Hmm - coming across a menorah and a kippah (you spelled it right) really does sound as if your family was Jewish, and maybe hid it, in order to stay alive! How interesting! I wonder if your mother's father left in order to try to help his loved ones survive - not being associated with a Jew... How incredibly, deeply sad the Holocaust makes me! I wish we had more prayers and theology about it. Are you a Catholic? I am a Jew by birth - and I still love Jews and Judaism, am learning Hebrew and all - but I have been led to become a Catholic, too. Just feeling a strong sense of love and help from Jesus. It's hard sometimes - with people who know me and love me, I am open about being a Jewish Christian, but with those who don't I tend to keep secrets. Anyway, I wish you well and hope your spiritual journey brings you light and love.
