Looking 'White.' Thinking 'Other'

By Bethamie Horowitz

Forward Association, July 1, 2005

The author analyzes how in the past, being Jewish in America was something that was often kept secret, but now, being Jewish is typically associated with status, wealth, and success. The author discusses how American Jews used to forego associating with Judaism, opting to be referred to as 'white,' and how now, checking off 'white,' on a form no longer seems to fit.
