Understanding the cross-cultural dimension to Jewish life in Soviet Russia is essential for examining the effects of an expanding and changing Soviet consciousness. Set in the early 20th century Soviet Union, this creative piece demonstrates where normative Soviet and Orthodox Jewish cultures clash and explores why the move from The Pale of Settlement to urban centers forced so many Jewish children out of their religious practice. The piece touches on sexuality, religious observance, and the day-to-day dealings of running a Russian household and treats with equal weight all types of
emotional distress.
