My brother thinks he went to a shiur where the rabbi said to be closer to his off the derech siblings so he can be mekarev us (try to make us more religious)
Over the course of the conversation I asked him if he was coming to my wedding. he responded with silence and then was like "Well that's a complicated question" and I was all "well it's not really a complicated question, either you're coming or you're not" and he was silent and kept not answering.

Well, on the bright side, at least I don't have to find kosher food for him for the wedding. Although I still have a friend I have to find kosher food for...

Other then some dumb messages on facebook. I haven't seen him in 2 years. Still, it would have been nice if he would have come...
