    Thank you for this article. I am Jewish, proud of it, and a member of the Progressive Synagogue here in Cape Townl, South Africa. Since a small child I attended the Orthodox Synagogue here and once my beloved Father passed away, I continued to do so. 5 years ago, my cousin passed away and the service was at the Progressive Synagogue and since then I have been a proud member of this Congregation. Now I can participate in the servce. My Hebrew has improved beyond words *(lived in Israel for 6 years), I have even led the service on occasion, have an Aliyah from time to time, sit with my male and female friends and have developed a stronger feeling of being Jewish. Didn't need anybody to come and TELL me how to be Jewish. Thank you for the article.
