This week on Unorthodox, who said it: Harry Potter star Emma Watson or Hillel the Elder?

Our Jewish guest is professional football player Geoff Schwartz, one-half of the first set of Jewish brothers to play in the NFL since Ralph and Arnold Horween in 1923. He and his brother, Mitchell Schwartz, are the authors of a book called Eat My Schwartz: Our Story of NFL Football, Food, Family, and Faith. He tells us about cooking latkes for his teammates, why he plays on Yom Kippur, and starting the 2016 NFL season as a free agent.

Our Gentile of the Week is Patricia Napier-Fitzpatrick, founder and president of The Etiquette School of New York, which offers lessons on everything from dining etiquette and table manners to social-media protocol and workplace small talk. She tells us the most frustrating behavior she sees young people exhibiting today, and asks about proper etiquette for a non-Jewish person attending synagogue.

Join us Monday, Sept. 19 at 7 p.m. for an exciting live taping at the JCC of Greater New Haven. Tickets are available here.
