I am Jewish and proud of it!! :) I am in 12th grade, working on finishing high school, and I have been crazily, insanely obsessed with Harry Potter since I was 9. Things I enjoy doing in the spare time I don't have (other than Harry Potter and HPFF) include horseback riding, sewing/ designing my own clothing, reading, writing, hiking, discussing/ arguing/ protesting over the political situation in the Middle East, and hanging out with the amazingly awesome, supportive friends I have, who don't understand my INSANE obsession for HP but support it anyway, and without whom I never would have gotten this far through high school. I LOVE U GUYS!!! :D
Summary: Tzipporah Stein, a Jew living in Vienna, Austria on the eve of WWII, is shocked when she gets a letter telling her she is a witch. The volatile state of Europe as it waits for both a muggle and a wizarding war to begin has prompted Hogwarts to take in students from many countries. How will Tzipporah handle magic, mischief, and even a little romance while trying to be true to her religion and culture at the same time?
I've just started reading this story, and I love it! It's so much fun seeing all of these mentions to Judaism and Jewish Heritage in a HP fanfic. Additionally, as today happens to be Holocaust Rememberance Day on the hebrew calendar, my finding this story now is interesting timing. Keep up the good work, I look forward to reading more!
