over the issues of interfaith
and interracial marriage
with Rabbi Steinger. She wor-
ries that raising children as
Jews will always be a conflict
if she doesn't marry a Jew.
She says she tries not to dwell
on it and believes that the
conflict will work itself out
when the time comes.
Clermont learned to read
Hebrew easily and is comfor-
table following the services.
She finds the older, regular
temple members most friend-
ly and those in their late 40s
to 50s most uncomfortable by
her presence. "They are not
unfriendly, they just act like
ybu don't exist or they try to
look like they don't notice
you, that you're no different,"
she explains. The younger
congregants' reactions are
mixed. "A lot of them are un-
comfortable around black
people. It will be that way as
long as America is the way it
is. You see it, you recognize it
and you go on. One day peo-
ple won't see color. But it
won't be in my lifetime.
"My parents used to say
that Sammy Davis, Jr. (a con-
vert to Judaism) was a glut-
ton for punishment. As if life
wasn't hard enough, you have
to add one more thing to it:"
Clermont hopes that she
will get more comfortable
about letting people know she
is a Jew. Her sister found out
in the middle of a large
Manhattan department store.
"A very stereotypical
Jewish woman noticed my
Star of David which I've been
wearing about five years, and
bluntly asked me if I was
Jewish. I said, Now I am, and
my sister said, 'What do you
mean, now you are?' So I pull-
ed her aside and told her I
had converted.
"My biggest fear with
regard to my mother is _that
she'll feel she failed me. She
gave me religious training,
but the greatest gift she gave
me was that she also taught
me to be open-minded and to
believe what I wanted and not
what she believed, or my dad
believed or the preacher or
the guy next door believed:'
