Great Moments in Jewish Geography

Chances are, just about every Jewish knows or has met five or six people with the name "Dan Shapiro." I can think of three off the top of my head and there have likely been a few others as well. Anyway, I made quick note yesterday, when a Dan Shapiro was reported to be named U.S. ambassador to Israel- could he be one of the ones I know?

Turns out, yes- he was a unit head at the summer camp in Wisconsin, OSRUI, that I attended as a kid, in '89 or '90 or so. I was 11 or 12 at the time and I guess he was 20 or 21. Also- he's a Brandeis alum.
