A Hanukkah Memoir, by Norma Rosen
ENGLISH CORNER, CON LINDA JIMÉNEZ – This week we’re celebrating Chanukah, the Festival of Lights, so this is a special holiday program. In this memoir, “A Generation Reclaims Hanukkah”, American author Norma Rosen tells of her own experience as an American Jew born into a secular family, and the circumstances that brought her closer to Judaism. At a time when Jewish communities around the world are becoming more and more concerned about assimilation, I think you’ll find this piece interesting, as well as uplifting. It was taken from the book Celebrating the Jewish Holidays, edited by Steven J. Rubin and published by the University Press of New England.
