What’s in a Name, Indeed?

Norman Jewison

Actually, Jewison stated in a CBC interview that he was a Lutheran, and not an Anglican (US=Episcopalian), as stated in your blog.

The Doctor's Comment

Doc: I sure will! And by the way, that's quite a name you've got yourself!

Elizabeth is from Elishebha, a Hebrew name, and of course Mary(Miryam) is too. Mary Beth is a very "Jewish" name. So tell that to your critics.
Love,
Doktor

I enjoyed this, particularly since I was among those who were suprised to find that you were "a nice Jewish girl."

what bothers me is when Jewish newspapers, books or other periodicals "out" people who were born Jewish but have never identified as Jews in any way and would rather stay hidden. I say "leave them alone" because to me being Jewish means that, at most, you are proud of your heritage and, at least, you accept it. If you want to hide from it, no one should reveal your secret.

after all, being Jewish should be more than a total accident of birth.

Even appearances can be deceiving. There's a woman working in my building that from all external appearances I would have guessed to be Egyptian.

I assumed that to be the case until one day I heard her talking to one of her co-workers in the strongest Texas twang I've ever heard outside of that state.

She many be Egyptian but by way of Dallas-Fort Worth
