Michelle Rojas Tal is the granddaughter of a Holocaust survivor on her mom’s side, and the daughter of a Puerto Rican non-Jewish father. She grew up in New York City, where she had pride in both heritages, and a full understanding that she was one of the Jewish people.
She was 16 years old when the Twin Towers blew up across the river from her high school.
