This past year-and-a-half had Shloime flying from state to state. He had just completed a second successful appearance for the Bais Yaakov Annual Chanukah Concert in Chicago with Dedi on Motzei Shabbos. Sunday morning he hopped on a plane to Baltimore for an NCSY concert. Dedi and Shloime shared a plane, but not seating assignments. Dedi was seated in First Class, and Shloime took his seat in Coach. After a short interval, Shloime was approached by a flight attendant who asked him to join "his brother" in first class. Shloime was somewhat hesitant, but Dedi cleared up everything as soon as Shloime took the seat beside him. Dedi, noticing the seat next to him was empty, explained that their "father" could only afford one First Class ticket and had given it to Dedi, the robust and well-fed of the two "brothers," so that he would be more comfortable. Unfortunately this meant that he and his "brother," Shloime, would be separated for the duration of the flight. The flight attendant was visibly moved by his "brotherly" concern and reunited them in First Class, where both could share all of the niceties of First Class, since "Acheinu Kol Bais Yisroel," as Jews we're all brothers.Things that make you go hmm....
