Half/Life: Jew-ish Tales. Being a half, says Snyder, is not second best; it is not a pale imitation of being really Jewish. Rather, "half" is an interesting, incorrigible, perplexing and profound moniker in its own right, a label that somehow captures the existential angst that all people experience. Read cover to cover, the anthology begins to feel suffocating in its folks reflecting smartly about their struggles with identity.

My Jewish mother used to tell me an anecdote about a boy from the old neighborhood who was half Jewish. That's one of the truths several of the contributors to Laurel Snyder's edifying anthology Half Jews painfully learn while growing up both Jewish and gentile in America. These products of intermarriage are never quite accepted by Jews because of their dual heritages.

Magazine article Tikkun. Magazine article Tikkun. ACCORDING TO A STUDY published in the American Jewish Yearbook, by 1966 the rate of intermarriage in American Jewish homes had climbed from 9 percent to a stunning 32 percent. It's not hard to imagine that many of the contributors in Laurel Snyder's new anthology Half/Life: Jew-ish Tales from Interfaith Homes are the products of those unions. Describing a seder populated by other half-Jews, contributor Jennifer Traig writes, "after the four questions, they ask me a fifth: What should we do about the kids?"

Written by authors born into the so-called “dilemma of intermarriage,” the stories in Half/Life explore the experience of being raised in a half-Jewish home. Though each essay is distinct, and the experiences are vastly different, each describes growing up without a streamlined identity, unsure of community or religious direction. From Jenny Traig, whose experiences led her to extreme devotion in the form of religious-obsessive compulsion (scrupulosity) to Thisbe Nissen, who finally felt Jewish after discovering a rosary in her boyfriend’s sock drawer, these authors examine the complicated relationships they felt with the Jewish community and the world at large. By turns tragic and funny, religious and heartbreaking, angry and surprisingly familiar, Half/Life represents the altogether diverse memories and reflections of a handful of men and women who have spent a lifetime grappling with how to define themselves, or not. Resulting from that struggle is a complex exploration, and some truly brilliant prose.
