If you’ve followed along, you’ve heard Jesse guide Erez in learning his Torah portion (with the help of Trope Trainer software), negotiate with his partner Andy over luncheon fare, and bond with Abdul the suit salesman on the merits of dark tones over bright for an austere occasion such as this one.
