Is it wrong for me to be mad at my mom for not teaching me more about Judaism?

My mom comes from a line of Ashkenazi Jews from Ukraine, and she practiced the religion well into her 20’s, where she then converted to Paganism. My older sister and I were raised with a combination of those beliefs, but more often than not, Judaism took a back seat. I am grateful for the knowledge I have of the Pagan faith, and still hold to many of those beliefs, but I cannot help but wonder why my mother didn’t teach us more about our culture and religion. We observe Hannukah, and I have attended one Passover Seder that I remember in my 20 years. There are no temples to speak of near where we live. Though I hate to admit it, I feel resentful towards her for not making sure my sister and I knew about our people and our culture. I feel disconnected and alienated from my own bloodline. Is it wrong for me to feel this way? I’m sure my mother has her reasons but I have mine as well.
