Think the Emanuel brothers—Rahm, Ari, and Zeke—are power players?
His first book for young readers, Zeke BARTHOLOMEW: SUPERSPY!
Zeke and I talked a lot about love, family, marriage, our future.
But Zeke and I had given up so much to leave our ultra-Orthodox communities and become the individuals we were.
A few weeks after meeting Zeke, I told a friend of mine that I could see myself spending my life with him.
"You see I have not lived here long enough to become acquainted with everybody as Zeke has," replied Wheaton.
"I don't know," said Zeke, wiping his fingers on the hair of his head.
Zeke dropped it as if it had been a hot coal, and stood staring at it where it lay wilting on the hot ground.
Zeke was grinning to himself as he saw them step aboard the train.
Of course, as Zeke afterwards expressed it, “if he was coming in, we wanted to go out.”
from Greek Thomas, of Aramaic origin and said to mean "a twin" (John's gospel refers to Thomas as ho legomenos didymos "called the twin;" cf. Syriac toma "twin," Arabic tau'am "twin").

twin, one of the twelve (Matt. 10:3; Mark 3:18, etc.). He was also called Didymus (John 11:16; 20:24), which is the Greek equivalent of the Hebrew name. All we know regarding him is recorded in the fourth Gospel (John 11:15, 16; 14:4, 5; 20:24, 25, 26-29). From the circumstance that in the lists of the apostles he is always mentioned along with Matthew, who was the son of Alphaeus (Mark 3:18), and that these two are always followed by James, who was also the son of Alphaeus, it has been supposed that these three, Matthew, Thomas, and James, were brothers.
