Jake Smith Ebonie Solomon Ashley Hovda CIS 110 Brandi Frisby Interview Transcription (Phone rings, and is answered.) Steve: Hello Interviewers: Hi Steve, this is Jake, Ebonie, and Ashley here, can we ask you some questions? Steve: Hey guys, sure! Interviewers: Ok so our first question is: what are some Jewish traditions you or your family observe? Steve: Well yes. The first and foremost would be the Passover, which to you guys would be the equivalent to what you call the Last Supper. Everyone in my family celebrates it, and we all get together. Another tradition we have Hanukah, which is the substitution for Christmas in the Jewish faith. We bake symbolic foods in oil such as potato pancakes, because Hanukah is the celebration of oil that lasted for eight days. We also celebrate Rashashanah, which is the head of the Jewish New Year. And lastly, another great holiday we observe is Yom Kippur, which stands for the Day of Atonement. Interviewers: Oh wow, that gives us a lot to research, thank you. Steve: Ha ha, no problem. Interviewers: Ok well our next question is: what are the benefits that come from being part of the Jewish community? Steve: Well I would say, having a feeling of continuity between past and present. My family holds traditions that have been passed down from my grandparents to my parents to me, and now I share with my grandkids. It brings a sense of community, and common understanding. Interviewers: I know what you mean, that’s great. Are there any negative things that come from being part of the Jewish community? Steve: Well sadly yes. There is not as much as there used to be in the past, but there are prejudices in the world. For instance, a lady in my office today said, “Well why don’t you just Jew them down until they lower the price?” and that was very rude. I told her I wouldn’t call her an Indian giver, or use the word “gipped” around her for being Indian, so she shouldn’t speak to me that way. Interviewers:
