By Bryony Gordon, December 23, 2009
My name is Bryony and I am, in the words of Jonathan Miller, Jew-ish. In my 29 years on this planet, I have been to a synagogue twice — once for the barmitzvah of a family friend, and the next time, I seem to recall, on a school trip.
I could not tell the difference between Yiddish and Hebrew if I tried.
This year, in keeping with every other year, I shall celebrate Christmas instead of Chanucah.
I am a screaming atheist — I’m not in the slightest bit religious. And, technically, I am not the slightest bit Jewish.
