What Else She Said

I was never an activist, but my parents have always been the kind of people who have many guests at their Shabbat tables that most don’t want—not guests to entertain, but people who are disturbed, on the fringes of society, very needy people. As a child growing up, I went through stages of being annoyed with them, because we couldn't ever have a normal Shabbat meal, to finally a realization that our entire home was like a sanctuary because of the enormous work that my mother and father were doing—to take these people in and talk to them, listen to them. That gave me the idea that everybody's got to do something.
