This is the blog of the one and only original Jewminicana.
I am a first-generation Dominican-American Latina Orthodox Jewish convert. Try saying all that five times fast and you’ll quickly realize why I call myself a Jewminicana instead.
I am a former teen runaway from New York City who kidnapped her sisters, fought her mother for custody and won, converted to Judaism, married a rabbi and moved to Los Angeles. Along with being a writer, blogger, educator and speaker, I am the mommy of a toddler-sized Jewminicano.
Here are my thoughts on being mixed race, Hispanic & Jewish, focusing on identity, Judaism, Jews of colors, Latinos, diversity, race, ethnicity, conversion to Judaism, culture, multiculturalism, illness, disability (including Ehlers Danlos, formerly diagnosed as fibromyalgia), news etc.
