The Old Man and the Schnook

A literary short story published on-line in Tikkun Daily, July 26, 2021

This story explores what happens when two generations and two very different outlooks meet under strained circumstances. An older Jewish activist finds himself forced to attend meditation workshops, and the younger instructor forced to offer them reacts. Max disparages this “guru schnook” and Caspar has only disdain for “a do-gooder geezer”. Whose side are you on?
