  • I don’t know. I think America has a resilient political system that makes me proud to be American. Moreover, I seriously doubt that many of the stories in the bible actually happened. Thus, it is hard for me to be a ‘hardcore’ Jew. Too much doubt there. Some days I want to quit being Jewish, but I’m too moved by the Kol Nidre and the Kaddish to ever quit.
