An acquaintance gave a few of us a ride after the annual post-Yom Kippur feast.
Married to a Jew, you will be barred from certain circles.I'm pretty sure Jewish girls are a species all their own. They have years and years of inside jokes that they can convey with just a look. My cousin probably knows your sister's best friend. Unless you want to have second dinner at like 10 p.m.? Some of the stuff that we do would not be considered normal in "the real world," aka around non-Jews. For some reason, our hair seems to be a lot frizzier than everyone else's. Ours was a fervent love match, made more fervent by the fact that we had to wait in secret for two years until Ben earned enough at his profession to support a family. Here we are then, Ben and I, a Jew and a German-American, married for four years, supremely happy, with a three-year-old son who has his father's quick brown eyes and my yellow hair.Debates about intermarriage, or marriage outside of the faith, are common in the Jewish community, but her question still struck me as remarkable.
