My dad is a Catholic and my mom is Jewish. So I got to see both sides. I got to do Passover, and I got to do Christmas. There was always more about the cultural aspect and the spirituality aspect of (religions), just having a relationship with God… I dropped out of Hebrew school. Maybe one day when I’m, like, 31 or something, we’ll run it back (with a Bar Mitzvah).
