Being L. Bloom
When both Sung-Nam and Jerusalem beckon
Editor’s note: This podcast is now available for educational use only. For more information, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
L. Bloom was born in Sung-Nam, Korea. Adopted as an infant, like her brother, she grew up in a town an hour west of Boston. She’s got relatives in Brookline and Jerusalem, and close friends who are Korean- and Chinese-American. L. is Jewish and Asian, and at 24, she’s still figuring out where she belongs.
Listen to interviews with families who adopted girls from China.

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
Tablet is committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing on Jewish life, all free of charge. We take pride in our community of readers, and are thrilled that you choose to engage with us in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse). Starting today, then, we are asking people who'd like to post comments on the site to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping us bring you the ambitious journalism that brought you here in the first place.
I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
Readers can still interact with us free of charge via Facebook, Twitter, and our other social media channels, or write to us at email@example.com. Each week, we’ll select the best letters and publish them in a new letters to the editor feature on the Scroll.
We hope this new largely symbolic measure will help us create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all of our readers, and, as always, we thank you deeply for your support.
