Audrey and Steve Lorber

In second grade, I was
afraid to make friends and
they were afraid to make
friends with me. I was
afraid of what I didn't
know, and they were
afraid of what they didn't
know.
What intrigues you
most about Judaism?
I really like studying
Torah. When I first came
to Hillel, it was very hard.
I had to have tutors, but I
liked the challenge of it
and I knew I had to under-
stand it. What's the point
of reading something if
you don't understand it?
With Torah, there are
situations.
real-life
Although they might have
happened thousands of
years ago, they still reoc-
cur.
What was the biggest
challenge academical-
ly?
Learning Hebrew. It was
the most difficult to under-
stand. Anyone can learn
English, but not everyone
can learn Torah and
Hebrew. It takes patience
to learn your aleph bet.
Do you think there is
anti-Semitism in the
black community?
There is anti-Semitism
everywhere. It's bred into
people. Parents teach their
kids that way, and when
they grow up, they teach
their children that way,
and it just goes on and on.
I've experienced it. It's
happened to me because
people just didn't under-
stand. They're ignorant, I
guess, but I can't change
their viewpoints.

What do you think the
solution is to racism
and anti-Semitism?
People have to want to
solve the problem. They
have to want to learn
about people with different
cultures, nationalities.
Teachers could teach more
about it. You never get
enough of learning.
But a lot of people don't
want to learn. That's why
you have groups like the
Ku Klux Klan. If people
wanted to, they could stop
racism and anti-Semitism,
but some don't want to.
I'm just making sure that
I'm one less bigot.
How about prejudice
between blacks and
white Jews?
That's dumb. Both of

them should just come
together. The Jews have
been in the Holocaust and
blacks have been slaves.
You've got two minorities.
If you come together, you
can make a huge impact
on the rest of the people.
But if you sit there and
you fight each other, what
are you going to accom-
plish?

Where will you attend
high school?
Berkley or Akiva
Hebrew Day School. It'll be
tough to pick either way.
Akiva has the Hebrew, but
Berkley has the sports.
Each school has its advan-
tages and disadvantages.
Most of the kids in my
class are going to public
schools. If I go to Berkley
High, I'll continue my
Hebrew through UHS
classes.
How about marriage?
I don't have a problem
with color — as long as
he's Jewish. I feel that if
I'm Jewish, my kids should
be Jewish. They should
have a Jewish father and
they should be raised in a
Jewish home.
I hope this doesn't hap-
pen, but let's say I do find
a man when I grow up and
I start to fall in love. If he
happens to be Christian
and we decide to get mar-
ried, then I don't think I'd
have kids. I wouldn't want
them to grow up being con-
fused and I wouldn't want
to give them the choice to
be Christian or Jewish. I
don't think that's fair. The
kid may feel that if he goes
with his mom's religion,
then maybe his dad won't
love him anymore.
If I marry a Jewish man,
then my kids won't grow
up confused. Well, not as
confused. I mean, I'm con-
fused about some things
now, but at least religion
will be one less worry for
them.
What is the most
important part of
Judaism for you?
I think it would be main-
taining the Sabbath —
lighting the candles, going
to synagogue, not going to
movies on Friday night
and Saturday. Not a lot of
Jews can do that. It takes
discipline. I think that if
you can accomplish that,
then I think you're ready
for just about anything. CI
