Arianne has stated:
I wanted to clean up my article from Soap Digest a little. I am not both Jewish and Christian. I grew up in an interfaith family. Meaning my Mom is Jewish and my Dad’s family Christian. You can only be one (well you can be anything you want) but knowledgeable of all. So being that my Mom is Jewish, I am Jewish. But we learned about my Dad’s side as well. So in turn we got to celebrate both.
