“This book helped me to realize that you should disregard your values, traditions and beliefs simply because you are in an environment where those same values and traditions are not embraced.”

I’m scratching my head – but wouldn’t the quote make more sense if it read “that you should *not* disregard your values….”?

Um, perhaps there’s a word missing? As in, “not”?

I love the idea of people all over the world making my great-grandmother's fabulous hamentashen, the same ones my mom made with me and that I mak
