My Jewish and zionist heritage is an integral part of my being. I am also a humanist. Does this mean I am not a Jew? Of course, it doesn't. Why were my relatives killed in the holocaust, why was my family involved in the founding of the state, why do so many members of my family live in Israel, why do I spend a great deal of time there, why do I go to synagogue to further identfy myself as a Jew. To be told by the haredim that I am not Jewish because I eat pork and shellfish and drive on Shabbat. What nonsense! If Judaism is to survive it must encompass all who want to be Jewish, not simply people who dress themselves in black and claim to keep the mitzvot.
