I was raised Jewish, by a Jewish mother, but my father is atheist (raised Protestant) and refused to let me go to Hebrew school as a child. I barely convinced him to let me have a Bat Mitzvah. I don’t know as much as I feel I should. I don’t speak or read Hebrew. My prayers are limited. At this point, I’m afraid I’ll never find a connection to it. It’s so important to me, and yet it feels so distant.
