Editor's Note:  Clearly having a Jewish person visit the burg seems to be a big deal or why point it out? However, it seems as he was met with hospitality.  I like that Allen enjoyed learning all he could.
He never seemed to miss a lecture or see the offerings of popular culture when they came to Jamestown.
