A girl with a Jewish mother and a non-Jewish father was raised with no religion, and outside of Jewish culture. Decades later, as an adult, she immersed herself in Jewish life–secular and religious. This led her to be curious about other others who had one Jewish parent: how had they been raised? And how were their lives similar to or different from her own? She knew what her own experiences had been, but she wanted a variety of people with both Jewish and non-Jewish roots to share their stories, and set out to record these stories in a documentary entitled Double Roots.
Please join us for this Lehrhaus event to hear some of these Double Roots interviews as they were recorded by the filmmaker, Madeleine Adkins. And listen to some of the interviewees, as they reflect upon what they said in their interviews, and discuss their lives today
