I recently got a job at a Jewish organization and love it. They orchestrate important charitable work and there is a wonderful sense of work/life balance, largely thanks to all the time off for Jewish holidays and Shabbat.
Here’s the thing. It’s been six months and I have yet to tell anyone that my mom is not Jewish and that I wasn’t raised with much Judaism. I haven’t lied to anyone yet, but the more they get to know me the closer I feel I am getting to the moment when I have to say something or be dishonest. Seesaw, should I tell them or is it reasonable to keep this private? If you think I should tell them, how?
