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 One Day Some Schlemiel 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.
