The big question

My parents are wonderful--don't get me wrong. But I asked to be sent to church and/or Hebrew school and they didn't want that.

I'm in college now, attending a Jewish university. I picked it for academics, not religion, but I thought Mom and Dad were going to flip (quietly, like they do, but still). But they actually seem relieved, like my religious education is no longer their responsibility.

I'm embarrassed to be the only kid in temple who doesn't speak Hebrew and doesn't know what's going on. I'm not kidding--I feel like the quintessential half-and-half. One foot in, one foot out.

How do you stay true to your heritage and still fit into both communities?
