liminal Self

I carry with me three different cultures: Arabic, Israeli, and Canadian. I am the second generation of Moroccan Sephardic Jews. My family was deported from Morocco in the late 1950s, and after wandering through several countries they were eventually deported by sea to Israel. I was born in an immigrant village in the Negev desert of Israel. In my late adulthood I became an immigrant to Canada. I have been questioning my sense of belonging since early childhood, trying to find my place between the Israeli and Arabic cultures at home. I experienced the tensions of being a child who grew up in Hebrew culture, while at the same time carrying the culture of my Moroccan family that was very different from the culture I was born into.
