“…And finally I ask about how anti-Semitism has come to make her feel about her own identity. And once more she smiles; a deep, broad grin. ”I’m a secular Jew. Neither of my husbands were Jewish. I’ve never even done the Jewish festivals. We’ve never been integrated into the Jewish community in any real sense.”
“But can I tell you something?” she asks, smiling still.
“My father tried to make me a Jew and he failed. The family rabbi tried to make me a Jew and he failed. My friends tried to make me a Jew and they failed…it took Jeremy Corbyn to finally succeed in making me a Jew.” She pauses.
“I would laugh,” she continues. “But obviously I have no sense of irony.”…”
