Jews of Color: Taking Charge of Your Jewish Identity
It is not unusual for a Jew of color to be asked, “How did you get to be Jewish?” Quite simply the question stems from their appearance – “You don’t look Jewish.”
There are a number of ways that an adult from a biracial Jewish or interfaith family can arm themselves for these micro-aggressions. Kim Carter Martinez, the biracial daughter of an African American father and a white Ashkenazi mother, has spent years honing her skills and is pleased to teach others how to own your identity in spite of the doubts of others.
