Israelis R Us

URL: http://www.jewishjournal.com/tribe/article/israelis_r_us_20110425

I wasn’t always as proud to be Israeli as I am today. I never hid that I was born in Israel — not that I could, with a name like mine. And I wasn’t embarrassed by my mom’s harsh Israeli accent, because she didn’t have one — she spent the first 10 years of her life in New York. I didn’t have to eat my school lunches surreptitiously. My sandwiches looked like everyone else’s.
