Judith Solomon Franco
"Judith Solomon Franco?s primary years in a non-Jewish Los Angeles neighborhood in the 1940s left a lasting imprint on her identity as a Jew. How many times has she sat on the porch waiting for her Christian friend to finish up dinner and listening to the evening Catholic radio station to go outdoors to play? Through her circuitous journey, she came home to her Yiddishkeit, which she expresses intermittently throughout her book set against a backdrop of her environment. Mrs. Franco has a bachelor of arts in business and a minor in philosophy. She lives in a growing Jewish community in Las Vegas, Nevada."
