She shared her stories with all of us and that became her legacy, a treasure chest filled with wisdom that was her gift to all of us kids who listened, ate her food and laughed at her jokes. She came from an exclusive generation: a generation that has been chronicled, written about, movies made, beloved family photos held dear with home videos and audios in our personal archives.

But tell it. This is not a judgment on what kind of Jew you are. Did you marry someone of another religion and let your faith go by the wayside or did you want more Judaism? As a teen, did hanging out with your Jewish friends create bonds and fun times you still hold dear?
