"I was raised as a fourth generation Unitarian... I can go back to the Revolution and the Mayflower."
"I married a Jewish man and eventually converted [to Judaism]. Converting for me was not the experience that converting from Catholicism or from Fundamentalist Christianity might be for another woman. For me, it was more of a re-affirmation of everything that I'd always been taught in terms of the basic mitzvot of Judaism. I was taught that religion is not meant to be a 'comfort.' Rather, religion is meant to be a 'challenge...' Ritualistic behavior was not my priority when I converted. What was fundamental to me is the way you conduct your life and what you do for other people, and what kind of difference you make."
