Genealogy: How Many Times Must I Ask Myself? They Were Jewish? Are You Kidding Me?


It’s been at least five years, and I’ve written six books on the topic and I still shake my head in disbelief and ask myself, “Are you kidding? Jewish?” Unbelievable. Both my mother and father may have heard hints of it, but it didn’t sink in. I don’t believe they understood that their ancestors were Jewish. What a kick. I only wish they could have lived long enough to understand their colorful genealogy. My father with his bible and Christian teachings, the Christian prayer book he read daily, the bible verses my mother wrote on the family message board, the Sunday school teachings, the pictures of her mother holding flowers for the Lutheran church altar, all paint a picture of devout Christian belief. But before all these practices, is a history of names and clues that uncover a Jewish legacy that dates back thousands of years. Who’d a thunk?
