Where Jewish Grandmothers Come From by Debra L. Winegarten

Winegarten brings us her sequel to "There's Jews in Texas?" keeping the conversation of Jewish identity, practice, and family alive and thriving in the Diaspora.



Where Jewish Grandmothers Come From

How many Jewish grandmothers does it take to change a light bulb?

"Never mind, I'll just sit in the dark."

North Dallas. Third grade. 1967.

Christmastime. Third period before lunch.

I don't remember where I learned that

God would strike me down with lightening

If I said the "Jesus" word, even in a song.


So when the whole music class went caroling

In the halls the last week in December

I sat in the dark classroom, alone.
