        Questioning Jewish Identity

        In this video segment from the PBS series Finding Your Roots, Rabbi Angela Buchdahl discusses her experiences growing up and details encounters that caused her to question her Jewish identity. Buchdahl explains she struggled with her religion because people doubted her faith for superficial reasons (for example, she did not “look” Jewish and she did not have a “Jewish name”). In the end, Buchdahl’s questioning led to her decision to become a rabbi.
