Meet Ben: Jewish “Cancer-Slayer” of the Week

The platform for Jews in their twenties and thirties, Gather DC, posted a lovely write-up on me for its "Jew of the Week" series. I figured I'd blog about it now before Gather downgrades me to Jew of the Day or Jew of the Hour.

As Published on Gather DC, by Allison Friedman
Ben Rubenstein is one of the most fascinating Arlingtonians (that’s a word, right?) I’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting in my time in the DMV. To elaborate on that bold statement – he’s a published memoir author, decade-long blogger, beer travelog-er, enthusiast of living life in the present moment, and tattoo aficionado. Plus, he hates hummus. Which is just super interesting in itself. Read on to get to know this really amazing human.
