about

"Someday some schmuck out there will marry me, pay all the bills, and hug me every morning. Isn't that what every mother wants and passes on to her daughters--especially when paid jobs and other income are scarce?"

"What does it feel like to live disguised as an Arab housewife for seven years in a Jewish neighborhood in Brooklyn?" It feels like by doing something differently, I could inspire someone to change the world in a positive way for all sides.

I wish I had a close, loving, warm, joy-filled family. Don't we all? It takes work, but it can be done.

That's why my favorite movie was "My Big, Fat Greek Wedding." I look towards the characters in that movie as role models for how families with a core identity could interact with joy of life.

In the 20 chapters of "Oneday Some Schmuck Will Marry Me, Pay the Bills, And Hug Me," you'll find one family's role in Arab & Jewish Intermarriage: Parents and Children of Jewish Mothers and Arab Moslem Fathers Speak Out.
