Proud To Be Jewish
I like this column by actress Mayim Bialik titled "Why I Wear My Jewish Star." She says "In the middle of the conflicts in Israel and Gaza this month, and in the middle of the virulent attacks I was coming under on social media, I put on my Magen David – my Star of David necklace – and it strangely felt like putting on armor," she says. "It felt like a statement. Gold armor around my neck: The way I show that I am Jewish and that I am not afraid to be so." I did the same thing, as I'm sure many Jews have.
