After a few days witnessing no incidents, I soon realized that the anti-Semitism I faced in grammar and middle school was not the norm, and was a product of growing up in an all- white, religiously homogenous suburb. I met new people, and new guys. A year later, I moved to Skokie, Illinois, famed for having the largest amount of Holocaust survivors in America and a threatened neo-Nazi march in the mid s, the legal case over which went all the way to the United States Supreme Court. At what point in time did men stop trying to woo women and when did women stop wanting it to happen? Because of my immense privilege, I know I will likely never experience the trauma many Jewish people experience on a regular basis. As a half Jew, despite the anti-Semitism I have faced, I know I will likely never encounter the hatred of most Jews experience. Everything without moving off the couch.
And for us women, we want to be courted and when a woman says she is not, she is lying to herself.
Jew-ish: Finding My Interfaith Identity
My friends and I stood in silence. I met new people, and new guys. Sign in Get started. We want to stand in front of the mirror for hours and get dressed, we want to consult with our BFF and we want to feel butterflies. We both sat on her couch attached to our phones for two hours and move the screen left and right. I rolled my eyes and continued eating my lunch.
