This is the blog of the one and only original Jewminicana.

I am a first-generation Dominican-American Latina Orthodox Jewish convert.

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 limited edition 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.
