The immigrant story you don’t know and won’t see anywhere else! Stories, poems, and songs written by Latin Jews reveal funny, poignant, and pivotal moments in their lives. One 14-year-old girl learns the lesson of social justice when her actions help a close family member “surface” in Argentina after she has “disappeared” during the Dirty War. A Sephardic Jewish woman from Mexico City can’t understand why she’s such an oddity in a small town in Oregon. A convert from Cuba is moved when members of her shul help to arrange a Catholic funeral for her beloved mother. These and other stories will move you and make you laugh. A winner for all!
