Activist, Author, and Visionary Melanie Kaye-Kantrowitz, 1945-2018
“What do I mean by home? Not the nation state; not religious worship; not the deepest grief of a people marked by hatred. I mean a commitment to what is and is not mine; to the strangeness of others, to my strangeness to others; to common threads twisted with surprise.”
From her book The Colors of Jews: Racial Politics and Radical Diasporism, 2007. Quoted by Maya Salam, The New York Times, August, 13, 2018.
