Telling My Story

It's time for a new post at Beyond BT - along with their one-year anniversary, I think it's been almost an entire year since I have been writing for them as well (I know my first post there was about Chanukah).

Check it out - Telling My Story. Enjoy!


  • Excellent article.

    My situation is a little similar to yours in a few ways. I wasn't raised in an observant home (though we did have a Friday night dinner and keep kosher in the home), and I also became more observant so long ago, I hardly think about it anymore. Further, like in your case, no specific Jewish organization is "responsible" for having done kiruv on me... it was a byproduct of things I figured out on my own and people I knew in High School (though I went to a public school until High School, I went to a Yeshiva Day School for HS).

    The only odd thing is: I never really get asked to "tell my story". Maybe I "pass" too well for FFB... people always seem surprised to learn that I once ate cheeseburgers and shrimp.

  • i liked your little essay. i also like how you are striving to find your own "fit" with frumkeit, not following a particular hashkafa. and i agree with the person who commented on "beyond bt," i think the ffb's are just being curious.

    p.s. do you have a southern accent? i knew a girl from alabama once and hers was so cute!

  • LT -
    I miss those cheeseburgers and shrimp! The fake stuff is no real substitute ;)

    Maven -
    I have a little bit of an accent, mainly in the form of saying "y'all." Unfortunately, I've been out of the south so long that my accent has gone away.
