Alma is the new home for female Jewish millennials. It’s filled with fun pop culture articles, essays on bat mitzvahs, reviews of every new episode of “Broad City,” and relatable stories about JSwiping, throwing parties, and going to college.
Since I grew up with a fairly average Jewish life in Minnesota, I never realized that I might be different.
Like any proud Jewish family, our home was centered on Judaism and Zionism. It was a kosher home. We went to synagogue every Shabbat. I was active in our JCC and spent summers at Jewish camps.
When I started my conversion process seven years ago, I immediately noticed something: Jews love food.
I grew up in a white, middle-class American family. My background is a mishmash of English, Irish, German, and Scottish. In my home, food was never emphasized. It was more like something you simply needed to get by.
