“I went to Herzliah. It was a very close-knit community. Then I got to CEGEP and looked around and there were people of different ethnicities and different backgrounds and people who were 30 years older than me. It was nothing like I’d ever seen before.
I met people and they asked me ‘what’s kosher? What’s Jewish?’ And I thought, ‘I have to explain this now?’ It was a lot of change and it was very difficult at first, but I found a way to embrace it and I really loved it. I ended up making tons of friends from different backgrounds. They come to my Shabbat dinners sometimes!”
