In a bittersweet twist of fate, I started out "too Jewish" for my Catholic friends in elementary school, but not Jewish enough for the kids I met at summer camp, with their youth group logos and wristbands. In Israel, I didn't feel I had the right to call myself Jewish at all. Now I was too Christian for Jews everywhere, but still too Jewish to completely fit in with my new bible study friends.In my most pessimistic moments, I wonder if I'll never fit in anywhere, with anyone. It's interesting because Christians are called to be pariahs, to go against the ways of this world. But I am a special kind of pariah.
