Elliott is an MOT

I asked about it in Wednesday night's post, and I have received an answer. According to a co-worker who has a friend whose sister knows his family, Elliot Yamin is Jewish.

Isn't it a quirky English thing that you put "an" before MOT, but if you were spelling it out, you'd put "a" Member of the Tribe...

I thought about the same thing--great minds think alike!

Well, there's nothing more reliable than a co-worker whose friend's sister knows something...

Joe,

It stands for "member of the tribe," and is a shorthand term that Jews sometimes use to refer to fellow Jews.
