On not wishing to stand out like a sore thumb :(

I was really tickled when I saw MOChassid's announcement of a Yosef Karduner concert in a synagogue in his area tomorrow night. But my husband doesn't want to go to concerts in the mostly-(right-wing?)-Orthodox Five Towns anymore. "I don't belong there," he said. As disappointed as I am about missing the concert, I can imagine how he must have felt the last time we went to one there, when he was just about the only guy in the room wearing both a colored shirt and a colored kippah s'rugah. Ironically, Ms. Tallit-and-Tefillin-Wearing Egalitarian can "pass," but he can't.
