AboutBatsheva Isaac, Author at Jewess
I was a kallah! A bride!
I was 23, an old maid by some Orthodox Jewish standards.
As a newly religious person, a baal teshuva, I was getting used to the idea that I was marrying so young. I thought, “You don’t even have a career yet. You just got engaged after one month and dating. Are you crazy? You don’t know this man!”
I’ve always had an odd sense of humor. I like to make fun of the things that most people would be appalled at. Nothing is off limits for me.
“So, what is the plan for today?” I ask.
“We are going first to Har Herzl, then Yad Vashem, and finish off with a trip to Hevron and Maras Hamichpalah,” said my son, Levi.
“Sounds like a death day tour.”
