Baltimore’s Jewish Times tracks down Jack Abramoff, the convicted felon who was once among the most powerful lobbyists in Washington. He is now working a local pizza joint, Tov Pizza, which claims to be “Baltimore’s Best Kosher Pizza.” Not clear if Tov will start offering “YOU IZ DA MAN” slices, but Abramoff has also brushing up on his Torah teaching. Per the article,

According to one of the Jewish former inmates at the prison, during his incarceration Abramoff gave shirum, or Torah lectures, to the Jewish inmates on an almost daily basis. He focused on Nach, Halachah (Jewish law) and the weekly Torah portion.  He also taught an introduction to davening course.
