, we had a lot to talk about, etc. Sounds perfect, right? Unfortunately, he also smelled awful. I don't mean this in a petty kind of way. He actually smelled like urine. We had a great time, but I was afraid to get too close, and I'm wondering whether I should see him again. What do you think?

Chanukah just isn’t that important! Why do you think so many otherwise unaffiliated Jews go out of their way to celebrate this holiday?
