When Orthodox Jews Are A Tourist Attraction

Baruch writes: Walking to shul on Shabbos afternoon for Mincha, through the 3rd and Highland intersection of Hancock Park, BCC spots a tour bus, with the tour guide pointing at BCC and other Orthodox Jews walking, and the tourists are taking pictures. BCC could swear he could read their redneck mouths saying:. “Look, Martha, there’s those Jeeeewwwssss we be readin’ ’bout.” These tourists are gawking pointing and taking pictures as if they never saw Jews before. Paranoid, or are we Orthodox Jews viewed by tourists on our Sabbath dressed in our suits and hats on show as a tourist attraction?
