Hi! I’m actually catholic, but my best friend jewish, I say this to clarify that I’m not sure if anything of what I’m saying will offend anyone, I apologize right now if it does and please tell me how, in order to prevent it from happening in the future. Having said so.
My best friend has been having some struggles regarding her identity as a Jewish, and this is partly because every time she looks for something Jewish-related to read, it ends up being about the Holocaust, or WWII and though it is important, she just wants to read something positive or happy about her culture.
This has been a problem for quite some time, and I would really like to help her out, or have something to say about it, but I just don’t feel like it’s my place to do or say anything. It is because of this that I come to you:
dear Jews of Reddit, what book about your culture, religion or heritage would you recommend, and why? Take in mind she is an 18 year old Ashkenazi.
Again, if anything of what I said offended anyone, please point it out, I am really sorry and I will work to stop doing or saying so. I just wanna help my friend out and this is the one Jewish community I know.
Edit: I actually posted this exact same thing in r/jew , but I feel like this is quite more active, so I wanted to check if I got something different.
