You might wonder: what draws a young Orthodox couple to the seat of a renowned football dynasty and the capstone of Alabama public education? The answer lies with the nearly thousand Jewish students on campus, for whom the Lipskiers plan to provide “warm, welcoming, home-cooked meals” and engaging opportunities to learn and grow in their tradition and heritage.
