Jews kiss hello.

Something that I still struggle with at temple, is that Jews kiss hello. Women kiss women and women kiss men. Men hug each other, but don’t seem to kiss each other too much. The thing is–in Argentina and other countries I’ve visited where kissing is appropriate–you know which cheek to kiss. I’m never quite sure and as a result, almost kissed my rabbi on the lips last night. Oops.

It always reminds me of Marcelo Medio who would go in for the cheek kiss and then switch cheeks on you to get a kiss on the lips. Ah, the intricacies of social kissing. It was so much easier in Tokyo where you just bowed.
