Laurel Snyder reclaims her split identity

Print Email

Laurel and parents, Thanksgiving, 1976

Poet and writer Laurel Snyder’s mother is a regular churchgoer. Her father helped found a synagogue in Baltimore. Laurel is not particularly confused about her religious identity, but she says that other people—Jews and non-Jews alike—seem to be. She’s culled her own and other writers’ reflections on being children of interfaith marriages for a new collection titled Half/Life: Jewish Tales from Interfaith Homes.
